After those late nights, there really is nothing like a stiff coffee to get you back into working order. Still, it is rare that this makes it into the stockpile or even into the bug out bag.
I don’t know if anything would be better than a cup of coffee the first morning after the radical stress of SHTF.
There are many benefits of coffee to the human condition but also to how it would affect various prepper related scenarios. Most of these benefits are going to positively affect your daily experience and survival experience.
Obviously, the way the brain functions is highly affected by caffeine. In a serious SHTF scenario, your heightened senses and alertness are going to make all the difference. You are going to be tired and beat down from the circumstance.
This could even be from a simple power outage or natural disaster. Coffee heals a lot and really gives you the ability to push over that hill.
You’re addicted. If you are a regular coffee drinker you are addicted and you cannot take that for granted. The last thing you want is one of those vicious caffeine headaches because you dont have any coffee.
You have to be honest about this. Its something you are going to suffer through if you dont have it. Be prepared for that. You know what kind of monster you can be without your coffee. Dont let that happen.
Another powerful reason to stockpile coffee is that others are addicted and others are dying to have some! Imagine what you can achieve with a stockpile of coffee in the barter.
It’s not that you want to take advantage of people but you want to have a high-level set of barter items so you can get those things you need.
