Noocaf Smart Coffee
Noocaf Smart Coffee is Arabica ground coffee beans along with added nootropic ingredients designed to enhance focus, concentration, relaxation, and memory.
The caffeine in Noocaf is at the level typically found in Arabica coffee which averages to be about 160 mg per 8 fl oz cup when 2 tablespoons of ground coffee are used. This amount can vary depending on the brewing method, brew time, and growing conditions.

Noocaf Smart Coffee Review
I received a 12 oz bag of Noocaf's Focus blend coffee to sample for this review.
I was interested to try this product because while I've reviewed a lot of coffee and a lot of nootropics, I hadn't yet reviewed a product that was a combination of the two.
I brewed Noocaf using the plunger method and to my surprise, it tasted like typical dark roasted coffee. I couldn't detect any of the nootropic ingredients even as an aftertaste.
I always drink my coffee with a little milk and Noocaf was easy to drink and enjoyable.
Noocaf's Focus blend contains coffee beans sourced from South America along with six nootropic ingredients listed as follows:
- L-Theanine (200mg)
- L-Tyrosine (400mg)
- Vitamin B6 (20mg)
- Vitamin B12 (0.06mg)
- Alpha GPC (300mg)
- Taurine (500mg)
The aim of this product is to produce increased productivity, enhanced concentration, but with a feeling of focused calm.
I definitely felt more alert after drinking a cup of Noocaf and it wasn't jittery alertness like sometimes coffee can induce and I did feel fairly calm. I'm not sure that I was less distracted than I typically am during my work.
What's difficult to assess with nootropics is their long-term effect. Caffeine kicks in rather quickly, but other ingredients may take a bit longer to induce an effect. And, some of the effects are cumulative, meaning you have to consume the ingredients for a week before you would experience the benefit.
Overall, I like the concept of Noocaf and their attempt at giving coffee fans a little something more than regular coffee has to offer. It's a good tasting coffee, but with some enhancement.
