To call my husband a “coffee lover” would be an understatement. He’s never met a coffee shop he didn’t like and he’s never met a cup of Kona Blend he didn’t love. He’s also a fan of iced coffee (mainly after noon, when he tried to avoid hot coffee). So, when he found out that we were asked to try out some SToK™ Cold-Brew Iced Coffee, he was pretty excited.

SToK™ — pronounced like “stoked,” as in “My husband was stoked to try this new iced coffee!” – is an iced coffee that’s cold brewed, slow brewed, and strong enough to fuel whatever creative fires you might need to keep burning. It’s available in Mocha, Vanilla and Black flavors in 13.7-ounch and 48-ounce containers. I picked mine up at Walmart.

You can find it in the chilled juices aisle.

My husband is creative for a living. He works in a busy advertising agency where his job is to come up with all sorts of fun and creative ideas for campaigns for his clients. Sparking that creativity often requires a jolt (or two) of caffeine.

When he’s not working on ad campaigns, one of my husband’s favorite hobbies is a GPS-guided treasure hunt called GeoCaching.

He embarks on local adventures with friends and family all the time. The GPS guides him to within 10 feet or so of a well-hidden treasure, which can be as large as a shoebox or as small as a pencil eraser.  There are literally thousands of geocaches hidden in our neighborhood (and likely yours).

As you can imagine, all of that treasure hunting requires energy, which is why he happily packed some SToK™ iced coffee on his latest geocaching journey.

He was super geeked out about having some iced coffee with him as he trekked through the woods. After all, geocaching can require lots of hiking and climbing, so the slow-brewed jolt of energy from the SToK™ was a welcome addition to his weekend excursion.

So, what does it take to be a “world class” geocacher like my hubby? Here’s a short tutorial from Mr. Adventure himself.

10 Things You Need to Pack For Your Own Awesome Geocaching Adventure

  1. A bag or backpack (Because you can’t pack a bag without a bag, right?)
  2. A GPS (You can’t geocache without a GPS. If you’ve got a smartphone, you’ve got a GPS.)
  3. A flashlight (You might find yourself in some pretty dark places.)
  4. A snack (Granola bar, trail mix, leftover chicken parm — geocaching makes you hungry.)
  5. A small first aid kit (It’s not too dangerous, but you might fall down and skin your knee.)
  6. Bug spray (Depending upon the season, the skeeters can get pretty bad.)
  7. Sunscreen (My wife makes me take this, but I don’t use it. Don’t tell her that, though. Oh, wait.)
  8. More snacks (This is mainly a me thing. I get hungry a lot.)
  9. A pen (You’ll need this to sign the log book in each cache.)
  10. A good drink (Need a suggestion? SToK iced coffee is my new geocaching drink of choice.)

By the way, did I mention that SToK™ is brewed slow and low to make your mind (and body) go? It’s also pure coffee, made with Arabica beans from Brazil and no weird, hard-to-pronounce ingredients.

Check out the SToK™ website for more information about the iced coffee that’s so strong it’ll wake your dreams up.
