Don't Want to Wait in Line at Starbucks? Get FORTO Coffee Instead

Forget the vanilla latte—these coffee shots have fewer calories and more caffeine than a Starbucks bev.

We get it: No one wants to wait more than two minutes for a Grande skim latte with a half pump of hazelnut, let alone have their name butchered by the barista, before 9 a.m. But when you need your morning jolt, compromises have to be made—or so you think. That's where FORTO Coffee Shots come in. The line of high-potency, organic coffee shots are shelf-stable for up to a year, travel-friendly, and ready to drink—all you have to do is peel the seal off and swig it back!

How much caffeine do the FORTO Coffee Shots contain?

The two-ounce shots are packed with either 100 milligrams (the equivalent of about one cup of coffee) or 200 milligrams of caffeine coming from Colombian cold brew, so you'll enjoy lasting energy in every sip. Flavors range from the classic Pure Black to the cocoa-infused Hershey's Latte to the seasonal Peppermint Mocha. But besides the coffee-shop-inspired flavors, the best part is that they're crafted with only certified-organic ingredients such as Fair-Trade coffee, creamy whole milk, and a touch of cane sugar. And get this: each shot contains just 35 calories and 7 grams of sugar! That means that if you swap your Tall Nonfat Peppermint Mocha Latte from Starbucks for FORTO's thin-mint-flavored coffee shot, you'll save 205 calories and 33 grams of sugar.

How do FORTO's coffee shots compare to Starbucks lattes?

Too sleepy to wait in line for your usual vanilla latte? FORTO's mildly sweetened version will save you the trip and a boatload of belt-busting macros. Just take a look at the stark comparison below:
