About Us

Hello! I’m Dr Charles Livingston, CEO of Lifeboost Coffee.

I sat down one afternoon with a cup of coffee and as I sat there, I started to think of all the reasons why 80% of the population indulge in some form of this wonderful beverage.

  • 1 I started with myself. Why do I drink coffee?
  • 2 When I wake up, I drink coffee as a morning ritual. I start out giving gratitude, doing affirmations and planning out my day.
  • 3 Being a chiropractor, I drink coffee for the health benefits.
  • 4 Being a business owner, a father, and an adoring husband to a beautiful wife, I drink coffee for energy and focus.
  • 5 When I meet up with friends or business colleagues, I drink coffee for conversation.
A Place of Focus
A Place of Focus A Place of Focus

When I drink coffee, it transports me to another place of thinking.

A place of focus. And starts the process of gaining clarity to work out problems that I face during the day or week. My focus increases. My mood changes, I engage with others and exchange ideas over this little cup of deliciousness. It still amazes me that coffee can do all of this!

An Experience Born An Experience Born

I’ve come to realize that I’m on a never ending quest to be a better person than I was yesterday. I choose to start each day on a positive note because that makes your entire day better (And it makes you much more pleasant to be around).

I began thinking to myself… wow, if coffee is this vital in my daily life and 80% of the population drinks it for similar reasons, then why not create a company that gives an amazing, positive experience? Why not create a coffee that provides all of the benefits with none of the pesticides or poisons, that tastes great and make the company in such a way that our mission is to help you be better than you were yesterday?

Lifeboost Coffee was born.

An Experience Born
We Love Coffee
We Love Coffee We Love Coffee

When I drink coffee, it transports me to another place of thinking.

We scoured the world to find the best, fairly traded coffee grown in a nationally protected area by people who hand pick and spring water wash only the best beans from the crop. This small planation lies in the mountains at an elevation of 5700 feet in the covering of guava trees. It is here, the secret to Lifeboost coffee lies.

As soon as I tasted this coffee, I fell in love. I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that this was the coffee bean that I wanted to represent Lifeboost.

We Love Ourselves We Love Ourselves

We Love Being Our Best Version Of Ourselves.

We believe starting your day off on a positive note will make or break your day. Every day should start with a ritual. You are constantly bombarded with negative messages throughout the day. Why start out that way?

Here’s how we start:

We Love Ourselves
Delicious Cup of Coffee
Delicious Cup of Coffee Delicious Cup of Coffee

It is starting our day with a delicious cup of coffee, gratitude, and affirmations. This is how we motivate ourselves to be the best person we can be and never stop being better than the day before.

That is what Lifeboost Coffee stands for. Starting your day off right so that you can be the best you possible. Your coffee is the cornerstone of a daily ritual that will ELEVATE you to be your best today. It will ENERGIZE your body and give you that oomph to get moving so that you can EXCEL.

A Big Help to my Family

I am happy to do business with Dr. Livingston. Because of Dr. Livingston, I get paid more than what I would receive in the normal marketplace. This allows me to afford a good education for my children.


Flowering Season

I planted this coffee plant a year ago with the profits I have made from the sale of coffee to Dr Livingston. It is flowering now and smells wonderful! I hope to have a good harvest when time comes and be able to offer Dr. Livingston and his customers a great cup of coffee.



Why Buy From Us?

Individual hand selection

Individual hand selection

Your cup of Lifeboost Premium Coffee comes from coffee beans that have been individually hand selected as the premium bean(s) of a harvest. Your coffee beans are lovingly cultivated by local farmers, after being grown slowly to full maturity in mountain shade.

Your beans are hand-picked — one at a time to provide the highest in Gourmet blends — and then fermented for 26 hours so the skin can be carefully removed without damaging the seed. No pesticides are ever used.

Next, your beans are spring water washed, then slowly sun-dried until they have the perfect humidity content of 11.5%. Finally, your beans transition into a 30-day “rest” period, which allows the beans to slowly complete their taste-enhancing richness. You literally are getting the “cream of the crop” in layman’s terms.

The Lifeboost Premium Coffee coffee beans have been recognized worldwide through competitions, where it has been chosen as the “World’s Premier Cup” and consumed by country’s Presidents and leaders and on an international level. Lifeboost Premium Coffee Coffee is the preferred coffee of many and has risen to The Winners Circle.
The problem of many coffees is that they contain mycotoxins

The problem of many coffees is that they contain mycotoxins

Mycotoxins are a metabolite that is produced by molds which are detrimental to your health. They can cause a wide range of health problems like cardiomyopathy, hypertension, cancer, and kidney disease. One study found that 91.7% of the coffee beans were contaminated with mold before they were processed. One other study showed that 52% of green coffee beans and about 50% of brewed coffees are moldy.

Mycotoxins are commonly found in low quality coffee. This is because companies use lower quality beans that have higher concentrations of mold and they use processing techniques to add flavor that increase the amounts of mold.
Most coffees are blended beans

Most coffees are blended beans

Blends of coffee are bad because they incorporate beans from different areas in the blend which increases the chances that there will be moldy beans. I want to make clear that, plain and simple, blending high quality beans with low quality beans is done to make a bag of coffee more profitable. It’s an easy way to make a cheap bag of coffee into a much more expensive bag simply by adding 10-20% of high quality beans.

If the fillers are very low quality beans, the fine aroma of the original beans is overtaken by the imperfections of the low end fillers. That is when your brand name coffee needs to be sprayed with chemically produced coffee aroma in order to be appealing.

Also, coffee this bad will generate a harsh feeling in your throat and will leave a lingering bad aftertaste that ranges between bitter and metallic. Generally, makers of this coffee will resort to a very dark roast in order to create the perception of "richness" in the cup while narrowing the range of aroma & flavor and hiding the low quality.

What we do to avoid mycotoxins in our coffee:

  • Our coffee is prepared using a wet and a dry process with a slight variation to avoid any mycotoxins.
  • The coffee is first washed in pure, spring mountain water, but we do not allow the coffee beans to ferment, as is usually done during the wet process. In order to avoid the generation of mycotoxins we employ a hybrid of sorts referred to as the mechanical process (or forced demicuilage) with no fermentation.
    • A sub point of this is that a large amount of the reason why mycotoxins occur is because of poor quality control of the water tanks and water sources.
  • The coffee is grown at over a mile in altitude (5,700 ft +), greatly reducing the ability for the fungi/molds that create mycotoxins to even occur.
  • The coffee comes from a single origin meaning the chance of mycotoxic contamination from other sources is eliminated.
  • After the coffee has been washed, beans are pulpled (removed of their outer covering) and let to dry in the sun for a few days serving a double purpose of eliminating any molds and mycotoxins that may have formed while being exposed to the water as well as giving the coffee a "rest period" period before roasting.
  • We have very rigorous health and quality standards; before any batch is to be roasted the coffee is tested in a lab to ensure several factors are in check including; quality, molds, moisture content, consistency, and others.
  • In the final step, coffee is roasted which effectively eliminates all bacteria, fungi, molds and the mycotoxins these may have generated.
  • As a final precaution, each shipment of coffee is tested once again by the The Agriculture Department before it is allowed to leave the country. If the coffee has any mycotoxic presence the shipment is not allowed to leave the country.

"LOCKED DOWN: Cats Write Pandemic Poetry” is a fun book that I wrote in a weekend when I asked myself how our cats are reacting to being locked down with us. Would they become jerks . . . or would they morph into kind kitties just as worried as we are about the state of the world? As one of my book’s reviewers says: “Who knew cats liked to sing duets, had food anxiety dreams, talked to goldfish, rode Roombas, and worried about sanitizing?” In poems and photos —some humorous, some touching — cats tell us what being locked down with us is like for them.
