Lose weight and get slim a cup of coffee at a time. Could life really be that easy? The Javita Burn Coffee Company appears to think it can, but in all fairness their coffee has little in common with a bog-standard cup of joe—other than the coffee beans of course.
Javita Burn + Control is made from two different types of coffee bean and the blend is then enhanced by the addition of a couple of other ingredients, including extracts of the superfruit garcinia cambogia.
Advertised benefits of Javita Burn + Control

Due to their shape, the sachets are called sticks and each (4g) “stick” provides unspecified quantities of the following ingredients:
- South American Estate-Blend Coffee (100% Arabica and Robusta): Arabica and Robusta are both popular types of coffee bean and can be found in any number of instant coffee blends. Bearing in mind the ratios involved are unknown it is hard to say how much caffeine the coffee content will provide, but 100-150mg is not an unrealistic ballpark figure. Caffeine related benefits include boosted energy levels and improved concentration. Some studies also show caffeine can assist weight loss by dulling the appetite and speeding up the metabolism enough to cause calories to be burned faster than normal.
- Yerba Mate Extract: In certain parts of the world yerba mate is a popular beverage in its own right and it is known to be a good source of health-enhancing flavonoids and antioxidants. It also provides caffeine, but is a less potent caffeine supplier than the coffee bean. Numerous studies prove that yerba mate can be effective for weight loss. The weight-reducing powers of Yerba mate are generally attributed to the mix of methylxanthines and polyphenols it provides. Benefits include appetite suppression, boosted metabolism, suppressed growth of adipose (fat) tissue, decreased deposition of fats in adipocytes.
- Garcinia Cambogia Extract: A very popular weight loss-providing ingredient with an outstanding reputation for delivering results, but if it is hindered here by a low inclusion rate results will not be forthcoming. Garcinia cambogia contains high levels of hydroxycitric acid. This assists weight loss in two ways—it suppresses the appetite (lowers the calorie intake) and it restricts the body’s ability to convert excess carbohydrate into fat.
In theory the ingredients used in Javita Burn + Control should be able to provide the kind of weight loss benefits Javita promises, but in practice the blend may fail to live up to the hype. All of the ingredients have potential, so some level of weight loss is likely, but if the ratio of coffee is too high the other ingredients will be hindered.
Javita Burn Side Effects
Javita Burn + Control is primarily a caffeine-powered weight loss blend so side effects are certainly a possibility, but the range and severity of any that are experienced will depend on individual tolerance rates. Many people can enjoy quite high doses of caffeine and experience no side effects at all, but those who are less fortunate may experience one or more of a number of side effects that may include, but are not limited to: jitters, nausea, heart palpitations, restlessness, irritability, stomach problems, and dizziness.
Javita Burn Customer Feedback
Customer feedback is mixed. Some love it, others hate it, and many complain about side effects.
Purchasing Options & Considerations
The Javita Coffee Company distributes its products via a multi-level marketing scheme, but it also has an Amazon store. This means Javita distributors will be selling in direct competition to the company that supplies them, a fact that will likely make it extremely difficult for them to make a go of the “Javita opportunity”. Prices can vary, but Amazon customers can expect to pay around USD$ 28 for a box of 24 coffee sachets.

The obvious standout ingredient is Garcinia Cambogia. We feel that Garcinia Cambogia is best advised taken in supplement form and of a certain dosage.
Garcinia Cambogia Extra contains the correct Garcinia dosage (as well as the correct daily dosage of Raspberry ketone).
