California-based company, Virus introduced its new line of "StayWarm" clothing that uses the caffeinated morning beverage to create natural insulation.

Over at the California based performance sportswear company Virus, “stepping out for a coffee” has taken on new meaning. The company has unveiled StayWarm, a line of spandex clothes made from coffee beans, which boost the body's temperature by up to ten degrees. A unique proprietary process converts the coffee charcoal (recycled used grounds) into a natural fabric, producing a comfortable base layer fabric that traps heat close to the skin. Best used in conjunction with protective outerwear, your body can feel that warm coffee buzz without taking one sip. What's most compelling to us about these garments is the fact no chemical treatments were used to provide the insulating properties.
