We needed something to brighten our morning after a day without Colorado Rockies spring training baseball. Luckily, Rockies infielder Ryan McMahon gave us just what we needed to start the day with a jolt.
McMahon is a great follow on Instagram and his coffee technique he posted earlier in the week definitely caught our attention. A mix of coffee and chocolate to start the day? We like what we saw, despite it being early in the morning.
Check out Colorado Rockies infielder Ryan McMahon’s coffee hack below.
One thing we noticed is that McMahon tipped his cap in the video to former Rockies catcher Drew Butera (now a non-roster spring training invitee with the Texas Rangers).

Rockies fans have watched McMahon emerge from a rookie with so much potential in 2017 to everyday second baseman in 2019 and 2020. Now they will watch as McMahon continues his evolution, likely taking over as Colorado’s primary third baseman in the wake of the Nolan Arenado trade.
While he may step into the position, McMahon is taking the attitude that he’s going to make it his own.
"“I’m not looking to replace Nolan, because no one can,” McMahon told Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post in this mid-February article. “I mean, he’s going to end up as the best third baseman to ever play the game. So I’m not going to compare myself to Nolan.”"
We know McMahon has the skills to rebound from a tough 2020 that saw him strike out 66 times in 193 plate appearances. In a shortened season, McMahon had little time to work out the kinks that kept him from repeating a 2019 season that saw him hit 24 home runs and drive in 83 runs. He is one of the Rockies batters who will be under the microscope to rebound in 2021 and prove those wrong who see the upcoming Colorado season as a campaign that is already sunk.
For now, let’s just sip a cup of coffee and remember RyMac’s heroics in August of 2018 against the Dodgers at Coors Field.
Now the question becomes this: What do you think of the coffee creation? Is this something you’d try as part of your morning routine? We’re up for trying it soon, but let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
