upcycling cascara superfruit

In the heart of our innovation lies the Cascara Superfruit, a testament to our commitment to sustainability and health. Each year, the coffee industry faces a staggering reality: approximately 58 billion pounds of Cascara, the outer husk of the coffee cherry, are discarded, leading to about 14.2 million metric tons of CO2 emissions, akin to the pollution from 3 million cars according to a recent study "Solving Coffee’s Not So Dirty Little Secret,” RIFF Coffee + Oregon State University. 

Recognizing the potential of this underused resource, we are pioneering the use of Cascara Superfruit in our new energy drink, turning what was once waste into a vital, energy-boosting ingredient.

our mission 

Our mission is twofold: to provide a naturally invigorating beverage and to address the environmental impact of coffee production waste. By upcycling Cascara Superfruit, we not only harness its rich antioxidants and natural caffeine but also contribute to a significant reduction in agricultural waste and greenhouse gas emissions. This approach embodies our vision of offering products that are not just beneficial for our consumers but also kind to the planet.

The journey of Cascara Superfruit from waste to wonder is a story of transformation. This humble husk, often overlooked, is packed with health benefits, from its energizing properties to its antioxidant richness. Our energy drink, infused with the goodness of Cascara Superfruit, offers a refreshing and guilt-free boost to your day, perfect for outdoor enthusiasts and anyone seeking a sustainable alternative in their energy drink choice.
