We do things differently

In 2016, we combined all of our wants and needs, making drinks and snacks we would be happy to consume and proud to produce.

REASON No. 1
 

Sustainability

Environment
First

What can we do to make our environment a better place? We asked ourselves that before we had an idea or a company. Inspired by that question we set out to make products using underutilized crops, or food waste. After too many cups of coffee and a healthy curiosity, we realized that the coffee fruit is one of the most sustainable crops in the world.  Billions of pounds are grown and discarded each year, yet it’s a delicious and healthy fruit. Once we had that, we sought to further our commitment to sustainability.

How can we further reduce carbon emissions? What agronomic practices are our partners engaging in? Can they be improved? What packaging material would have the lowest environmental impact? What about labels? How could we reduce fuel used in transportation?  We take sustainability seriously.

 

REASON No. 2
 

Ethics

Fairness First

We're all about fairness. We only want to profit if it comes with purpose. We trade direct, in a transparent way. We listen to others, to learn from and understand them. We spent months on the ground in Latin America, seeking out farmers we’re proud to call partners. We pay a good price for something that previously had no use. We work with small, family run businesses that are integral to their communities.

It is our goal to enable our partners to create better lives for themselves and those around them. Whether that be clean water, reliable electricity, or better access to schools, it’s important to us that we have a positive impact. 

REASON No. 3
 

Health

Life In Motion

We’re always on the move.  Getting up at the crack of dawn to run the Brooklyn Bridge, lay first tracks, or summit the biggest hills in the Northeast is what excites us. We’re careful about what we consume. We want drinks for our lifestyle. Full of antioxidants, a bit of caffeine and sans processed sweeteners, our cascara is perfect for life in motion.
