“Once we discovered the power of adaptogens, tonic herbs and superfoods, there was no going back!” Amy & Emily, Co-Founders
We wanted to share how they influenced our lives with everyone. They minimized our stress, boosted our energy levels, soothed our inflammation and helped us relax. They brought our bodies back to a state we hadn't felt in a long time - relaxed, calm, focused and motivated.
We wanted others to experience what we had. We wanted others to be able to consume them as we were - in a delicious, enjoyable way.
We were drinking adaptogenic lattes everyday, and we realized the process to make the lattes was time consuming. We added the hot water and milk (coconut or almond milk), added teaspoons of adaptogens, added tocos, and then added either matcha, turmeric and cacao. We'd then blend the concoction in the Vitamix. The result was a delicous, creamy latte, but this process took time and was messy.
We started making big batches of the adaptogens, the tocos, the matcha, turmeric or cacao so all we would have to do in the morning was get a few tablespoons of the mix and add that to hot water and non-dairy mix. This saved a lot of time.
We started traveling around with these blends so we could have an adaptogenic latte on the airplane or a latte in the hotel room or cafe.
People kept asking us about the blends and if they could buy some. We realized there was a need for a quick way to make delicious, stress-relieving, energizing lattes.
Through our adaptogenic latte blends, we hope to show people that decreasing stress, increasing energy and decreasing inflammation doesn't have to be hard or unpleasurable. Adaptogens are powerful plants and herbs that can bring the body back to balance and help people function at optimal levels. Our goal is to spread the adaptogen message and help people live happier lives.

Certified health coach with The Institute for Integrative Nutrition
Emily is a raw-food, plant-based chef who believes strongly in eating with the seasons. When it’s cold outside, I feel our bodies deserve warming, cooked foods that heat us up and nourish our souls. In the summer months, I am all about raw foods – lots of smoothies, salads, and cold soups – that keep us feeling light and energetic when the sun is beating down. I long to get people excited about food and its powerful healing abilities. I believe above anything else that food is medicine; that we can drastically alter the state of our health by discovering foods that revitalize and nurture our system.
