team

our journey begins on a long weekend after a long night with a long walk to a highly rated coffee shop…

 

olivia started her coffee journey by trying to make coffee taste as much like coffee ice cream as possible: cold with lots of milk and sugar. but after years of refining her coffee palette to preferring coffee plain, she tasting her first cold drip in a new orleans coffee shop in february 2019. along with her classmate at harvard business school, jackson, they were on a journey to obtain a decent cold drip device for the home. after giving up on four different cold drip makers,  they decided to bring this cold brewing style to the masses. after two years of working on a device and brewing hundreds and hundreds of batches, we switched gears. using our patent pending cold drip coffee device, we started selling almost ready to drink coffee. 

and now that we’ve built it, we’re so excited for you to try it. for real.
