We’re passionate about changing the way people energize. Coffee is wonderful. And, it’s an external source of energy that can be taxing to your adrenals and nervous system in the long run.

How It All Started

It was late 2015. My first son was 4 months old, and the sleepless nights were wearing me thin. I was desperate for a solution, but knew that coffee hurt my belly, made me feel acidic, AND contributed to anxiety and sleeplessness.

I searched for something that would help me cope with the stress of motherhood and life, while nourishing my body. I tried every coffee alternative. I could get my hands on, but nothing hit the spot. Some coffee alternatives were healthy, but tasted gross.

  • Some had cacao, which actually has caffeine. I wanted a fully caffeine-free option.
  • Some were caffeine-free, but had “natural flavors.” No thanks.
  • And some tasted good and were caffeine free, but weren't packed with the health benefits I was seeking.

The Best Coffee Alternative...

  • provides energy without caffeine
  • is jam-packed with
    health benefits
  • tastes GREAT

I knew we could do WAY better than this, and decided to create a delicious coffee alternative.

A herbalist friend of mine and I got together and crafted a dark, rich, and roasty coffee alternative, loaded with adaptogens. We tested it on some coffee-lovers at a Thanksgiving dinner—they were in love! And so Rasa Koffee was born.

What Gets Us Up in the Morning
Well, besides the Rasa, that sure helps!
At Rasa, there are three main cylinders in our engine:

1. Adaptogens

We believe adaptogens are Nature’s antidote to the stressors of modern life. It’s no wonder they’re trending—adaptogens are exactly what most of us need! We’re committed to sharing these incredible herbs with the world in the most accessible way possible.

2. Energizing from within

We believe in energizing from within. Coffee is one of the world’s most consumed beverages, but it also provides an external source of energy that can actually drain you over time. We’re disrupting one of the world’s favorite pastimes and offering the healthiest alternative that we can possibly create.

3. Sustainability

We operate every aspect of our business in the most sustainable, honest, transparent, conscious, high-integrity way we can. We want to do well by you, our planet, the herbs we use, the workers who harvest them, and each other. That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?

Our Herbs

All of our herbs are certified organic, tested for heavy metals, and never treated with sulfites (as many Chinese herbs are).

We are committed to continuously improving our supply chain in the following 3 areas:

  • Quality
  • Sustainability
  • Human rights

We are grateful to have our resident herb nerd, Ben LeVine (former sourcing wizard at Celestial Seasonings), on our team to continue to optimize in these three areas, increase our supply-chain transparency, and to look into long-term sustainability issues around rhodiola, eleuthero, and Rasa's other ingredients.

Let’s Talk About Chaga

Chaga is a magical mushroom (no, not that kind), that is becoming increasingly popular for its immune-boosting properties.

However, there’s concern about whether chaga is overharvested. There’s a fair amount of debate about it, and after much research we see that both sides have valid points. Our point is—if there is a concern, why not err on the side of conservative?

That’s why we have switched to using only sustainably harvested chaga mycelium. You'll still receive the vast majority of the benefits offered by wildcrafted chaga (including, actually, higher amounts of 1,3 and 1,6 beta-glucans), but without the long-term environmental toll.

Compostable Packaging

Our 1 oz bags are currently 100% compostable.

We wish this was the industry standard, but the truth is it's not, and so it’s up to some of us to lead the industry there. We've worked hard to create compostable packaging that won't end up in a landfill or the ocean.

As of November 2018, all of our packaging will be 100% compostable. Our current 8 oz packaging is 60% compostable/40% biodegradable. That means that 60% will compost in a few months, and 40% will break down in a few years’ time. We printed off a ton of these bags and a few months later found a 100% compostable option, so we are making the switch as fast as we can!

Adaptogens

Adapto-whats?

Adaptogens are Nature’s antidote to stress. These herbs live in harsh conditions around the world, meaning they have not only learned how to be resilient in the face of stress but these badass mofos actually thrive in stressful environments.

To be characterized as as adaptogen, an herb must meet these 3 criteria:

  • It must be safe in normal therapeutic doses
  • It must help your body holistically resist a wide variety of stressors
  • It must have a normalizing effect on overall body function, helping your body to maintain homeostasis (read: balance, baby!)
Adaptogens & Stress Response

Stress Resilience

Adaptogens help you to freak out slower (& less intensely!), and recover faster in response to stress…all while increasing stress resilience overall.

These amazing superherbs work through both your hormonal and nervous systems to help your body cope with stress more effectively. This “multiple-pathway action” is known as “network pharmacology,” and is the opposite of pharmaceutical drugs, which are “one drug, one action.”
