Classic Rasa is robust, roasty, and rich. The dark richness of roasted chicory root, the sweet coffee notes of roasted date seed, and the earthy, nutty flavor of roasted burdock root make up the base of these blends, while the adaptogenic herbs add further roundness, sweetness, and herbal notes. It features six adaptogens: Red Asian Ginseng, Cordyceps, Rhodiola, Gynostemma, Shatavari, and Maca.


Café Rasa blends certified organic and Fair Trade freeze-dried coffee from Chiapas, Mexico with adaptogens that soften the downsides of coffee (less stress, fewer jitters, better sleep), while supplementing the fatigue-fighting abilities of caffeine.

“What this entailed was far more complex than ‘powdering’ our existing Rasa Brew products that our customers have been loving for 5 years. It took us years of development to crack the code on the trifecta of flavor, function, and form. Our process includes brewing the herbs over several hours like a standard decoction—a process used for millennia—then drying it and granulating it to produce a supremely delicious, dissolvable, and bioavailable mix. There’s nothing like it in the industry,” said Chief Herbalist and Co-Founder, Ben LeVine.
