OUR STORY



Drink different. Think different.

I love coffee. So much so that I moved to a city where I knew no one, Chicago, to work on coffee. I was at KraftHeinz, marketing for coffee brands like Maxwell House and McCafe. As a marketer and foodie trying to embrace the brands I worked for, I drank the products daily. I liked them at first, for the quick energy boost and jolt of productivity it (seemingly) gave me. But unfortunately, those feelings were always short lived. With every cup of coffee I'd quickly need another to keep me going. Coffee started causing me to get jittery and anxious, and the acidity would hurt my stomach. It would even mess with my sleep cycle. Pretty soon, I realized this was a real problem. Not just for me, but for tons of coffee drinkers around the world. 


I then wondered why a giant food company like Kraft, having all the resources in the world to do something great, wouldn't delve into creating a healthier coffee product, let along healthier food in general? Well I learned that the truth is, (spoiler alert) they just didn't care about health. They didn't care about creating quality products if the margins weren't high enough. Realizing this, I knew I was in the wrong place. I wanted to be different, better than that. I wanted to create products that actually benefit your health and longevity. So, I quit my job. And once I quit, I got to work. I wanted to create a better coffee than the ones I used to sell. A coffee that would enhance my wellbeing, for both body and mind. One without the early afternoon crash, that wouldn't make me anxious or jittery, or mess with my sleep. I started thinking about how to fix these problems, and it didn't take long for me to learn about medicinal mushrooms, lesser known mushroom species that have been used for thousands years in eastern medicine to help the body and mind deal with stress.


I called my best friend Andrée. I knew she was a health nut and knew all about superfoods and nutrition. I told her my idea and she immediately got on board. We quickly got to experimenting by adding different mushrooms and other superfoods to coffee. Eventually, after months of experimentation, we nailed down a blend that made us feel great. 8 simple ingredients for a beautiful body and mind: Cordyceps for energy. Lion's Mane for focus. Reishi for stress. King Trumpet and Shiitake for immune support. Turkey Tail for gut health. MCT oil for more energy and taste. And finally, coffee.


We began drinking this blend everyday. We were in love. It helped us sleep better, be more focused and in-tune throughout the day. Even increased our endurance in the gym. It honestly felt like a miracle. Like we found health's hidden gem with these mushrooms. It was then that we decided we wanted to share this beautiful blend of coffee and functional mushrooms to you. To help jumpstart your day to live the healthiest lifestyle you can, both physically and mentally.


We decided to call it RYZE, and start RYZE Superfoods. Our concept and logo invokes a sunrise, as well as rising from bed and even rising from the Earth, as mushrooms do. To anyone that is willing to try something new, we can reassure you this. Our Mushroom Coffee is for everyone. We created it to benefit our lifestyles, and now it can benefit yours. So let's RYZE.
