Our Story

As an avid runner and skier, I've enjoyed the benefits of drinking coffee before I exercised. I love the alertness, the boost in energy and endurance.  

I have just one problem - the occasional upset stomach. I've even tried cold brew coffee which is known to be 60% less acidic than a hot cup of coffee. But nothing worked. So I began to experiment. 

When life gives you lemons make lemonade and add it to your coffee. Lemons are filled with antioxidants, promote hydration and balance your bodies pH. So I started combining my two favorite beverages - coffee and lemonade. 

With a bit of trial and error, I balanced the beverage with Himalayan pink salt, monk fruit and carbonation. The taste was refreshing, filled with caffeine, electrolytes and full of flavor and aroma. Best of all, my upset stomach was gone. I called the beverage Upruit (pronounced 'uproot'), a combination of 'wake up' and 'fruit', because it took a bit of tearing away from the norm and experiencing something new. It is a beautiful synergy of fruit and coffee. 

Upruit Sparkling Coffee has become my new go-to when I need caffeine whether on the track or at the office. Please give Upruit a try whenever you need coffee with added benefits. I hope you'll love it as much as I do.
