At Peak Yogurt, we’re obsessed with cream from organic pasture-based cows and believe it’s one of nature’s true superfoods. We love its clean-burning energy, incredible vitamin and nutrient content, and rich silky texture. We’re also adamant about limiting added sugar in our own foods. These two values led to the creation of Peak Triple Cream Yogurt: the first and only true Triple Cream yogurt, made with 17% milkfat, a unique 3:1 ratio of fat to protein, and super low added sugar.
We are a small group of people who really like the idea of spreading joy - especially through good coffee. What we do is not complicated. We purchase high-quality green coffee which we then locally roast in small batches. We aren’t trying to be the next hippest and richest coffee company. Our passion and mission is to dig our roots down deep into Oakland, our home! http://www.slojoy.com/
