High Brew Coffee was born from the adventure of a lifetime. Two boot-strapping entrepreneurs sold their company they spent 13 years building and sailed the high seas. Their need to stay alert through warm nights on rough waters brought them to cold-brewed coffee and they realized another great idea was in the works: an ice-cold, premium coffee that is convenient and portable.
We’re a fair trade, ready-to-drink, cold brew coffee for those who do. 100% All Natural ready-to-drink Cold-Brewed coffee born in Austin, Texas. Made from 100% Certified Fair Trade Arabica Beans. Better Not Bitter™.
Pioneers shatter expectations, widen boundaries, and reveal new possibilities in life.
Whether the work was inspired from being on a ship or inside of a studio, pioneers act on their internal, immutable desires to create work that matters.
You might be on the edge of pioneering something new; only time and your relentless drive to create against all odds will determine that. We look towards pioneers to bring us to new discoveries, domains, and knowledge about ourselves.
We’re looking at you.
This month’s global exploration of Pioneer is chosen by our Denver chapter, illustrated by John Vogl, and presented by MailChimp.
