Your coffee is lying to you.

Coming this fall.

What is Rise?

We created RISE to be better than coffee.

Each scoop has a fraction of the caffeine and 5 powerhouse adaptogens and nootropics that will get you up and going. You’ll get a longer boost of energy without the jitters or crash.

Plus you’ll get natural, clinically-backed benefits like a sharper focus, a better memory, and an increase in mental and physical performance. Because RISE is adaptogenic, the ingredients will continue working long after the last sip.

How do i use Rise?

It’s faster than a coffee maker.

Heat up a cup of water for 60 seconds. Add 1 big tablespoon of RISE. Then, mix, stir, or froth before adding any milk and sweetener to taste. Boom, done.

Better than coffee!

Not too sweet, not too bitter.
RISE combines initial notes of tasty cacao with follow-on notes of cinnamon and subtle chai spice.

Finish with a balanced, smooth aftertaste and enjoy the RISE.

No fillers. No fluff.

Just 9 simple ingredients...


+ Energy
+ Antioxidants

Chicory + Chai spice

+ Energy
+ Prebiotic
+ Immunity

Chai does way more than add amazing flavor. Ingredients like ginger, cinnamon, and black tea have been studied to boost energy, protect your brain power as you age, and improve daily digestion. No more trips to the bathroom after your morning cup.

Ashwagandha extract

If you're not taking Lion's Mane, you're late to the game. This mushroom is the go-to superfood for all things brainpower. And we're talking everything from long term memory to brain cell repair to ADHD improvements - just to name a few.

Reishi extract

+ Heart health

Reishi doesn't tend to get the spotlight, but it should. Behind the scenes, it's huge for immunity, anti-fatigue, and long term health. We added it to make sure you're feeling your best, even after your last sip. And it's way tastier than Vitamin C pills.

Schisandra extract

+ Mental performance
+ Physical performance
+ Hangover prevention

Meet the first ever adaptogen. It's not the most famous today, but it caught the eye of scientists back in 1947. Why? Because it's a natural-born performance player that ups your game [bonus: it's going to save you after a night of drinking].

This is our favorite amino acid of all time. It's been specifically tested with caffeine to reduce jitters while promoting a relaxed state of alertness. That means you'll be able to focus without feeling wired. You'll also feel way less stressed about that one email.

“The taste is perfect. Not overpowering. It’s smooth, light, it's amazing.”

YouR coffee isn't what
You thinK it is...

We used to think we needed coffee to be at our best, too. We were wrong.

We're a group of friends and former college teammates who went on to careers that forced us to be on our A-games, all the time. Olympic hopefuls spending hours in the gym. Analysts pulling 100 hour work weeks. And all of us relied on coffee to keep us going...

We were buying cup after cup to fuel our performance, and when the energy levels died down, we’d reach for another.


Sound familiar?


It was expensive, it wasn’t paying off, and it left us jittery. And what's worse is that two of us have heart conditions that make drinking caffeine downright dangerous.

You’re probably thinking, “Then why the hell were you drinking so much coffee?” To be honest, we knew it wasn’t good for us, but we felt like it was the only option.

We realized we all need something better and that’s why we created RISE.

It’s better than coffee.
