COVID 19 - Double Rainbow Month ­čîł­čîł

To our red espresso® community,

Our thoughts are with everyone and we hope that you and your loved ones are all safe and well at this time.

The coronavirus is teaching all of us a sense of coming together as a family and as a community, of thinking of others and showing them kindness and compassion. And of showing courage in the face of uncertainty. 

15 years ago, we started our family business with the mission to bring health and wellness into coffee shops and homes around South Africa. Now, during these difficult times, we believe we can make a difference and want to do our part to help our community stay healthy and strong. 

You might not know this, but our award-winning range of deliciously healthy drinks are also known as rainbow drinks for their beautiful colours. They are our rooibos red cappuccino® and red latte®, golden turmeric latte, green tea matcha latte and crimson beetroot and ginger latte. Each one of these drinks is made from pure plant-based goodness and has a wide range of health benefits that can boost your immune system and help to prevent infection.

WeÔÇÖve been brainstorming ways to make a positive impact locally and the beautiful double rainbow that appeared this morning outside our homes in Manhattan Beach, California, inspired us to find an answer.

Our┬áonline shop is open and we are processing and delivering online orders during lockdown.┬áWeÔÇÖre starting a Buy One, Give One movement of all of our rainbow drinks. For every rainbow drink bag or box sold, we will give a free bag to a local resident in the South Bay area who is part of the high risk group*.┬áSimply place your order on our┬áonline shop.

Stay safe. Stay healthy.
