We’re Califia Farms. Based in California, our mission is to bring you the most delicious, good-for-the-world foods by applying creativity and innovation to nature’s bounty, because we believe the world needs a healthier, plant-based food system.
That means all our products are plant-based, as well as dairy-free, soy-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, non-GMO, kosher, vegan, and carrageenan-free. How do we do it? We use passion, insight, and intuition to whip natural ingredients into beverages — like our Almond beverages and Cold Brew Coffees — that make it desirable and delicious to go plant-based.
Led by our CEO and founder, Greg Steltenpohl, who is widely recognised as a beverage visionary, we're focused on making the future more mouthwatering by the minute. “Our mission is to create a healthy, lower-sugar, cleaner energy beverages that taste great. We are very excited to be entering this market and believe that Califia Farms products are a natural fit for discerning Australian coffee consumers who love healthy beverages, but who will not compromise on taste.”
Our Almond beverages are specifically crafted in California, home to about 80% of the world’s total almond supply. Unlike other companies who import roasted almond paste and reconstitute it with water, our Almond beverages are made fresh at the source, starting from raw blanched almonds, to deliver a delicious, ultra-creamy texture.
Our Cold Brew Coffees all begin with a proprietary cold brewing process, which captures many flavour components that “hot brewing” doesn’t catch. The result is a smoother coffee experience, one that’s less acidic and tastier. Our line ranges from Black & White, which has no added sugar, to our XX Espresso, which is lightly sweetened, containing just 3% added sugar. Even our Cocoa Noir contains 40% less sugar per 100ml than Australia’s leading brands of iced coffee.
As a company, we are committed to making beverages that are not only healthier for people but for our planet, too. That’s why sustainability is a core value at Califia Farms. We engage in a range of initiatives to minimise our environmental footprint, from improving packaging materials to using renewable energy, managing water, and developing Direct Trade relationships with coffee farmers. And now, as we begin to expand beyond the U.S., we’re thrilled that shipping by sea is the most carbon efficient form of transport — it allows us to make our products fresh at source in California and share them with the world.
