Add an Extra-Local Boost to Your Next Coffee Order With These 5 Austin-Based Products
These local brands are on a mission to make your morning even better
Getting a caffeine boost while supporting your local community is a win-win. Even better, many Austin coffee shops also carry and support other local food and product brands. Next time you get a drink at your local cafe, check out one of these brands for an extra-local boost.
Good Wolf Provisions
Good Wolf Provisions: Founded by two Austin-based athletes who wanted more out of their minds and bodies, Good Wolf Provisions’ foundational product is called Dawn Patrol, an adaptogenic blend that adds a delightful boost of superfoods (including beet root powder and ashwagandha) to your favorite coffee drink. It’s offered as an add-on in coffee shops around town, including Flat Track Coffee, Cosmic, Radio, Try Hard Coffee, Mañana, Nomadic Outpost, and Proud Mary. You’ll also find the Good Wolf team at local cycling and running events, handing out spiked coffee to energy-hungry participants. “It’s been awesome seeing Austinites add a dose of mindfulness in the form of Dawn Patrol to their daily caffeine routine,” says co-founder Ian Myers. “We’re incredibly grateful for the support we’ve been shown.”
Rosen’s Bagel Co.
Rosen’s Bagel Co: What’s more classic than a bagel with your coffee? Founded by Tom Rosen in 2017, Rosen’s takes traditional bagel-making very seriously. Each bagel starts with creating a sponge, like a sourdough starter, two days before the bagels are baked. The meticulous process and high-quality ingredients result in everything you’d want from a bagel, so they’re sold in over 20 coffee shops and restaurants around town — including Jo’s Coffee, Traianon Coffee, Alta’s Cafe, Patika, and Brew & Brew.
Earlybird CBD: Sometimes, you need a different kind of morning boost. Earlybird CBD is a recreational hemp company that makes gummies with a consistent microdose of THC. Their full-spectrum hemp edibles aim to deliver a consistent, relaxing experience and put a smile on your face. Lucky for us Austinites, we can pick them up in many hot spots around town, including Brew & Brew. Mour Cafe, Little Brother on South Congress, Ani’s Day and Night, Cosmic Coffee, and Fairweather Cider.
Sightseer: Co-founders and coffee-industry veterans Kimberly Zash and Sara Gibson started Sightseer to offer high-quality coffee that directly supports gender equity in the coffee industry. Women farm, source, and roast all of their coffees. They prioritize sustainability when choosing their supply chain partners and packaging. Find their beans at Dear Diary Coffee, Tiny Grocer, Dwell House Coffee and Tap, Zucchini Kill Bakery, Sugar Mama’s, and Lakeline Farmers’ Market.
Curcuma Kitchen: Curcuma’s Kitchen Golden Turmer powder was created by Rachel Musquiz when she sought a higher quality alternative to other golden milk powders. This ayurvedic blend includes heirloom turmeric, MCT oil powder, and ginger. It’s a delicious coffee alternative if you limit caffeine or anti-inflammatory addition to caffeinated lattes. You can add it to your drink at many local coffee shops around town (some even offer whole jars for purchase!). Find at Proud Mary, Cuvee, Easy Tiger South Lamar, Flitch Coffee, and The Meteor.
