Meet the Family

It all started in our little
brother's dorm room...

As a collegiate student-athlete, Jordan was tired.  His campus store offered energy products with empty caffeine, excessive sugar and harmful chemicals. He wanted a drink that promised healthy energy and delicious flavor from organic, natural ingredients.

Not one to settle, Jordan turned his dorm room into a culinary kitchen and got to work! Determined to solve his energy crisis, he consciously blended organic Colombian coffee with grass fed milk protein, and healthy fats from coconut oil to create an unparalleled source of focused energy.


Every Sunday, he brewed enough Super Coffee to get him through the week, but soon, everyone from his coaches to the girls across the hall, were buying his dorm room brew faster than he could make it! That’s when he called his older brothers, Jimmy and Jake, and said, “Guys, we gotta bottle this stuff!"

We teamed up to bring our non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Lactose-Free, Soy-Free, Low-Calorie, no added sugar, zero-artificial-ingredient Super Coffee to the halls of your campus and the shelves of your local grocery store.  What started out as one kid’s energy remedy ended up fueling the whole team, the whole campus and now, Whole Foods. From the classroom to the conference room, Sunniva is here to power your passions.  

Cheers to a healthy, productive life!

Jordan, Jake and Jimmy
