Company Spotlight: Lucky Jack Organic Iced Coffees



Organic cold brew coffee made with purified water, 100% organic Arabica beans, all organic ingredients.

We’ve discovered the method for infusing nitrogen in our coffees making Lucky Jack the very first bottled cold brew coffee to pour with a head of foamy and silky smooth nitrogen bubbles.


Why Organic

The term “organic” is popping up more and more these days. But what does “organic” really mean? For coffee beans “organic” means the beans are grown and processed without the use of pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers. This is significant when you consider that coffee is one of the three most chemically treated agricultural crops in the world.

Organic means great care is needed to raise coffee crops by using well proven methods of clean agriculture, biodiversity, soil maintenance and crop rotation, instead of chemicals.

Organic means the people who work every day to bring you your cup of coffee from this miraculous crop can do so year after year without sacrificing their own future quality of life.



In 1990 Richard Karno opened the Novel Café, a rare book emporium and coffeehouse in Santa Monica, California. Recognizing the rapidly changing world of both books and coffee in the 1990s, Karno began searching for a coffee roasting system and soon found himself in the Oregon woods trading barbs with a cranky septuagenarian chemical engineer and probable genius, Michael Sivetz, who built near mythical coffee roasters in a converted church located on the main street of tiny Corvallis. Soon Karno was roasting his own organic coffee beans in a Sivetz fluid bed roaster and by 1992, his company, Gourmet Coffee Warehouse was supplying coffeehouses, supermarkets and specialty shops throughout Southern California with certified organic coffees. His was the first and largest certified organic coffee roaster in LA and Karno’s retail stores, operating under the name Groundwork, became synonymous with quality and community outreach.

In 2013, Karno sold Groundwork to focus on developing an innovative line of cold brew coffees, espresso extracts and gourmet coffee concentrates. As a believer in expediency and challenges, Karno decided to locate his production facility in the Nevada desert because, what better place to make and sell cold brew coffee than in the desert.

Today, Karno’s new brands include Lucky Jack Iced Coffees™, the first nitrogenated cold brew iced coffees available in bottles (they’re organic too) and Lucky Jack Slow Brew™ organic coffee extract for fast, easy to make coffee (hot or cold), shakes, smoothies, anywhere you want to add a shot of coffee.

no artificial flavors.

no synthetics.

Regular chewing gum is packed with artificial substances that are potentially toxic,
including plastic, aspartame, and BHT. Because we only use natural ingredients, our gum
is not only better for your body, it's also biodegradable and better for the planet





About the Company
We set out to make a better chew

The regular chewing gum you see on grocery store shelves is filled with artificial substances, including some of the same components used in the manufacture of car tires, plastic bottles, and white glue, as well as artificial sweeteners like aspartame.

Consumers are kept in the dark about what they are chewing because the FDA allows conventional gum brands to hide up to 80 synthetic ingredients in the catch-all term "gum base" on the label.

Although there are a few gum brands in the US market claiming to be "natural," all of them include synthetics in their base.

We knew we could do better

Packaging Spotlight: Numero Uno Coffee



The smell of freshly roasting coffee filled the street as customers and staff buzzed around the place like worker bees and brought the surrounding industrial area to life, a beautiful sensory overload.






These guys were kicking goals with their amazing coffee but their identity didn't show any of the soul and passion that they put into their work everyday.

We popped our heads in for a cup of coffee, and pretty soon we went to work on capturing the essence of their company.



As we watched them go about their craft, roasting, blending & bagging their beans in the humble workshop, we chatted further. What we found interesting was how they combine their two loves, jamming as a band while the beans roasted & cooled. This became our inspiration…









The new identity reflects their craft and passion, and captures the sensorial experience of Numero Uno coffee – it flows like a musical note, tumbling beans, the aroma of coffee, the swirl of milk. For the packaging we delivered a cost effective solution by printing branded matte white bags and a variety of blend stickers printed in small batches to allow the guys the flexibility to experiment with new blends, limited edition and single origin roasts.

The branding even works upside down!



“I’ve always seen my coffee journey like a love affair – the more I become involved, the more addictive and dynamic it becomes.”

— Gina Di Brita, Founder,
Numero Uno Artisan Coffee Roasters

Drink Spotlight: Stumptown Coconut Cold Brew Coffee


We start with the highest quality coffee, cold brew it without heat for over 12 hours, then use a double filtration process to procure the end result: a complex, smooth and full-bodied brew with low-acid and a chocolate finish. Feelings of invincibility and euphoria are likely to follow.


You don't do dairy. Say no more. We've mixed our life-affirming Cold Brew with the finest coconut cream from Sumatra, Indonesia for a dairy-free, vegan game changer. Coconut Cold Brew is made with three natural ingredients so separation is bound to happen. For a good time, shake it like you mean it.


About the Company
Hang around Stumptown long enough, and you’ll soon see what we’re all about. You might get a sense of it sitting in one of our cafes watching the barista dial in an espresso dose while having a conversation about stoner metal with one of our regulars. Or maybe you’re hanging out at the new headquarters in industrial Southeast Portland, observing the crux of the operation in full swing. There you might see Jim Kelso, our head of quality control, looking dapper, sampling this season’s Costa Rican day lots, talking cupping scores with head roaster Steve Kirbach, still in his cycling cap. Walk across the airy space, which once housed a timber processing facility, and you’ll find Jonathan Sielaff in the training lab, bedecked in a dark denim Italian apron, experimenting with new brew methods and equipment, leading a barista polishing session, helping to perfect the consummate swirl when steaming milk.

About the company

We love coffee. The taste, the occasion and the ritual.

But when we set out the coffee landscape was very different. It was a totally middle-aged and typically boring environment. So we changed it. Starting right at the beginning we looked at how coffee was being made, found out who was growing what and how we could create the awesome blends you enjoy today.

Coffee Planet is a real-life example of what can be achieved with a bit of discontent with the way things are. Proving there is always a better way of doing, saying or supplying something So, we built our own Coffee Roastery. And got ourselves a cool Roastmaster guy (he’s the coffee expert!) to make the coffee.

After trying every conceivable combination for what seemed an eternity, one day we did it, we hit flavour! It felt like we had struck oil. We had the formula. Let the roasting commence!

We wanted to spread our Coffee universe far and wide, giving good Coffee where previously there was none. Oh, and in a way that was easy for both us and the customer. Fuel stations! Lots of people, all stopping for refreshment. Perfect! They could grab one while filling up, Genius! Out of this thinking came our fresh milk coffee machine, a technologically advanced system so clever it can deliver fantastic coffee every minute of every day to absolute perfection. And thus perfect gourmet Coffee is now available in fuel stations throughout the Middle East because we dared to be different.

Crowdfunding Spotlight: The World’s First Ready to Drink GrassFed Butter Coffee!



"The taste of Grass Fed Coffee exceeded our wildest expectations!" "It's better than any butter coffee I can make at home!”






Grass Fed Coffee is the World's First Ready to Drink Butter Coffee with four key ingredients...






People have been adding cream to coffee forever. Cream is butter, shaken. It's really not that weird.

Also, our GrassFed Butter is full of vitamins and antioxidants. This isn't your run of the mill, super market butter.

It's amazing.


Two years ago, I read about butter coffee and began drinking it every morning in place of breakfast.

After not very long, my friends and I were astounded by my physical transformation. I cut body fat and lost weight.

But beyond the obvious physical changes, I also experienced incredible mental benefits.

My productivity shot through the roof from increased focus. My energy was better than before. No crashes! And it held steady throughout the day.

All from one daily cup of butter coffee!

I wasn't the only one experiencing results too.

Players on the Lakers drink butter coffee before games. It's huge in the Paleo and Cross-Fit communities. Bio-hackers constantly tinker with new versions. Tons of regular folks like you and me also enjoy butter coffee as well.

I started GrassFed Coffee so everyone could experience the benefits of butter coffee.

When our first samples were made, we expected it would taste like butter coffee we made every morning, at home.

But the smoothness of the chicory, combined with the slight sweetness of the xylitol, along with our Peruvian coffee tastes out of this world!

It exceeded our wildest expectations. I can't wait for you to try it!
