Coffee Spotlight: Chameleon Cold Brew Coffee



We treat every batch with meticulous care, using only the best ingredients and premium packaging to maximize freshness and taste. Our concentrates only get our stamp of approval when we believe they’re perfect. So pick up a bottle, and enjoy each drink a different way – straight up or diluted, hot or iced, black or creamy, sweet or not.





Black Coffee
Our original Black Coffee is a custom roast of Central/South American 100% organic, Fair Trade coffees for a deliciously smooth coffee experience. The “OC” (Original Chameleon) is like your best friend: classic, awesome, tried and true





It’s amazing what just a touch of cocoa extract will do to highlight the chocolate notes already found in our original blend. Give this baby a try and taste for yourself – it’s chocolaty and smooth to the last drop.







We took our trademark blend of coffee, roast and water and added just a hint of vanilla to it. Our Vanilla Coffee concentrate is a surprisingly light and balanced coffee that’s equally enjoyable hot or cold, straight or sweet, light or dark.




Chameleon Cold-Brew is handcrafted in Austin, Texas by a small group of dedicated coffeenistas and entrepreneurs.  We brew each batch low and slow for more than 16 hours at a controlled temperature to produce a super smooth, extra caffeinated concentrated coffee with less acid than traditional hot-brewed coffees.  We only use 100% organic, Fair Trade Arabica coffee beans and filtered water. The rest is up to you. Enjoy Chameleon hot or cold, black, undiluted in small amounts or mixed with your favorite flavors, creamers, or other additions — and it’s perfect for drinking at home, at the office or on the go. You can find Chameleon Cold-Brew in the refrigerated section of select grocers in convenient and recyclable 16oz and 32oz glass bottles.



Chameleon co-founders Chris Campbell and Steve Williams met at a neighborhood 4th of July party near the University of Texas campus and discovered that they share a passion for the entrepreneurial life. Inspired by many cups of coffee and Steve’s success owning and operating coffee shops, they founded Chameleon Cold-Brew in 2010 with the goal of bringing the high quality, great flavor and convenience of cold-brewed coffee to the masses.  Both Chris and Steve are committed to building the Chameleon brand locally and maintaining its Austin roots while growing beyond the bounds of Central Texas.

Alcohol Spotlight: Tequila 512 Blanco



Tequila 512 Blanco is triple distilled, 100% Agave premium tequila; a full and complex tequila with hints of sweetness, spice, pepper and an extremely smooth finish. Perfect for sipping or to elevate any cocktail. Made using the finest estate grown blue agave in the central lowlands outside the village of Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico. The agave piñas are roasted in traditional stone ovens and slowly fermented before distillation. The tequila is filtered for 24 hours, which helps to smooth and mellow the flavor. An oxygenation process is used to enhance the texture, creating a soft, velvety feel. Both processes are implemented without removing the delicate characteristics of the agave. Tequila 512 Blanco is tequila without pretense or gimmicks.


The Story
Tequila 512 is the product of a lot of blood, sweat and tears from local Austinite, Scott Willis. Meet Willis here to learn more about the story behind his labor of love.

In short, Willis has always been inspired by all things Austin (512 is the local area code), to the point of uprooting his life to move there and be a part of its vibrant music and cultural scene. In 2007, he decided entering the spirits market was the best way for him to be a part of that scene and he set out to create a product and brand that represented Austin and all of the things he loved about the town.

Product Spotlight: Buddhas Brew Kombucha


Buddha's Brew Kombucha is proudly born 'n' brewed in Austin, Texas. ​​​​​

When we craft Kombucha, we craft a Live-Culture Kombucha.

Buddha’s Brew Kombucha is not only delicious, it’s unfiltered and raw.

We use premium ingredients in a recipe finely tuned for functional, living probiotics. Each ingredient has it’s purpose. Our levels of sweet, sour and fiz are ideal for functional, living probiotics. Balance your body with a perfectly balanced Kombucha - Brewed with Love from Buddha's Brew.

Awaken your energy with delicious, pro-biotic Kombucha from Buddha’s Brew!​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Buddha's Brew Kombucha is available in bottles and on tap in the greater Austin area with limited availability in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Baton Rouge, Metairie, New Orleans, Oklahoma City & Tulsa.

Their Story
Buddha's Brew Kombucha is a handcrafted, ancient beverage that awakens the body’s natural energy. We decided on the name Buddha's Brew
because we strive to live in the present, in a healthy and sustainable way.
Consuming Kombucha is a perfect complement for this lifestyle. ​

Buddha's Brew's story begins with founder Kimberly Lanski, who has
​devoted her life to meditation, spiritual practice and exploring nutritious
whole foods. In 1996, she founded Love in Oven which supplied some of the
first local all vegan cookies to several Austin stores including Whole Foods.

Around this time she came upon Kombucha and became fascinated by its
ability to help the body maintain a healthy metabolic balance. In 2006, at
the urging of her kombucha-craving friends, Kimberly joined with John-Paxton Gremillion and combined their homebrewing and culinary experiences to create Buddha's Brew.

Buddha's Brew kombucha is equally tantalizing, invigorating and rejuvenating. Organic ingredients and fair trade tea are used in our brewing process which takes place in our kombucha brewery or as we sometimes call it 'Kombucherie' in South Austin. We believe high-quality, effective, probiotic-rich kombucha can and should be delicious and the recipe for each flavor was delicately crafted with that in mind. Striving for optimal health, we brew and bottle our Kombucha to have the perfect balance of ingredients that support living probiotics and enzymes. The Buddha's Brew crew carefully monitors each batch for taste and quality to ensure it meets our high standards in this regard.​

Our story is still in the early chapters as we continue to expand our production in a slow way that does not interfere with quality. Thank you for joining the journey with us and for taking the time to learn more about Buddha's Brew Kombucha.
