Why we love it

Picture this: You get to the end of your sunrise hike and don't want to miss a second of the sun coming up, but you're on coffee duty. You quickly stir up some fresh coffee with these bad boys, pass around some cups, and would you look at that—you're sipping on brew just in time for the first ray of sun. Wherever you fit on the spectrum of caffeine needs, time constraints, and geographical location, this instant coffee is your new right hand man.

How it does good

Thoughtful coffee on-the-go

Sip on this: Instant coffee has a significantly lower carbon footprint than both ready-to-drink coffee and coffee beans. Alpine Start is running with that. Their process starts with slow-roasted, arabica beans grown on high-altitude Colombian farms. Then they brew it just like normal coffee. Next, they dehydrate it to lock in its full fresh-brewed flavor and aroma. Lastly, they package it so that you can easily take it with you anywhere. Plus, it’s keto-friendly.

  • responsible sourcing

    Alpine Start makes their coffee from 100% high-altitude Colombian arabica beans. Their coffees are also vegan and verified non-GMO.
  • low carbon footprint

    Alpine Start is on their way to becoming Carbon Neutral certified.
  • supporting key causes

    Alpine Start believes it’s their responsibility to protect the wild places we love from climate change. Not only does it threaten the pristine beauty of the mountains, but also the delicate balance of the high-altitude ecosystems where their coffee grows. It’s why they donate 1% of all sales to 1% for the Planet and are a Foundation Partner with Protect Our Winters (POW). They also donate and give their time to organizations that promote the outdoors and access to the outdoors such as Color the Crag, Brown Girls Climb, and the Access Fund.

About the Brand

Alpine Start Foods

Alpine Start Foods

Started by a professional rock climber who was looking for an easier alternative to making coffee in the outdoors, Alpine Start makes instant coffees that keep up with your lifestyle. After climbing routes around the world for the last 20 years, getting up in the morning suspended 1,000 feet up on a rock wall is just a normal day at the office for founder Matt Segal. A veteran of coffee stains and Aeropress accidents on high ledges, he decided that there had to be a better alternative. And with that, Alpine Start was born. In climbing terms, an "Alpine Start" involves waking up before the sun to ensure the best climbing conditions, but it can also mean squeezing as much into your day as you can. Either way, Alpine Start is helping you seize the morning.
