Mac’s Story

Mac’s Coffee Spritz is my take on simple, refreshing energy from just three ingredients; cold brew, maple and lemons. Mac’s Coffee Spritz is as refreshing as lemonade, delivers 80mg of caffeine from cold brew and it’s a good source of potassium to keep your body hydrated when you’re on the move.

I’ve been active outdoors since the days my brother and I climbed trees.  As we got older, we left the forest to climb epic backcountry bowls on ski trips out West.  It was then that I realized something was missing — my coffee! I love making a delicious brew in the morning, or while at the office, but when it comes to outdoor adventures, it doesn’t fit. And neither do the jitter-inducing energy drinks.

So what do you do when life gives you lemons? I rushed down the mountain back to the AirBnb and squeezed lemons into my cold brew coffee, added maple syrup and a bit of seltzer. WHOA THAT WAS GOOD! 

Not long after, I decided to quit my job as an architect in NYC and instead explore a whole new world that made me feel alive. Along the way I have learned new skills like how to extract the most amount of juice from a lemon, started a canning factory in Brooklyn where we’ve developed beverages for amazing brands, built meaningful relationships and fell in love. I was living life to the max and loving every moment.

Life is about finding new experiences that give you energy and Mac’s Coffee Spritz is the perfect sidekick. If you decide to Take It To The Mac’s, send me a note, I’d love to hear your story.
