red espresso® founder, Carl Pretorius.
A South African innovation, red espresso® was invented by Western Cape farmer Carl Pretorius when he was seeking a healthy, caffeine-free alternative to curb his 6-a-day espresso addiction. Not wanting to give up his beloved café culture and inspired by the caffeine-free South African herbal tea, Rooibos, Carl started experimented with expressing and perfecting a tea espresso. After many months, he succeeded in expressing a shot that not only tasted delicious, but was also rich in antioxidants and coated with crema! Carl patented the concept, teamed up with family and friends and, together, created the red espresso® brand in 2005. Pioneering an entirely new range of drinks that affords health without compromising on good taste and style, red espresso® has won a number of awards for innovation.
Only the very best Rooibos is used for red espresso®. Within the 60-mile radius of the Cedarberg Mountains in South Africa – the only place in the world Rooibos grows – red espresso® Rooibos grows at highest altitude on a single, family-run estate and is hand-harvested. red espresso® has no preservatives, additives or colorants: it is 100% natural.
