Who are we?

It was a crisp Fall evening, I pulled up in my 2005 Nissan Altima to the sound of deep African drums shaking the ground, pulsing through the air.  Adults and kids were reveling under the Full Moon, next to the big beautiful and lush Bodhi tree.  I pop the trunk and grab a handful of pop top bottles and walk to the circle, nervously, to offer samples of my passion hobby.

This was ten years ago.  I had just moved to Orlando from Massachusetts where I worked for a Medical Device startup as a Mechanical Engineer.  In August of 2012, I moved to Orlando with a car load of my belongings, and one jar of Kombucha Mother.  I found my community in Central Florida through the drum circle, and I brought my offerings to share.  This was the beginning.

Today I run a 3200 square foot facility in Orlando, FL, where we produce the finest, cleanest, and most intentional kombucha in the Sunshine State.  And we are now changing everything we do, from the ground up.

I left the Medical Industry because I realized one thing.  It wasn't about healing people, it was about profits.  I had just began home brewing kombucha, and it transformed me, from the inside out.  I thought to myself, "here is a product that can actually benefit the whole of humanity."  And so Living Vitalitea was born.

Living Vitalitea currently produces about 1200 gallons per month, we serve over 100 accounts in Central Florida, and we are in the process of completely evolving our product line, and re-launching over the coming two months with a brand new line of Functional Elixirs focusing on powerful intentional ingredients to benefit humanity.  Stay tuned as we make more announcements in the coming weeks!

Cheers to you!
