Beverage Questions

How do I drink ultrasonic brews?All drinks, unless otherwise noted, are made at an 8x concentration. Another way of saying this is a 1:7 ratio or 1 part (EX: 1 ounce) of concentrate to 7 parts (EX: 7 ounces) of hot or cold water. This is the lowest concentration that makes a strong 'enough' beverage by our best estimate, but you are always welcome to go higher or lower. If a stronger beverage is desired, a dilution of 1:4 should be the target instead. A 1:1 ratio dilution will give you an esspresso type beverage. The flavor will change as you dilute so be sure to try a couple different concentrations.

If using hot water, you want it to be close to sippable ~160°F (71°C) and not boiling over before adding to the concentrate. Since we do not use heat to extract, we preserve the heat sensitive contents of our brew. High temperature, boiling water will significantly damage and alter the flavors in your beverage over time.

Our products generally have more undamaged, naturally fat and sugar from the brew than a typical extraction, so one should add a bit less of both creamer and sugar than usual.

How do I store ultrasonic products?All bottles are to be refrigerated while being stored. This will ensure you get the maximum flavor and longevity of the product to the dates listed on the bottle. It should last at least 4 months from when we produced the concnetrate. It should also preserve its flavor for at least 1 month when opened in the fridge with a slight change in flavor as the bottle re-oxygenates. 

Is there any added sugar?No. Our coffees and teas contain no sugar and any drink that might in the future will be clearly labeled as such.

The one exception being our broths, which contain a typical amount of sugar.

Do you have organic options?Yes we do. All recipes using an organic ingredient will be labeled as such in their description. We strive to get the most inclusive ingredients whenever we can, including organics.

Do we recycle bottles?Yes we do. To encourage this, we offer $1 off per bottle returned on your next order.

The bottles should be mostly cleaned. We do not reuse caps.

Ultrasonic Questions

Are there any health benefits to ultrasonics?Ultrasonic's raw yet still highly destructive extraction enables you to get more of whatever brew ingredients while preserving the extraction better than other methods. More extraction means more of whatever benefit you are looking at. 

In addition, the low acidity of the beverages aids in general gut health and comfort while drinking.

Finally, enhanced storage time means you will get a healthy-to-drink drink for longer.

What kind of ultrasonicator machine do you use?I use a ultrasonicator that is meant to be used in a molecular biology lab. It has food safe and cleanable parts in keeping with the needs of a sanitary lab environment, and a kitchen.

Other uses for this machine include cleaning of machine parts, and dentistry tools equipment.

What happens when the machine is turned on?The machine emits an unpleasant high pitched noise for the entire hour or so processes. On the top of the water there is a pattern of small standing waves which seem to be standing still.

Other Questions

Where do I get my ingredients from?I try the best to source from San Diego. For most coffees and teas, this means that I purchase from a whole saler in San Diego. Please see individual shop items for sourcing information.
