Fun fact: Did you know that craft coffee hits "peak freshness" between Day 3 and Day 14 after roasting?
Founded by Nick Selman, Javaya is the only craft coffee marketplace that fresh-dates every coffee it sells. You can choose from hundreds of artisan roasters (including 14 Chicago roasters) and have coffee delivered to your doorstep just as its hitting peak freshness.
Founded by Jessica Mann, Ari Rose is a consciously crafted body care company focused on holistic self-care, made with the idea of skin-food in mind. Ari Rose uses ingredients you can eat, such as organic coconut milk, raw honey, oatmeal, and cinnamon. Ari Rose products are vegan, cruelty-free, and will repair and nourish the skin.
