An award-winning range of deliciously healthy coffee alternatives

Whether you’re a coffee drinker looking to cut down on caffeine, a pregnant mom who doesn’t want to give up your favourite cappuccino or latte, or simply conscious about living a healthier life, red espresso is an easy and delicious way to add colour and health to your day.

In 2005, we created the world’s first rooibos tea espresso as a naturally caffeine-free alternative to coffee for people who were unable to drink caffeine or looking to reduce their caffeine intake. We created a range of café style rooibos drinks and became famous for our much-loved rooibos red cappuccino and red latte. In the process, we won six international awards for pioneering healthy café culture and inadvertently attracted many consumers who had no health concerns but who couldn’t get enough of red espresso’s delicious flavour.

Since then we have created healthier versions of many of the world’s favourite drinks – from chai and matcha to iced tea – through our passion for simple ingredients and honest flavours.

Whether you love the refreshing taste of rooibos, the functional health benefits of superfoods or the heart-warming goodness of chai and hot chocolate, there’s a red espresso flavour to suit your lifestyle.

made from pure, simple ingredients you can trust

Slow grown as close to nature as possible, you can taste the inherent goodness and real flavour of our ingredients in every cup.
