Diaspora Cafe Yaupon Espresso

Eco-friendly, LGBTQ-owned, Minority-owned

Yaupon is the only caffeinated plant native to North America, known to some First People as Turtle Island. It is considered a superfood high in several adaptogenic compounds:

  • quercetin-rutinoside known to reduce inflammation and stabilise metabolism
  • caffeine you already know what this is
  • theobromine this is known as the chocolate molecule
  • theophylline this one supports the respiratory system
  • theacrine just as much as tea
  • high in antioxidants and low in acid

When roasting, brewing and serving yaupon, we aim to honor and follow the traditions of those who cultivated the plants before us including the Cherokee, Choctaw, and Muscogee people. We use only Regenerative Organic Certified® yaupon leaves from small farms in Georgia, Florida and Texas. The flavor includes familiar notes of both tea and coffee.
