Javazen is the Evolution of Coffee — a blend of organic coffee with adaptogenic teas and nutrient-dense superfoods in perfect harmony. The company was founded by 3 college roommates that wanted more fromunknown coffee than jitters, a bitter taste, and a lack of nutrients. Javazen is 100% organic, paleo friendly, gluten free, sugar free, kosher, and it also tastes great! The company believes in their product so much that they are willing to give away a FREE sample. That’s right, all you have to do is pay for shipping and you will receive one of each of their three blends. Their new Brew Bags are single serving ‘tea bags’ filled with Javazen.
