A few weeks ago, my friend Alex (who co-founded Giphy
, heard of it?) told me I had to try the brand of coconut water he'd just invested in (gifs, what a business). I don't like coconut water; this was delicious. Here's the story: this guy Grier, who used to be the Red Hot Chili Peppers' production designer, moved to Thailand to open a hotel. That didn't pan out, but in its place he started producing coconut water. Last year, Alex had some on vacation, tried to find it in the US, and couldn't, so he contacted Grier to see about international distribution, which culminated in an investment that makes CoAqua
available to us all. Made of young *roasted* coconuts, which makes the water much sweeter and much more delicious, and bottled in glass so that the delicate flavor stays stable, it's tasty in a way that’s unlike anything else you’ve tried. And now, thanks to Alex, you can find it in the US. And by 'find,' I mean 'order online
.' Highly recommend.
