reserve borogoru

s.o. premium instant raw kava juice

The world of single origin kava is a realm of enchanting variety, where each varietal promises an entirely different experience.

After much searching we finally found a borogoru cultivar we could be proud to put our name behind. Borogoru is a varietal favorite amongst locals and after you try the latest batch, it'll be very clear why

What is kava?

Haven’t heard of kava? Kava is made from the roots of a pepper plant native to the South Pacific. It has a fascinating earthy yet numbing taste, that results from the high level of calming actives in the roots.

Natural kava is vegan, gluten-free, nonaddictive, and full of liver protecting properties.

How many servings

All of our jars have a scooper. 1 scoop is between 170mg - 300mg+ of kavalactones depending on the blend or varietal.

This is more of a guidance since all kava's have different experience profiles.

Regardless, expect 50+ servings with a 100g jar

Is kava safe

Kava is generally recognized as a safer/healthier non-addictive alternative to alcohol as long as it is consumed in the traditional form.

For this reason we generally DO NOT recommend non-traditional methods of using kava such as: pills, concentrates, ready-to-drink made with concentrates, tinctures, and micronized kava. These are convenient but aside for the last one, they shouldn't be called kava. In the same way you don't put caffeine in a pill and call it coffee, you shouldn't put extract in a soda can and call it kava.

Traditional kava has not been shown to be addictive in clinical trials and does not activate physiological or psychological addiction tendancies found in beverages and supplements like alcohol or kratom.

"a healthier alternative to alcohol and caffeine"

"exceptionally potent... strongest instant kava I’ve tried"

"like I’d been lulled to sleep on a cloud"

"My muscles feel rubbery and my upper body feels light"

why we made this

Best for solo evenings and deep meditative exercises

All hail the muscle melter

If a standard melo melo is the "Stone IPA", then this borogoru is the Triple Hazy Ipa from Monkish.

Many farmers specialize in this specific varietal species so there was a ton of different cuts to go through. Each farm has their own style of farming giving off unique fruits of their labor. Like everything in life, we thought it would be simple and quick to find a cultivar we liked, but it was well over a year until we ran across one we truly loved.

This particular one is thick, clean, palatable and puts you in that sweet kava zone. Freshly batched and ready for consumption, we believe this varietal is the true definition of what Vanuatu kava is.

Enjoy responsibly

Generic kava is BORING. Don't be boring.

about borogoru

Our recent batch of borogoru introduced a new dimension of light mental clarity and focus I haven't seen in borogoru's before. It reminded me of the underlying ceremonial purpose of kava for both the body and the soul. 

Borogoru is a beloved kava variety from Vanuatu known for its well-balanced, substantial characteristics. This mellow and soothing kava offers a slow and deep-acting experiences. It's calming style unfolds a complexity not often seen in similar more potent strains.

This one is most suitable for solitary introspection, exploring deep mental expansiveness, or simply relaxing the muscles after a strenuous activity.

We hope you enjoy and thank you for your continued love and support.

what is instant kava

cheers to the world of instant kava

Often imitated never duplicated

drinkroot instant kava starts with a careful selection of either single origin harvests or a hand selected blend of the top noble varietals, to create a unique premium mixture.

After harvest, every amalgamated batch of roots first undergoes a strict QC analysis to ensure premium kavalactone characteristics and content to match your desired experience profile.

The proprietary blend is then carefully brewed and homogenized in a closed temperature controlled environment with warm filtered water to mimic traditional brew methods. After juice is pressed it is rapidly dehydrated so it can be immediately added to any liquid without any filtering needed!

No bark.
No fillers.
No micronized roots.
Pure kava.
