Hello! We’re Riff!

We’re a coffee company based in Bend, Oregon. In 2018, we launched its line of ready-to-drink cold-brewed coffees and recently launched Alter Ego, a natural energy drink brewed from upcycled coffee fruit (cascara). By utilizing 100% of the harvested coffee, we’re helping create a win-win-win-win scenario by providing a big boost for coffee farmers, adding sustainability to the coffee industry, reducing the impact on the environment, and delivering a clean label energy drink to consumers.

here’s how we’re making a positive impact

Riff is a member of 1% for the Planet, donating sales to non-profits in coffee growing regions.


Coffee fruit is traditionally discarded after the harvest. Through upcycling coffee fruit, we can reduce the greatest threat to the coffee industry…climate change.

Job Creation

Employment opportunities can double throughout the supply chain by increasing demand for coffee fruit.

New Revenue

By creating a marketplace and demand for coffee fruit, farmers have the opportunity to double revenue without adding crops, with minimal investment.

Meet the team

We’re veterans from coffee, craft beverage, tech, pro sports and CPG on a mission to explore and celebrate 100% of the coffee plant’s agricultural value. And to have a really awesome time doing it!
