Kombucha is a vibrant, living elixir made by fermenting organic teas with active bacteria cultures rich in probiotics. We flavor each tea with fresh juices utilizing local fruit, and then use a 2-step fermentation process to cultivate billions of beneficial bacteria in each bottle.
In addition to the living bacteria (probiotics), each bottle contains enzymes, electrolytes, B-vitamins, and antioxidants that your body needs in order to thrive. Regular kombucha drinkers - including our beloved Karibe Kombucha customers - report more steady energy, mental clarity, better digestion, and improved skin. It's no wonder people have been making and drinking kombucha for thousands of years!

We believe in enjoying the taste and benefits of high quality ingredients.
Frequently asked questions
How much sugar is in each bottle?
Each 8oz serving of our kombucha has 3-4 grams of sugar. Sugar is an essential part of the kombucha fermentation process (without sugar, fermentation cannot happen!) However, the majority of the sugar gets eaten by the bacteria during the process, so that each serving is left with a mere 3-4 grams.
What are probiotics?
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that are created during the fermentation process. They help create a healthy, balanced digestive system in order to keep you looking and feeling your best.
Is it safe to drink if you're pregnant?
Since every body and every pregnancy is different, we recommend talking with your care provider before consuming regularly. That being said, many of our clients are pregnant and have noticed benefits from drinking kombucha during their pregnancy. Megan, our founder, drank kombucha regularly during both pregnancies.
Is it safe for kids to drink?
Yes! Probiotics are just as great for kid bellies as they are for adult bellies :) Like any new addition to your child's diet, however, start with small servings (4-8 oz.)
Do you reuse the bottles?
We absolutely do! We sanitize and reuse each bottle that is returned to us. You can bring the bottles to us at our brewery in Rincón, or take them back to the location you purchased them from.
