Getting up in the morning suspended 1,000 feet up on a rock wall is just a normal day at the office for Matt Segal, founder of Alpine Start and professional rock climber. Matt has climbed routes around the world for the last 20 years. Through all of that time of coffee stains and Aeropress accidents on high ledges, he decided that there had to be a better alternative. And with that, Alpine Start was born.
In climbing terms, an Alpine Start involves waking up before the sun to ensure the best climbing conditions, but we like to think that you’re just YOLOing and squeezing as much into your day as you can. Either way, we created Alpine Start to help you seize the morning. Whatever your Alpine Start is, we hope our coffee helps you live it to the fullest. Cheers!

"Even when I have the time to brew a French press or pourover, sometimes I still choose my Alpine Start. It's just that good."
"A smooth, easy-to-drink cup of java."
“Alpine Start is packed with bold flavor, with notes of dark chocolate and roasted hazelnuts, but isn't bitter."
