The Meaning Behind 'Peak State'

Peak State of Mind


Peak State came to be when our Founder, Danny, wanted to help others feel optimal in their morning coffee routine, in the same way that spending time  in nature can help us feel optimal - mentally and physically. The idea came to him when he was spending time in the mountains working on a professional trail crew, working with his hands, moving around all day, breathing fresh air, and living a life that felt like his own sort of "peak state".

But regardless of the nature inspired origin, mountainous CO headquarters, or feel good ingredients, we didn't stop there. We asked a range of people to answer the question, “What is Your Peak State?” The answer to this question meant entirely different things to each person, and here’s what we found:
