Review: Kohana Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate

Kohana recently revamped its line of cold brew concentrates, which now come with a new label and a slightly revised formulation. Available in four varieties -- Original, French Roast, Decaf and French Vanilla -- the USDA Organic products are attractive in design, through we'd recommend a slight tweak or two to better differentiate the products from one another.

Review: Runa Orange Passion

Runa, which markets a line guayusa-infused beverages, has added a new Orange Passion variety to its "Clean Energy" carbonated sub-line. Compared with the other flavors of Runa Clean Energy, we really like use of an orange accent color, which appears on some of the text and in the fruit images.

Review: C2O Coconut Water (Original and Chocolate Varieties)

C2O, which markets Thai-sourced coconut water in both can and Tetra Pak containers, recently launched its first flavored line extension, a chocolate variety. In our review of the brand's original variety (packaged in a 17.5 oz. can) and the chocolate product, which comes in a 1 L Tetra Pak, we find both products to be very good formulation-wise, but have some suggestions for the label of C2O's new flavor.

Coming under the banner of its "Essentials" sub-line, the set includes three new items: a probiotic-infused juice, a green juice, and a protein-rich, almond milk-based beverage.
