We started FRESCOS NATURALES to share our love for natural fruit beverages with Latin American twist. Juan grew up in La Antigua, Guatemala, enjoying the many options for natural refrescos, whether at home or the local market, and made from a wide variety of tropical ingredients, such as pineapple, hibiscus and tamarind. His cousin and business partner, Charlie, had the chance to taste countless wonderful concoctions through his trips to visit Guatemala. Partner and art director, Sebastián, also grew up drinking jugos de mercado in Peru.
In 2018 FRESCOS began bottling Rosa de Jamaica, a sweet and tart hibiscus infusion popular throughout Latin America, and selling it at local farmer’s markets. People loved it! While we loved the drinks as much as our most loyal customers, we wanted to innovate and make an impact in the natural beverages industry. So in 2020, amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic, we introduced carbonated versions, expanding from just the classic jamaica and adding tamarindo (tamarind) and maracuyá (passion fruit.) The incredibly positive response from our community reassured us we are on the right path!
FRESCOS NATURALES is out to bring you a taste of Latin America’s most emblematic beverages! Starting with Rosa de Jamaica, Tamarindo and Maracuyá, but stay tuned for new flavors coming this year!
We hope you’ll love to drink FRESCOS as much as we do!
Juan, Charlie, and Sebastián
