Meet the Team

Pura Vida Organics is a locally owned, family and friend operated business.


Yvonne is a keen Kombucha brewer and has been for the last 2 years.   Mainly servicing the local markets and local regular Buche lovers.

It all began with her taste for kombucha and began brewing at home for herself and family.  Soon hooked on the way it tasted and made her feel this superfood was shared with extended family and friends. As they then became hooked and craving more, Pura Vida Organics was born.

She prides herself on providing an organic product that is hand made and sold personally without the middle man.
