About the Brand
We make good food that also happens to be good for you.
Our founder, Naomi Seifter, has battled chronic, food-allergy-related illness since she was a child. Her search for a solution to improve her health led her to discover the beneficial effects of an allergen-free diet. Although she finally understood how to improve her eating habits, it was nearly impossible for her to eat anything that wasn’t prepared in her own kitchen. To offer a solution, Naomi opened Picnik in 2013, an Austin-based food trailer in a repurposed shipping container. The concept was simple: wholesome food that’s convenient and nutritious. Picnik began serving gluten-free grab-and-go breakfast and lunch items, butter coffee, and bone broth, all with a focus on sourcing locally and using premium ingredients.
As one of the first paleo-friendly concepts in Austin, Picnik quickly gained a devoted following (especially for our grass-fed butter coffee), and in 2016, we opened our first brick-and-mortar restaurant. The following year, we hit grocery stores nationwide to share the goodness of our butter coffee recipes, and opened a second food trailer. Picnik continues to grow and impact the wellbeing of thousands of people. We make good food that also happens to be good for you. We completely embrace the yin and yang of why we eat: to nourish our bodies and experience pure enjoyment. By using thoughtfully-sourced, good-for-you ingredients, our customers can confidently look forward to feeling their very best. We believe in eliminating the foods that do not serve our customers’ health, integrating foods that positively impact our customers’ health—and doing it in a practical and convenient way. Picnik’s warm and inclusive community readily caters to your exclusionary requests.
Why do you use butter instead of milk or cream in your drinks?
Grass-fed butter has a different genetic makeup than conventional butter. It is a healthy, nutrient dense source of fat, similar to an avocado! Grass-fed butter contains nutrients such as Vitamin K and butyrate that can actually help reduce inflammation and contribute to good heart health! It’s a source of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids as well as other fat-soluble vitamins and trace minerals.
What makes Picnik coffee different?
Picnik coffee is a blend of organic coffee, grass-fed butter, and MCT oil. When combined with coffee, the ingredients work together to keep your energy level sustained for hours, without the typical coffee crash. Butter coffee is known to boost cognitive function, support fat burn, balance mood and hormone levels and reduce hunger. It’s one of our favorite drinks on the planet, and we’ve dedicated our lives to sharing it with you.
What kind of butter do you use in your products?
We use only unsalted, grass-fed butter to make our coffee light and creamy. This replaces the traditional splash of milk or cream.
What is MCT oil?
“MCT” stands for “medium-chain triglycerides,” saturated fatty acids that are easily digested and sent to the liver to be converted into fuel for the body, rather than stored as fat. Coconut oil is a great source of MCTs, but concentrated MCT oil is what we use in our products because it’s packed with the shortest-chain MCTs, so it can be transformed into fuel in a snap. MCTs are known to have a range of health benefits including: improved cognitive function, increased energy and metabolic function, balanced hormone levels, and maintenance of a healthy weight.
What kind of coffee do you use in your Butter Coffee?
We pride ourselves on utilizing not only the highest quality of ingredients possible, but ones that are also sustainable and mindfully sourced. We use direct trade organic cold brew coffee.
How much caffeine is in each bottle?
Each bottle contains nearly the equivalent amount of caffeine as a twelve ounce cup of coffee. The Cappuccino has 160mg, the Mocha contains 150mg, and the Chai includes 140mg of caffeine.
