Hamptons Juice Tour Part Three- Jack's

I grew up surrounded by coffee and coffee drinkers. My father made his career in coffee, sugar and cocoa, and by the time I was a teen I was enjoying a cup or so of java a day. There were always bags of exotic coffee in our house and the smell still makes me nostalgic for my childhood. You can imagine the shock in my family when I quit drinking coffee about four years ago! For me quitting coffee was a huge step in cleaning up my eating and drinking habits. Not only did I quit coffee but I also was finally able to quit dairy as the skim milk in my daily latte was the last vestige of dairy in my diet.

So what was I doing at Jack's Stir Brew on a rainy afternoon with my sister? Getting green juice! Jack's in Amagansett carries their own house made pressed juices! They also stock my favorite Harmless Harvest raw coconut water which is an added bonus!

My favorite pressed juice at Jack's is the Mr. Green. It is green enough for a hard core green juice drinker like me, but still mild enough for newbies! I love the idea of someone picking up an alkalizing green juice to have before their highly acidic coffee.

I picked up some Mr. Green's for myself and a few extra for Doug to have when he arrived from NYC. Along with delicious green juice and coffee ( so says my sister) Jack's also stocks a few SJM approved treats including  Mast Brothers Dark Chocolate and Brad's Raw Chips .

My favorite thing about Jack's is that my sister and I both adore it for different reasons. We can go together and each get exactly what she want. For her it's an iced latte, for me it's pressed green juice!
