Bossa Nova – The Juicy Rainforest


We came across this cool product called Bossa Nova, a kind of juice that uses açai. What is açai?

Açai (ah-sci-ee) is a rain forest berry – a small, dark purple fruit that grows on palm trees on the floodplains of the Amazon basin. Recent scientific study has earned Bossa Nova Acai Juice it the enviable title of “world’s healthiest fruit” in part, because it is likely to be the world’s highest antioxidant fruit.

What on earth does this have to do with birding? With the purchase of every drink, Bossa Nova saves a tree in the Brazilian rain forest. This is similar to the concept of shade-grown coffee. When companies can profit off of natural products, they inherently want to protect the habitat that produces their product. These are the win-win situations that conservationists love.

Now, as for the taste, we all tried it out and were pleasantly surprised. The berryish flavor is unique yet delicious. There is no nasty aftertaste and the drink is refreshing. I don’t imagine this becoming a daily beverage – $2.69 for a 10 oz. bottle is rather pricey – but I would recommend this to others to try out.
