Vera Roasting Company was founded by an organic chemist, Dr. Glen Miller. Working with natural compounds in his research first brought resveratrol to his attention. You may be familiar with resveratrol- it is the powerful antioxidant found in red wine that is associated with heart health. Dr. Miller began to wonder how Americans could consume more resveratrol without drinking more red wine. Finally it came to him- coffee! 82 percent of Americans drink coffee every day and it is the perfect vehicle to deliver the benefits of resveratrol. After much research, he developed a process to infuse the antioxidant into freshly roasted Arabica bean coffee and heart healthy coffee was created.
