Kombucha: More art than science?

On August 14th, 2019 at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, the Rare Fruit Council International, Miami had the pleasure of hosting Counter Culture, a boutique kombucha company headquartered in South Florida. Buster Brown, one of Counter Culture’s founders, along with Laura Sutton represented the brand and shared a great deal of information about fermentation, the health benefits of kombucha, and their philosophy on tropical fruit flavorings.

It’s the mango season. And we just can’t have enough of it. Small, big, yellow, green, mango comes in all sizes and is regarded as the king of all fruits.
