Avocado Egg Toast + Cold Brew
When you want a rich, hearty, nutritional breakfast that doesn’t require turning on the oven, avocado egg toast is the perfect choice. Use ripe avocados for easier slicing, and make your eggs slightly runny or soft-boiled.
Pesto Goat Cheese Croissants + Cortado
The aroma and texture of fresh goat cheese combined with Italian pesto and soft, buttery croissants is the perfect way to start your day.
This savory breakfast goes great with a cup of freshly brewed cortado, for which we recommend the Sträva Peace and Wellness Collection of single-origin beans.

Sträva Tip: A Cortado is a combination of equal amounts of espresso and steamed milk. The word ‘cortado’ means ‘to cut’, which is what the milk does to the coffee – it cuts (or reduces) its acidity levels. Make sure to add the steamed milk without the foam or froth.
Homemade Oatmeal Breakfast Bars + Adaptogen Coffee
When you want a filling breakfast that you can grab on the go or as a snack, try homemade oatmeal breakfast bars. The possibilities are endless, and you can use dried fruits, nuts, seeds, hemp hearts, and even coffee in your bars.
Paired with adaptogen-infused coffee, you’re in for a breakfast of champions. Adaptogens are herbs and plants with healing properties that can help your body and mind adapt to environmental and life changes and better cope with stress. One such adaptogen is the hemp plant.

Cold brew coffee is more than just a trend – it’s slowly becoming a kitchen staple, especially for coffee lovers who need all the caffeine they can get without the jitters.
Cold brew coffee can sit in the fridge for days and you’ll always have a cup of fresh, ice-cold coffee to get you out of a slump. You can also bake desserts and cakes with cold brew coffee as it has a slightly sweet taste compared to regularly brewed coffee.
