Molly Brown and Tatiana Kaiser met in a glass-blowing class. Two lifelong artists, they discovered they had something else in common: a lot of health issues.
“I had severe ulcerated colitis,” Kaiser said. “I couldn’t kick it for the longest time. Molly also had had health problems. We became good friends and she got me into juicing.”
Their common interests led them to become business partners, too. With the help of another artist friend, Chris Ryan, they opened Sun & Soil Juice Co. this past week in midtown Sacramento. At 1912 P St., the organic juice bar has a built-in clientele; it’s next door to a yoga studio.
“We definitely know when yoga class lets out,” Brown said.
Offering high-grade organic raw juice and smoothies, the pair want to attract customers far beyond the yoga mat. For their menu, they’ve developed a broad range of intriguing and flavorful juice concoctions, bursting with flavor as well as antioxidants. Upscale in price and made fresh to order, the raw juice blends and smoothies are priced from $6 (for an 8-ounce basic apple) to $9 (for a 16-ounce special blend).
