About the Founder
Lopa Van Der Mersch
Lopa van der Mersch built the alternative to coffee company Rasa with a personal mission to transform the way people energize. After a year of stressful life experiences on top of being a new, first-time mom, Lopa van Der Mersch realized that all the coffee she drank to keep her going, did quite the opposite. Instead of getting energized she found her heart racing, anxious, irritable and not sleeping through the night. On the search for an alternative she found her own alternative in the form of delicious, nourishing tonics, when she partnered with an herbalist. Rasa was born. What started in her kitchen, has now served over 100,000 customers seeking a healthier way to energize.
