We first discovered Sajen on the first day it sold its inaugural products, turmeric and ginger-turmeric jamu, at the World Vegetarian Day Festival. A little over one year later and the small independent company has distribution through 14 Bay Area retail partners.

Beets Q is the newest offering from Sajen founder Morsinah Katmin's kitchen at San Francisco's La Cocina, and, like her first two, is also based on a health-promoting recipe from her grandmothers in the mountains of Central Java, Indonesia. Red beet juice, tamarind juice, and agave nectar are the chief ingredients in this tisane that gives a little lift and might, in large quantities, actually prove helpful for fighting high blood pressure.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
