Doug Visits our Agave Farm (Part 1)

Recently at Coconut Bliss, we have been receiving a lot of inquiries from Bliss lovers about agave. There has been a flurry of information coming out on the Internet that challenges its status as a healthy alternative to other sugars.

At Coconut Bliss, we pride ourselves on integrity and honesty, sourcing only the purest and highest quality ingredients. Our own research into agave has culminated just this past week in having our General Manager, Doug Furlong, visit Jalisco, Mexico to personally inspect our agave producer's fields and facilities. This first article will talk about the general parts of how our agave is processed. Future articles in this series will go into detail about this unique plant and food source, and the history that surrounds it...

This is part one of a travel journal from our General Manager, Doug Furlong; he visited the source of our agave nectar in Jalisco, Mexico. The blog post has been moved to our new blog and website here:


  1. What an interesting post! Thanks so much for sharing. As a consumer, I really enjoying seeing where my food comes from. I look forward to reading more (and eating more sinfully delicious Coconut Bliss).

  2. Hi Danielle,
    I'm glad you enjoyed this post, the trip was very educational and we can't wait to share more of what we learned!

  3. I'm with Danielle! It is wonderful to see the faces behind our food - thanks for such an interesting post. I'm looking forward to the rest of the story.

  4. Ah! So *you* guys are the reason the cost of tequila keeps skyrocketing! All those perfectly good pinas being boiled down to fructose. :cries:
