By the end of summer in 2013, our founder CocoVinny had sampled almost every bottled and canned coconut water on the market and had come to the conclusion that he hated coconut water. By pure luck and divine intervention, a business associate from Indonesia shared a fresh young coconut with him. Reluctant at first, CocoVinny decided to give this coconut one last chance. The difference in taste from the canned and bottled coconut water would come to change his life forever. Every day for the next three weeks, CocoVinny would crack open his own coconut after the gym with a knife and hammer. One day, he broke his stepdad Bill's knife trying to get into a coconut. Bill was not pleased at all. CocoVinny decided to shop for a coconut tool online and in retail stores. What he discovered was a small selection of cheaply made foreign products. Nothing had the coco coolness and "Made in USA" quality to tap his thirst. So CocoVinny designed, patented, and manufactured exactly what he needed.

The Coco Creativity was born

The CocoTap tool is the only 100 percent Made in USA, BPA Free, and dishwasher-safe coconut water system. Now, CocoVinny can bring CocoTaps coconuts to businesses that are tired of hearing news about plastic in the ocean and an undernourished society. In partnership with businesses that want to see a zero waste future, CocoTaps can retrieve all of the plastic CocoTaps for sterilization and can cycle them back into use. When CocoVinny started working with coconuts it was glaringly obvious what an amazing material the coconut shell provided which is why he wanted to learn how to reuse, upcycle, and compost them in any way he could. We even started Cocos For Kids to educate youth about health for our bodies and health for our planet. The coconut continues to provide in a multitude of ways and we are grateful to share it with our community.

Welcome to our zero-waste beverage adventure.

Cocos for Kids

CocoTaps has partnered with the NV Master Gardeners and extension office to work with youth that have been sentenced with community service.
