My Favorite Green Juice Recipe: Jack Mazzola


The founder of Jack’s Stir Brew Coffee isn't a bit jittery—he meditates, runs, and sips tons of green juice. Here's the blend the New Yorker makes at home.

Think coffee belongs to the jittery, stressed, over-tired New York set? You haven’t met Jack Mazzola, the cool-as-a-cucumber founder of Jack’s Stir Brew Coffee who blends java and wellness together seamlessly in his wildly popular New York coffee shops and his own life.

Mazzola meditates 30–45 minutes every day (he prefers the Qigong method), strength trains four days a week, and runs about 80 miles a month. All of these habits help the coffee-preneur stay pretty chill. “That and I meditate before I drink my coffee,” he says. Noted.

He’s also a big fan—and passionate purveyor—of cold-pressed juices, which he serves alongside his organic, fair trade coffee to busy Manhattanites and Amagansett surfers alike.

While he can often be found sipping a Mr. Green from his cafes, when at home Mazzola’s got a mean Blendtec machine that he uses to make his own green drinks. Here’s his go-to recipe right now.—Jamie McKillop

Sweet Christine

2 bunches romaine hearts
A palm’s worth of cilantro
Healthy fist full spinach
1/2 Fuji apple
1/2 Bartlett pear
Juice from 1/2 a squeezed lemon
Bottled water to taste (I like Mountain Valley)

Blend and enjoy. This recipe gives you a glass full to start the day and the remaining can go into glass mason jars—good for three days, no more.
