Published by

In the wellness space, few brands have risen to such superstardom in the last few years as Golde. Cofounders Trinity Mouzon and Issey Kobori started in 2017 by offering a turmeric latte powder blend, and since, they’ve grown their company into a thriving enterprise, amassing thousands of fans along the way.

As a person on the internet, not a day on Instagram goes by without seeing a parade of health-obsessed beauty bloggers effusing about the brand: They don Golde’s face masks made from superfoods like papaya or spirulina; whisk up the company’s matcha powders sourced from Japan; and bake breads and Rice Krispie treats with their versatile latte, collagen, and herbal mushrooms blends. This year, the Black- and AAPI-owned business saw their products take leap off the web and onto the shelves of a Target near you.

Mouzon and Kobori are also just certifiably cool people, so we reached out to the tastemakers to get their take on the things they can't live without.

"Hands down, the best and most indestructible cookware around—ours is about 10 years old and still looks brand new. We use it for everything from stewing chicken to brothy beans."

Staub Enameled Cast Iron Round Dutch Oven

Staub's innovative enamel coating takes cast-iron cooking to the next level with improved performance, style and durability. A heavy lid to seal in moisture paired with heat-retaining cast iron make this oven ideal for slow-cooking homemade chili or a hearty stew.


"Never too hot, always ultra cozy. We love everything Coyuchi for their sustainable sourcing and fabrication, and this duvet doesn’t miss."

Coyuchi Three Season Down Duvet Insert

Combining natural materials with uncompromising quality, our Three Season Down Duvet Insert is a lightweight, lofty, and perfectly cozy layer you can use year round. It’s filled with pure down encased in a down-proof, 100% organic cotton shell. Stitch-through box construction keeps the fill evenly distributed, so you stay perfectly warm right down to your toes. Filled with 600-fill-power down, this dreamy duvet is a warm, fluffy option spring through fall and can be layered with a blanket in winter for excellent temperature control.


"Séka Hills is owned and operated by an indigenous tribe on the West Coast that uses sustainable agriculture methods. Their olive oil is seriously the best, and at $15 a liter when you buy in bulk, it’s an investment very worth making."

Séka Hills 2020 Gallon Arbequina Olive Oil

2020 Harvest. These estate olives were harvested and delivered immediately to our world-class Alpha Laval mill and is available in retail and foodservice packaging. Harmonious and versatile oil with layers of green and ripe fruit with balanced pepperiness, it is an ideal everyday oil, use for sautéing and baking, in salad dressings, marinades, and for dipping and drizzling.


"Minna has been a stockist of ours forever, but they also carry an array of gorgeous housewares. We love these napkins (woven in Guatemala) to dress up our everyday meals."

Minna Sunrise Stripe Napkins

The sunrise napkins are the perfect addition to your dining table. Woven by a man named Manuel in the village of Nahuala.


"Yesfolk is best known for their kombucha (which is always on hand), but we’re also big fans of this body butter. It’s a simple, unscented blend that’s perfect on hair, body, and face."

Yesfolk Body Butter

A smooth and nourishing blend of organic oils and local beeswax. Use freely on face, hair and all over your body for soft and supple skin. The richness of sesame oil, olive oil, cacao butter and beeswax act as a protective layer and keep moisture in. This is a family recipe that has been developed over several years to become a staple in our personal self-care practice.


"We love, love, love our Big Berkey. The system has a cult following for good reason—friends always mock us for this until they taste how deliciously fresh the water is! It’s also more sustainable and way cheaper than a Brita in the long run."

Big Berkey Water Filter

As the most popular Berkey system—mostly due to the fact that it's a perfect size for 2-4 people—the Big Berkey Water Filter is constructed of highly polished 304 stainless steel and comes with two Black Berkey purification elements (expandable to four), plus two chambers, two blocking plugs, a lid, spigot, and a rubber gasket base. Up to four PF-2 Fluoride and Arsenic filters can be installed into the lower chamber.


"This toothpaste uses traditional Ayurvedic herbs in its formula to deliver a brushing experience that’s herbal and effective, not saccharine and excessively minty. Of all the natural toothpastes, we always come back to this one."

Auromere Herbal Toothpaste

Auromere's highly effective line of Ayurvedic toothpaste combines the natural tooth-whitening fiber PEELU with the astringent and invigorating properties of NEEM and 24 other barks roots plants and flowers which have been esteemed for centuries by Ayurvedic specialists for maintaining optimum dental hygiene. The all-natural botanical extracts and essential oils in Auromere Toothpaste are prized for their astringent purifying and soothing properties that help freshen breath and leave teeth feeling squeaky clean. In addition Auromere Toothpaste contains no fluoride gluten artificial sweeteners dyes preservatives or harsh chemicals commonly found in many toothpastes.


"This shower filter removes minerals and excess chlorine from your tap for shinier hair and balanced skin."

AquaBliss Multi-Stage Shower Filter

Revitalize, rejuvenate, and refresh your natural beauty with the AquaBliss high output water shower filter, nicknamed the “beauty filter” for how it effectively reduces the chlorine, dirt, scale, and odors linked to dry, itchy skin, eczema, pustules, and acne—so your skin, hair, and nails grow stronger and glow.


"We use our Superwhisk every day to make super-frothy lattes at home. It’s conveniently travel friendly too, so we don’t have to give up our afternoon matcha routine while on the go."

Golde Superwhisk

Meet your latte's new best friend. Superwhisk is a USB-rechargeable whisk that instantly froths your favorite superfood lattes to perfection. Handheld and rechargeable, so it goes wherever you do.


"We finally invested in a proper dining table (after five years with the one we picked up off of Craigslist), and it’s been such a game changer. This one is the perfect size to fit a few friends without feeling excessive for just the two of us."

Case Kigumi Table

Named for a traditional Japanese joinery technique in which masterfully created interlocking wooden joints are used to form bonds, the understated Kigumi Table (2020) reflects Nazanin Kamali’s conviction that a casual dining table needs to be simple, have a small footprint, and be suitable for everyday use. It features a top with chamfered edge for comfort and durability and a solid wood base with intersecting supports that provide stability and a visually pleasing profile. Made in Lithuania.


"Coasters are so much easier to remember to use when you love the look."

Graf Lantz Bierfilzl Square Coaster Felt Solid 4 Pack

Our traditional Bierfilzl (or "Beer Felt") are the highest quality German merino wool felt coasters on the market today. Their clean and minimal execution offers an unexpected textural and refined modern heritage element to any home decor.
