About us & our story

AKCO Brand, meaning resonates with the world, was first introduced in 2017.

The “AKCO” name, also pronounced as “echo”, was created by the company founder Max who ingeniously used his wife’s initials AK. Max always believed that our bodies were created and symbolized as sacred temples. He also understands that the human body may perform at its highest when consuming healthy beverages.

Max’s Wife also had the same beliefs. She consumed only water because she never enjoyed unhealthy beverages that were made with sugar. Ever since Max introduced AKCO to his wife, she now found her new favorite drink.

Therefore, Max decided to share it with the world.

AKCO Brand is now the most enjoyable and natural Coconut Water on the market.

Flash pasteurization helps preserve the best natural flavor and nutrients, kill potentially harmful bacteria, and make Vita Coco coconut water shelf-stable for up to 12 months.

What is coconut water?

How can the taste of coconut water be described?

Coconut water has the consistency of regular water, but tastes a bit sweeter.
Texture :
Coconut water is somewhat thick, more than water but not creamy, think maybe of diluted coke or diluted syrup.
Smell :
A fresh coconut will smell sweet and have a clean aroma about it. It is nutty with some anise seed characteristics it is refreshing like mint.
Taste :
First you taste the sweetness then some very little acidity that keeps the liquid refreshing and not heavy. You could drink this like water!

How can you describe the taste of coconut milk?

Unlike coconut water, which is found inside young coconuts, coconut milk is made by grinding the meat of mature coconuts with water, then squeezing the pulp to produce a rich, viscous, opaque “milk” that’s packed with the sweet, floral, nutty flavor of coconut. As an added bonus, it may actually be good for you.

What is Tetra Pak?

Tetra Pak is a BPA-free, eco- and socially-responsible form of packaging made from wood fiber, a sustainable resource. Tetra Pak keeps our coconut water fresh and gives it a shelf life of up to 12 months. For more information, visit www.tetrapak.com.

Does AKCO add sugar to its coconut water?

Yes, a little bit—hear us out! Here’s why: coconuts can vary in taste, so we add less than 1% natural fruit sugar to our non-flavored coconut water. That helps to standardize the taste and sweetness levels regardless of harvest, time of year, or country of origin.

What does “never from concentrate” mean?

Some other brands use coconut water from concentrate—meaning, reconstituted with water and additives before packaging—but, never AKCO. We’re committed to using only the freshest coconut water possible, giving us the right to say we’re never from concentrate!
