Having triumphantly conquered LA, New York and Melbourne, the cold-pressed juice concept has made its way to Sydney with founder Leo Pegoli and health expert Natasha Waters. Pressed Juice offers its freshly pressed juice combos as a nutrient-dense alternative to your caffeine hit, as a one-off or as part of a cleanse programme – and the concept is already being enthusiastically embraced here.
Pressed Juices use a high-pressure hydraulic press to squeeze every drop of liquid from select raw fruit, herbs and vegetables. The juice is then bottled and sold fresh on the day. This cold press method is said to deliver a ‘live’ drink, with the enzymes, vitamins and minerals (the richest elements of the produce) still intact.
"Juicing daily, to me, is an act of self-appreciation. Pressed juice is the ultimate delivery system of nutrients to the body,” says Pegoli.
The Pressed Juices store in Crown Street, Surry Hills sells a wide range of juices and smoothie-style drinks, and like the three stores in Melbourne, is managed by a qualified nutritionist. It also offers an online ordering and delivery service.
