The Story of Young Kobras - A Gluten-Free Sourdough Bakery in the San Francisco Bay Area

Co-owners Juliana and Geoff share a passion for healthy food: they've both spent countless hours preparing delicious and nutritious meals with friends and family. In addition, both co-owners believe in the importance of sustainable practices throughout the food system from farm to table. These values define Young Kobras mission to produce healthy foods made with sustainable, low-impact organic ingredients that are good for your body and the earth.

The company originated from home kitchen experiments, and a determination to develop a new type of bread made with simple healthy ingredients, and that’s it. Since baking that first loaf of gluten-free sourdough bread our recipe and product line continue to grow. We strive to enhance our products through ingredient research, regular recipe development, and customer feedback.

Welcome to our toasty slice of heaven!

The Humans Behind the Bread


Geoff Kober

Juliana Lopker

Chief Evangelist / Co-owner
Juliana has cultivated a long and diverse history of eating things. Being able to help others eat things too brings her abundant joy. She hopes you love YK bread as much as she does!
