CAP·SAI·CIN owner and founder David Bell loves chiles. He lovingly grows every pepper that goes into his hot sauce and ground chile powder. Magma Powder and Smoky Disturbance bring heat with heart to your table. 

For the past 15 years, David Bell has devoted his time to perfecting a hot sauce that brings eccentric flavor and spice to your meal. Using locally grown peppers from the Livingston community garden, he can create perfect sauces and spices that add the flavor your dish has been missing.



Local artist Dave Bell has created a three hot sauces and a dry version that can be sprinkled onto food.

His sauce, aptly called Smoky Disturbance, is a small batch condiment that has delightful flavors and plenty of capsaicin. Smoky Disturbance is made from peppers that Dave Bell grows, dries, lightly smokes, and carefully grinds and then expertly mixes with pomegranate molasses. It can be described as a perfect balance of smoky, fruity, sweet, and salty. Smoky Disturbance is available either mild or hot.


Capsaicin Magma Powder is a dry version meant for sprinkling. Dave combines the ground chilies with a coarse gray French sea salt, sel gris.
