Kar.ma | Cause & Effect
“All our actions create reactions and influence lives”
kar.ma COFFEE is a journey born out of a passion for coffee. It envisions a coffee experience that is based on respect and appreciation for the people (their culture and traditions) and nature. It showcases the journey from crop to cup and beyond.
All our beans are Arabica beans, 100 % organic, handpicked and hand processed. We source our beans direct from small cooperatives in Nepal and work closely with the local farmers, to help to improve their livelihoods.We believe in recycling and up-cycling.
We reuse all coffee wastage and coffee by- products like filter paper, chaffs and coffee ground to make cosmetics, lamp shades, paper, and much more. Our products are designed by us and created by local artisans and small businesses, using local materials.
We encourage and empower women to gain skills and become financially independent. Our wooden accessories are made by female carpenters/ wood turners from Kokhana.We try to keep our carbon footprint low.
Almost all hand brewing equipment are made in Nepal. The brew stations are made of Mango wood, only the trees that don’t yield and hence offer no more income to the farmers. Our kettles are influenced by the traditional use of brass/copper in Nepali households.No electric machines are used. It is not about speed.
Drinking coffee is a ritual. It allows one slow down for a few minutes, engage in conversations, appreciate the moment. Be in the present.
It’s not just about coffee, it is all about coffee. Join the journey|
