Our story... 1 year in the making

Strolls down the streets of New York gave birth to a dream, a dream of creating a brand, a brand that people wanted to be a part of, and experience on a daily basis, much like the cafes of Soho and Little Italy
Cool summer mornings on the hustling streets of Little Italy, with a cortado in hand, sitting on the pavement with enough time to simply be... it was beautiful!

Once I landed back home in South Africa, it was time to make the dream a reality, and a hashtag I had used to share my coffee adventures abroad, #CaffeineKungFu, morphed into a little more than a hashtag and became a business.

Thinus and James hold their finished product for the first time, our packaging has come a fair way since then...
Our first stockists were a hip and happening coffee shop in Potchefstroom called Toro. This was a massive step and we're still proud to be supplying them regularly with some Kung Fu power!
"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do".

After reading that qoute, feeling inspired and perhaps a bit silly, we emptied our bank account, called Druff Interactive and started the process of designing a packaging we'd be proud of and love to see on the shelves

This was the result of plenty breakfast meetings with Business Print and Druff, we couldn't be happier!

Our branding now has taken the form of a beautifully designed box that neatly nestles a 50g pack of Coffee beans, coated in a 50% cocoa chocolate

We've shared the love nearly 1000 times as our first full batch of produce nears it's end, we can't belive our small dream has taken it's first baby steps forward...

As our adventure continues, we encourage you to join us, share your coffee moments, your favorite places to visit and the adventures our beans fuel...

We'll see you soon, until then though, choose your own adventure, drink good coffee and crunch on a yummy twist to how you'd usually think of a caffeine fix. #CaffeineKungFu
