Karma Cola's original recipe combines real cola nut from the Boma village in Sierra Leone with natural spices; cinnamon, nutmeg and coriander with lemon, lime and orange oils, vanilla bean grown by the Forest Garden Growers Association in Sri Lanka and organically grown and processed sugar cane from the Suminter Organic Farmers Consortium in Maharashtra India.
We use organic malt extract for flavor and colour instead of artificial colouring, preservatives or phosphoric acid (a cheap chemical ingredient that adds acidity to conventional cola and is good for removing rust).
WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND
Our cola is grown by farmers like Idrisa Bonah & Mustapha Sesay (pictured). In addition to paying farmers a fair price, All Good Organics are working directly with cola nut farmers in the Boma village in Sierra Leone, to help rebuild their crops and their communities in the aftermath of war.
Part of the proceeds from the sale of every bottle of Karma Cola goes back to the people of Boma and Naiahun to invest in community projects. Funds from sales of Karma Cola have already helped to build a bridge to connect two parts of the village that couldn't be crossed easily, and are sending 15 young girls to school. Even more projects are planned for the coming year.
With Karma Cola what goes around really does come around. Every time you drink it, part of the proceeds from each bottle sold will go back to the Boma Village in Sierra Leone. This will help to build a fresh water well, processing centre and store for crops, and help to buy tools to rehabilitate the cola plantations to help the Mende people to grow and sell more cola nut.
The design of the Karma Cola bottle blends African imagery with the Eastern idea of karma and the western idea of ‘cola’. The blue and red iconic design represents the African water spirit, Mami Wata, who embodies both good and evil.
