Project Description

Fantastic news! I got the keys to my new shop on Dec. 1, and I'm experiencing a very warm welcome from my neighbors and fellow small business owners in the Sixth Avenue Business District and Tacoma at large. 

I got the KEYS!

I'm just shy of the 50% mark on my crowdfunding campaign, counting ALL sources of contributions. Thank you for embracing the KoKo concept and for believing in its vibrant impact! 

With just two weeks left in the campaign, I'm making THREE wishes:

1. Give - and give AGAIN - if you can. Venmo is best (see below for my PayPal woes); even a $5 gift gets me closer to my crowdfunding goal. 

2. Buy Komadre Kombucha digital gift cards for everyone on your holiday shopping list. Text @komadre to the number 81010 and I'll personally ensure that your digital gift cards are processed in plenty of time to stuff those stockings.

3. Shop KoKo's Amazon wish list to purchase the gear, gadgets and "geegaws" that the kombuchería needs to be successful (and super cute!). https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/I9WY68Y22DUR?ref_=wl_share

Muchísimas gracias, y'all. xoJD

Komadre Kombucha is a Latina owned and operated company producing non-alcoholic, fruit-forward kombucha tea in vibrant tropical flavors. Featuring flavors of Latin America, we pour vitality, connection and loving kindness into everything we do – for you!

This unique kombucha tea line began as a home kitchen science project. Seeking an alternative to sugary sodas and alcoholic beverages, founder Julie Davidson started making her own decaf black tea with fresh-pressed juice ingredients. Fueled by her quest for greater vitality and her passion for creating community, Julie will establish a gathering place in Tacoma, WA.

KoKo will welcome guests to a warm, inviting community space that celebrates the best non-alcoholic craft beverages our region offers, and offers healthy accompaniments inspired by Latinx cuisine.

A growing number of customers are seeking healthier alternatives to sugary sodas, high-octane energy drinks and alcoholic beverages typically served in cafes, restaurants, bars and taprooms.  

KoKo’s handcrafted small batch kombucha tea, novel non-alcoholic refreshments, organic juices and other selections create an exciting, tasty and beneficial beverage experience to enjoy via doorstep delivery, as “grab and go,” or in a welcoming community space.

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What is Kombucha anyway?
    • Kombucha is tea that is fermented naturally with a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY). Its health properties include ample amounts of probiotics associated with gut health and immunity boosting. 
  • Will KoKo continue its door delivery service?
    • YES! We look forward to continuing to provide you with personalized, door delivery service of Komadre Kombucha tea and accompaniments.
  • How will my financial contribution be utilized?
    • Your generous support will fund necessary equipment purchases and upgrades, renovation of KoKo's new storefront and brew space, marketing and other professional services, and all the other startup costs associated with this exciting venture.
  • Has KoKo already raised any funds?
    • YES! KoKo has successfully raised funds in the form of a federal Covid-19 Relief Loan, some of which will be "forgivable." More funding is needed to ensure KoKo's financial sustainability in the critical first years of our expansion.
    • PayPal will charge a fee for every transaction on ifw, so please donate via Venmo - KoKo's handle is @julie-davidson-group. We also accept cash and check donations.
  • I'm out of region - out of state. How can I try KoKo?
    • We would love to have you visit us in person to try a pour of Komadre Kombucha. Circumstances being as they are, we are investigating the possibility of one day offering shipping for our products. Stay tuned, and enjoy all of the other incentives we are offering our backers.
