aka Coffee was created with the idea that everyone should enjoy coffee effortlessly. Our objective is to reinvent the instant coffee category through a superior product and socially conscious values.
It all started with a problem.
Our founder, David, came up with the idea for Waka Coffee while living in New York City, juggling a hectic schedule as a full-time undergraduate student with a full-time job.
David relied on coffee to fuel his daily routine. However, he quickly discovered that frequenting coffee shops and making coffee in a cramped NYC kitchen was complicated, time-consuming, and expensive. He honed in on a solution that wouldn’t require additional equipment and is fast to make: instant coffee.
Easy to drink isn't easy to create.
While searching for the best instant coffee to power his days, David quickly discovered why people distance themselves from this easy-to-make coffee solution. Most products are made from inferior Robusta beans roasted in huge spray dried batches. This production method – used by traditional instant coffee companies – saves the companies money, but it sacrifices taste.
Waka Coffee sources only 100% Arabica beans instant coffee, which are commonly used in coffee shops, to provide the best taste. Our beans are freeze dried to best preserve the coffee’s aroma and depth of flavor.
We strive to provide only the finest products to help you go through your busy day, and as the company grew, we realized that sometimes you might want tea instead of coffee. This is why we are now also offering quality instant teas as a convenient alternative to our main product lines.
The Waka Coffee way.
Our high quality instant coffee solution provides a simpler coffee experience to fuel your entire day. No more spending money on coffee equipment that occupies valuable kitchen space and waiting for your coffee to brew. We engage directly with fellow coffee lovers to continuously improve our product and make the coffee experience more enjoyable.
Add Water, Give Water.
Waka Coffee is committed to producing less waste and supporting clean water projects. Our instant coffee box is recyclable, and we donate 4% of our profits to sponsor clean water projects around the globe.
As we grow, we promise to expand our impact and engage in social causes that help fuel a healthy planet.
