Unlike other fizzy drinks, Karma Cola is a delicious craft cola made with real cola nut and the best organic and Fairtrade ingredients. Its original recipe combines cola nut from the Boma village in Sierra Leone with vanilla bean from the Forest Garden Growers Association in Sri Lanka and Fairtrade organic cane sugar from the Suminter Organic Farmers Cooperative in Bhimanagar India.
Named ‘The World’s Fairest Trader’ in 2014 by Fairtrade International, Karma Cola is making a big difference for a small village in Sierra Leone, rebuilding itself in the aftermath of war as the community directly benefits from the proceeds. Funds from sales of the soft drink have already helped to build a bridge to connect two villages and are sending 15 young girls to school.
more projects are planned for the coming year.
The cola tastes unlike any cola I've had before, but in a good way, as it is an array of spicey and warm with a slight bitterness. Definitely a sweeter cola, but not the sweetest our there. It is really very pleasing and uniquely refreshing to drink.
There are only real ingredients used with no preservatives or phosphoric acid.
The Karma Cola range extends beyond just cola: Gingerella Ginger Ale and Lemony Lemonade - both these flavours are made using the best fair trade and organic ingredients, sourced from around the word. I loved the Gineralla ginger ale, it is crisp and spicy and tastes delicious. And the Lemony Lemonade was refreshing and rich flavour.
The Karma Cola range is available to buy in Waitrose stores nationwide and Waitrose.com.
