About Kuka

PEOPLE

We’re three old school friends brought together by our love for music, exploration and coffee. We’ve shared many highs and lows as we explored, endured and enjoyed many adventures throughout the years. In 2016, we set out on a mission to make speciality coffee more accessible to everyone, and change the world of instant coffee for good. We’ve created exciting new flavours that can be enjoyed without the wait, and without ever compromising our ethical approach. Our expeditions over seas to various continents only cemented an already ingrained passion for flavour. Powered by quality cold brew every step of the way, we developed our respect for people and the planet. After years of travelling and working together, we created Kuka: a concept born to express our passion for great produce, people and places.

 

PROCESS

Our products are all brewed and packaged on the farm in Herefordshire. We combine Rainforest Alliance, single-origin, speciality grade coffee with triple filtered Herefordshire spring water from the spring next to the brewery. The combination of high quality ingredients results in a beautifully pure, finished product packed with natural flavour. We steep the coffee for 20 hours without heating, to gently extract the natural sweetness found in quality coffee. Then we use a top-of-the-line cross flow filter to give our coffee its rich clarity and perfect mouth feel. Hand packing at the farm on the same day as brewing ensures only the freshest coffee is bottled, right there and then.

 

PRODUCT

We make drinks without compromise. We call our ready-to-drink brew, Smalls; never obtrusive until you need it, handy when you can’t afford to wait. It stays perfectly fresh until the moment you crack it open- then you can expect notes of chocolate to sing over the intense and punchy profile before easing off into a clear, citrusy finish. When you’re at home with time to spare, reach for our espresso strength Cold Brew Concentrate: the first of its kind in the UK, it’s incredibly versatile - distilling the same signature flavours into an artisanal ingredient that elevates coffee at home to the highest standard.
