The dream of multiplying a magic drink, became a plan, to be now a reality with a great challenge! Let's dream together for a better world!

A dream comes true, as long as we believe in it ! This is our mantra.... We believe in the transforming power of the Kombucha Universe and its ability to promote more positive, conscious and healthy habits.

We dream of a world with less soft drinks and more Kombuchas, less preservatives and more life, less plastics and more nature. We fight for a more natural and less artificial world.

We were born at a time when the challenge could not be greater: March 2020, the start of Covid in Portugal and the first quarantine!

Obstacles made us stronger and since then, we have been following a constant evolutionary process ! Allied to external challenges, which were not few, other internal well-known for the “growing pains” of any business have appeared to us.

The campaign was designed with the objective of solving our current problem, which boils down to the fact that we have not yet reached a balance between revenue and costs. But we are almost there! In order to achieve financial sustainability, we need to increase our production capacity.

We set up this crowdfunding, as it was the best way we found, within our realities, to make our next step feasible. Therefore, your support and help will be essential for us to continue our dream with the purpose of creating a better world.

We've created some prizes to make everything more fun and interactive, but you can also make donations or simply share this campaign and help us spread the word about the Good Drink! Thank you very much!

About the author

My name is Gonçalo Campos, I'm 28 years old and I was born in Portugal, but I grew up in Rio de Janeiro.

It was in Rio where I started working, for the first time, after graduating in Business Management.
I worked for more than 4 years at the best communication company in Brazil, but always with a clear dream to fulfill: traveling around the world .

It was on this magical journey where I met the Kombucha Universe! After 3 years traveling I gained inspiration to live a new dream : to return to the country where I was born to multiply the drink of Good .

In September 2019 I returned to Portugal with the challenge of turning a dream into reality.

We created a special Kombucha after 6 months of many tests and feedback from our supporters, and we also developed the Kombucha Kit with the mission to multiply the Kombucha culture and its benefits . So far, we've helped almost 1000 people to start their own production at home :)

And that's how we started and that's how we continued, growing organically, with your support and a lot of persistence.
