The Story

We have been making "Signs and Wonders" Peanutmilk for our customers at KK Cafe in San Francisco and beyond since 1999.  We discovered the recipe by accident.  Jack suffered from gum disease so painful he couldn't eat solid food and was experimenting with ways to eat his favorite snack - peanuts.  As his health improved from driniking the peanutmilk others became curious and asked if they could try it, too.  We have been making 70 gallons a week in our cafe for 15 years now, and selling out.  The walls at KK Cafe was filled with testimonials from customers who said they benefited from our peanutmilk, and we now want to expand our operation to make it available in a broader scale.  We know we can do it! Between 2004 and 2007 we mass-produced and distributed 2,500 gallons of peanutmilk per week to outlets including Whole Foods, Mollie Stone's Market and Rainbow Grocery.  The business flourished but we did not own the means of production, and after we ended our relationship with our corporate partner due to a disagreement over some of its business practices, we couldn't go it alone.  After 24 years in the same San Francisco neighborhood, rising rent forced us to close our beloved KK Cafe.  But we want to continue to provide peanutmilk to our loyal customers as well as a whole lot of potential new ones.  With your help, we will buy the equipment we need to mass produce and bottle "Signs and Wonders" Peanutmilk to the highest safety standards, and lease a space that  can accommodate our effort.  We know the drill and the distribution networks to get it to our customers.  And, after working 12 hour days, 7 days a week, 363 days a year, for nearly 25 years, we know we have the work ethic to be a sucess! We welcome and are grateful for your support.
