Welcome to Café Kawakami
Named for the meme token, Kawakami, we are proud to be the world’s first premium coffee store built by an NFT and crypto community.
You don't need to know a thing about cryptocurrencies, though, to enjoy our delicious coffees!
First and foremost we are purveyors of what we hope will become your favorite morning, afternoon, or even grinding-at-midnight brew. Our beans are carefully sourced, bringing together rich artisanal flavors from around the world for the perfect cup, with each order freshly roasted on the day it’s shipped to you.
The Meme Is The Start...
To understand Café Kawakami's mission, it helps to begin with KAWA, the cryptocurrency.
KAWA is an ERC20 token built on the Ethereum blockchain. Its team is fully doxxed and the contract Certik audited, with multi-sig wallets and liquidity locked for 100 years. We're also prepping to drop our Gen 0 NFT Collection with 4446 pieces in June.
Does the above sound like word salad to you? No worries, we have a tl;dr primer for newbies. You'll be crypto savvy in no time.
Already know your way around a CEX, DEX, and/or NFTs? We have you covered with two, yes, two whitepapers on our projects.
Of The Journey...
The Kawakami community has a passion for coffee.
It's not hard to see why. Crypto is a global phenomenon, crossing every time zone. Whether you're minting an NFT in Denver at 5 am, or watching $KAWA trading charts deep into the night in Dubai, you need fuel to keep you going.
However, Kawa team member William Reynolds, who brainstormed the concept for Café Kawakami, has a special affinity for coffee and a unique story to tell about this project's origins.
From $Kawa to Coffee
Our ultimate goal with Café Kawakami is to bring utility to cryptocurrency and NFTs, bridging the gap between the digital and real worlds. We plan to enable NOWpayments in the store to allow you to pay for your coffee with most major cryptos, including $KAWA.
We're also exploring the concept of Coffee Club NFTs, providing loyal Café customers access to special deals and merchandise.
Perhaps most important for $KAWA holders, proceeds from Café Kawakami go towards buying back $KAWA. If you hold $KAWA, you benefit yourself and others when drinking our coffee, which explains what we mean by Roasted Beans = Burned $KAWA.
Where Does the Journey Lead Next?
One of the best things about a community-driven project is that members can share how they want the project to move forward. Lend your voice to discussions by joining the Kawa family on our Discord. To have a stake in those discussions, add some $KAWA tokens to your crypto wallet or collect our NFTs!
