ABOUT US

At MAVI’s Commbucha, we are brewing some fizzy, energising and refreshing booch-love for you. Basically, MAVI’s Commbucha is handcrafted fermented tea which apart from having a long list of amazing health benefits, also keeps your taste buds tickling making it perfect for social drinking, as a non-alcoholic beverage as well as a mixer. From the beginning, we have ensured that we keep the experimentation and innovation going, so we offer a wide variety of perennial and seasonal flavours like plums, oranges, watermelon, the list goes on, we have something for every kind of palate!

As our name suggests, we believe in a strong sense of community, in fact, that’s our vision- we do not look at Kombucha as only a beverage, we look at it as something that symbolises a sustainable way of living, and that’s the community we are building, a community of people who take ownership of the change they want to see in themselves and the world around them. We are no preachers, but we strongly believe in conscious living and taking small actions in our own capacity to preserve the environment around us. At times, we have felt confused and overwhelmed as to where to begin because the world is such a complex and interconnected place but over a period of time we have found our own little ways to do our part about the issues we care for, for instance, finding alternatives to plastic or being more conscious about the source of our food. This is also reflective in the way we produce Kombucha, we procure all our raw material from local farmers and farmer’s market who are spread across the country. We are building a community of like-minded people who are exploring ways of making a difference in their own capacities.

Come and join our community of booch-addicts, this latest season, MAVI’s Commbucha is coming!

Our Story

Well, one fine day, Vikram and Mashi were spending some chill time with their friends in the US when Mashi decided to try out some Kombucha that their friends brewed at home. That’s where the Booch-addiction started! They got some culture back to India (LITERALLY!) and started brewing it here, everybody in their family loved it. However, they never thought of taking it up professionally. Encouraged by all the appreciation, in March this year, they finally decided to put up a stall at a farmers market in Mumbai. To their surprise, they were sold-out the very first day. From then on, they have never looked back!

Vikram and Mashi envision MAVI’s Commbucha as India’s representative for Kombucha and sustainable living. They believe that Kombucha should become a part of our culture, a healthy alternative to all the two-minute solutions!


About the Founders

MASHI & VIKRAM

Mashi is someone who has always lived life by her rules, in her unique, unapologetic manner. We see her embracing challenges with absolute ease and giving every situation her own colour. A natural risk taker, when asked how this journey of brewing and stirring is going for her, she said, “One place where I did not want to be was in the kitchen but as it turns out, I am enjoying it!” Exactly like Kombucha, Mashi comes in many avatars- a friend, partner in crime, boss-lady, activist and dog-lover. Around her, there is never a dull moment and she ensures keeping all the values of community and leadership absolutely intact with love, empathy and creativity!

The first thought that comes to mind when we think of Vikram is the Iron Throne from GoT,  because that’s how he looks at life- full of thrilling and exciting experiences. Other than talking about his love for Kombucha and Mashi, in his free time, he is always on a look-out to do something new. He was backpacking solo much before the trend caught up in India, one day, you find him learning horse-riding and then on another, he treats you with some amazing home-baked bread. In his own words, “Jo baaki sab kar rahe hain, vahin karoge toh kya mazza hai?” His entrepreneurial spirit of doing something new and his passion for health is what keeps his mind buzzing with all kinds of ideas at MAVI’s Commbucha.

Together, these two different yet complementing energies brew magic!
