Nakamalathome.com was formed in 2002 as an outlet to sell off our excess kava supply from our kava bar "The Nak" in order to keep our kava supply as fresh as possible. Over the years we have seen an increased demand for our products and we have subsequently increased our stock for online sales and run it as a seperate business with its own supply so we are less likely to run out of stock of kava. We do run out of one type of kava or another from time to time but it is becoming less frequent. We would rather wait for the fresh kava than buy whatever is available.
We currently buy kava from Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and Tonga. We buy kava from these islands because we are able to source kava directly from the farmers and have it shipped to our warehouse in the USA.
Here are the people that get your kava to you:
