The Karma Project

Coffee is fuel for stories. So we decided to buy coffee for strangers and document their stories. Why?


So many people have helped bring Zip Cup to life, often for free. We've been blown away by the time and resources that people have contributed to Zip Cup.

Here's just ONE example: We called the front desk at frog design, inc. a leading global innovation firm, and asked for help. The person at the front desk connected us with one of their design pros, who suggested an excellent mechanical engineer and even gave us some material selection advice. For free.

Now it's time to give send some karma back out to the universe.

With the help of friends across North America, we're buying coffee for strangers. We'll gather their stories (in the form of their favorite coffee memory) and share them with you here.
