A few facts about Trail Mix that you may not have known✨

1. Trail mix is a combination of dried fruit, grains, nuts, and sometimes chocolate, developed as a snack food to be taken along on outdoor hikes.

2. Trail mix is considered an ideal snack food for hikes, because it is tasty, lightweight, easy to store, and nutritious, providing a quick boost from the carbohydrates in the dried fruit and/or granola, and sustained energy from the mono- and polyunsaturated fats in nuts.

3. Many claim that trail mix was first invented in 1968 by two California surfers who blended peanuts and raisins together for an energy snack.

4. However, trail mix is also mentioned in Jack Kerouac’s 1958 novel The Dharma Bums as the two main characters describe their planned meals in their preparation for a hiking trip.

5. The recipe for trail mix is most likely European in origin, where it has been known as a snack under various names in various countries since the 17th century.

Cafe Kumbuk Sugar, Spice and all things nice Trail Mix is available to purchase in pouches - via our online store www.KumbukPantry.com 💛

Our Story

In August 2015, after having graduated from university in London with a degree in Creative Advertising, I moved back to Sri Lanka in an effort to realize my entrepreneurial dream. In March 2016, together with the help of my mum Dinali – we were able to make the Café Kumbuk concept a reality.

Kumbuk is the name of a tree commonly found in Sri Lanka - beautiful, standing tall and providing shade from the tropical heat. Café Kumbuk offers affordable, easy-going food to a small crowd of 30, with a focus on using locally sourced produce and crafting recipes that are geared towards healthy living.

Café Kumbuk operates on three main principles. Firstly, our affordability should be stressed. Secondly, the food has to be fresh, healthy and authentic, so we have made a commitment of sourcing fresh ingredients from local suppliers and saying no to the bad stuff including refined white sugar and artificial flavour enhancers. Lastly, we have invested heavily in making sure that every guest has the best customer experience when choosing to dine with us.

Aside from the food and customer service, interior design plays an important role at Café Kumbuk. Inspired by Sri Lankan design aesthetic, we decorated our space with rustic wooden tables, palms and succulents, maps and photographs of Sri Lanka, vintage light fittings and a counter with an outer panel made of our namesake wood, Kumbuk. The result was an inviting ambiance full of culture and home like spirit.
