Welcome to Makomas! I am Magbè Savané, President and Founder of Makomas. I started Makomas in 2011 for three simple but compelling reasons.

  • I love making the beverages I fondly remember from my childhood in West Africa.
  • These traditional drinks are delicious, and should be enjoyed worldwide.
  • I couldn’t wait to share with my adopted country, this specialty from Cote d’Ivoire, my birth country.

Makomas may sound like an African name, but it is actually an acronym formed by combining my name, Magbè, with that of my husband, Kolo,our oldest son, Malick, ending with the initial letter of my family name, Savané.
