Coffee was first discovered in the wild in Ethiopia in the Kaffa region. The Turkish name given to coffee, “kahve” evolved to “qahwa” in Arabic. The spelling differs according to the different countries but Kahwa is the original name for coffee throughout Africa. It evolved to café (in French) or caffe (in Italian) and remains common slang for coffee in France.
Proudly roasted in Tampa Bay, Kahwa Coffee focuses on blends over single origin coffees in order to bring complex flavors to each cup. We only select 100% Arabica beans of the highest quality from all over the world that are roasted and packaged on demand to guarantee freshness. We're extremely proud of our unique coffee blends and know that anyone can find one or more suited to his or her tastes.
Blends are named after winds from different regions of the world.
