Kahwa Coffee wins Creative Loafing’s Best of the Bay!

A big congratulations to Kahwa coffee for snagging Creative Loafing’s Best of the Bay award for “Best Local Java,” at the Loafies last night!

The write up in the paper that hit the stands this morning is as follows:

Kahwa Coffee
Downtown St. Petersburgers knows where to go for a caffeine fix, or when they’re in the mood to browse the Sunday paper over a latte and a croissant (and it doesn’t start with an ‘S’). Kahwa is a local business that cares about quality and the community, roasting the beans at its facility in St. Pete and serving fresh brews at their two hip downtown locations. Kahwa’s signature blends are slightly sweet without being overly bitter, and the prices are hard to beat for the quality of product served. 475 Second St. N, 727-823-4700; 204 Second Ave S, 727-821-1942,

Want to serve the Bay Area’s best java? Buy Kahwa Coffee exclusively from TBS

If bohemian hip could come in a cup, it would most certainly be a Kahwa espresso.

With French roots, two locations buzzing with activity in the heart of trendy downtown St. Petersburg, walls covered with subversive local art, and a nomination for a slot with Creative Loafing’s Best of the Bay, Kahwa Cafe pretty much has cool on lockdown.

Kahwa roasts locally, hand-crafting five meticulous blends with beans from South America, Africa, and a rare Indian sweet bean you won’t find in any other blend here in the States.

If St. Pete isn’t within your commutable range, fret not.  Kahwa has recently decided to sign an exclusive distributor contract with none other than yours truly.  TBS is working hand-in-hand with owner Raphael Perrier to bring Kahwa to cafes around the nation.
