Kahwa Coffee is one of the original coffee shops in the Sunshine City. The locally owned coffee roaster has grown since its initial debut with an espresso bar just outside the Old Northeast. Kahwa now has locations all over the Tampa Bay region — including a few drive-thru spots. The coffee loving team just announced the new Hope Roast, something entirely different from its other offerings — and it’s all for a good cause.

“We partnered with the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation to create a roast that not only was entirely different from our others but one that will MAKE a difference,” Kahwa owners Raphael and Sarah Perrier said in a release.

Hope Roast is the first coffee to be included in the NPCF’s national Brewing Funds the Cure initiative. It’s Cuban style roast that offers a hint of chocolate with every sip, and its smooth taste and low acidity makes it the perfect way to start any day.

43% of the net proceeds from Hope Roast sales will be donated to National Pediatric Cancer Foundation support life-saving research of pediatric cancer. Why 43%? Because 43 children are diagnosed with cancer each day in the United States.

Bags of Hope Roast can be purchased online on Kahwa’s website.

Kahwa make a strategic partnership to raise funds NPCF

Back in April, Kahwa partnered with Kathy Ireland® Worldwide (kiWW®). The partnership and proceeds from all Kahwa coffee product sales from the partnership will help serve and support the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF), a national nonprofit organization which funds lifesaving research of pediatric cancer.

You can support local daily by visiting any of Kahwa’s 15 locations across the region, or shop it at your local grocery store.
