Kahwa launches new Cuban style Hope Roast to raise money for Pediatric Cancer Foundation

Kahwa Coffee is one of the original coffee shops in the Tampa Bay region. The locally owned coffee roaster has grown since its initial debut with an espresso bar in St. Petersburg. Kahwa now has 15 locations — 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,” Kahwaowners Raphael and Sarah Perrier said in a release.

The first coffee to be in NPCF’s funds for the cure initiative

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 to 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.

Partnering with nonprofits for a good cause

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.
