TPA and Water Street land new locally-owned coffee shops

Two business owners and the mayor stand outside a new airport coffee shop

Kahwa just keeps on growing. The locally-owned and operated coffee shop began with just one location in downtown St. Petersburg. Since its inception more than a decade ago, the coffee concept from Raphael and Sarah Perrier has spanned myriad locations across Tampa Bay, and created hundreds of jobs. Now you can enjoy Kahwa in TPA, and in the always developing Water Street District.

Kahwa announced its new location at the TPA Marriott. Tampa Mayor Jane Castor joined the owners to celebrate the location’s official launch. Now travelers on the go for an early flight can make Kahwa Coffee, one of finest Tampa Bay success stories, before departing the region.

The coffee roaster also now has a presence at the new USF Medical Center at Water Street. Water Street Cafe Espresso Bar is open 24/7 at 560 Channelside Drive.

The concept is powered by CBK Catering and features coffee roasted by Kahwa Coffee.

The cafe is located on the 2nd Floor of the USF Morsani College of Medicine and Heart Institute, and overlooks Sparkman Wharf — which is set to get a brand new authentic Italian restaurant this year.


Kahwa operates across Tampa Bay including the International Mall.
