Kahawa Cafe has been around for about a year now and since opening has been our coffee hotspot, always getting our coffee fix before opening going to work. More people need to pay this Coffee House a visit!! Everything from the espresso shots to lattes and frappes are amazing.

The coffee beans used are really tasty and not at all like Starbucks and Cafe Nero where the coffee can taste too strong or bitter.

Honestly if you haven't given Kahawa Cafe a visit, then do so, you won't like any other coffee after you've tried their vast selection.

Quickly on the decor and staff, we give them both an A+ for effort, cleanliness and hospitality.

This is by far the BEST COFFEE House in COVENTRY. I came here from a recommendation from a friend and it is really a hidden gem!

I was a hardcore Starbucks fan, but since tasting this coffee, the quality and price just do not compare. I ordered a latte and it was so creamy. Apart of the meal deal, everything was so tasty, a nice panini in cold weather and served to me on my table by friendly passionate staff.

The toilets were also spotless. I like that they are looked after and protected by a lock. Great music, great lighting and free wifi.

Beer was cheap too, I will have to come back when I am not at work, £2 a bottle!!!

These guys also do event bookings and I will be using them in the future.

Please support this local business!

Coventry is not the first place that springs to mind when you think of top-notch coffee. However, Kahawa Café is doing its best to change that perception. The first thing that struck me was the sense of space and relaxing atmosphere. Here's a place I could easily spend the afternoon. I suspect that, even when really busy, it wouldn’t feel crowded, such is its uncluttered nature. Free wi-fi, a few power sockets and a lovely big sofa at the back all add to the allure. It also helps that it serves excellent coffee and the cakes are lovely!

What’s really impressive is that Kahawa Café seems to have achieved its success largely through word-of-mouth (and twitter) which says to me that they’re getting things right. If I lived in the area, I’d be in here all the time!
