Business offers free coffee today

Kahwa Coffee Roasting will hold its grand opening today by offering free coffee from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Kahwa has been roasting coffee in its Childs Park headquarters for two years, collecting chef and restaurant clients in the Tampa Bay area and up and down the East Coast. Earlier this year the owners decided to open a retail outlet downtown and bought a commercial condominium in the 475 building at 475 Second St. N at Fifth Avenue N. Kahwa, from the Ethiopian word for coffee, is "for the coffee aficionado, just coffee and pastries, no food," said owner Raphael Perrier, who, like partners Catherine and Jean Thibault, is from France. The final partner is Perrier's wife, Sarah, nee Irwin, who is from St. Petersburg. Visit kahwacoffee.com or call 823-4700.
