Awa Na Kava started in the back half of a vitamin store in October 2010. “I wanted to serve smooth tasting cold kava at a reasonable price. The much fewer kava bars that existed back then were serving traditional kava only. Traditional kava is our staple but we wanted to experience with flavor. Many new customers were so put off but the taste of kava that more often than not their first kava would be their last.
We wanted to change the first timers experience by adding flavors. We started with only two flavor but now we have dozens of kava drink flavors.
