Kava & Chai opens at Al Seef

August 14, 2018 | By RetailME Bureau

UAE’s home-grown specialty coffeehouse Kava & Chai has announced the opening of its second location at Al Seef, situated on the water front of Dubai Creek. The new location follows the opening of Kava & Chai’s first location earlier this year at American University of Sharjah.

The new location at Al Seef is a destination at the heart of Arabic culture and tradition offering a sense of heritage and nostalgia, where visitors can enjoy a cup of Kava & Chai’s signature tea or coffee on the water’s edge with stunning views of Dubai Creek.

“Through Kava & Chai, we seek to build a home-grown Arab brand of global standards that is inspiring and can portray our culture and traditions in a positive and intimate manner. We want the world to know that coffee roasting and drinking originated in the Middle East, as did the world’s first coffeehouses,” Samer Choucair, vice president of CE-Creates.

The coffeehouse offers a carefully curated menu of coffee and tea to celebrate traditional flavours appealing to both the local population and coffee connoisseurs. Customers can savour a cup of Sao Jose coffee – a single origin coffee with a sugarcane sweetness and nutty chocolate taste that melts like butter in the mouth, served hot or chilled. Or, try the Turkish coffee, prepared in 300-degree sand – the art of coffee making is something Kava & Chai takes seriously.

Kava & Chai brings traditional family recipes and flavours. They have fused the ingredients found on Middle Eastern spice racks and in foodies’ cabinets to make original concoctions with authentic roots. Whether it’s an Aleppo Peppers Turkey sandwich or a Harissa Prawn salad, each recipe celebrates tradition through taste.

However, Kava & Chai isn’t just all about tea and coffee. They’re also committed to promoting sustainable development. From their packaging to uniforms, everything is sourced responsibly, made from renewable materials and recycled efficiency to ensure a better world for future generations.

They also actively seek to work and collaborate with local chefs and artists to promote regional talent and bring back the creative spirit of a traditional coffeehouse. The American University of Sharjah location even features a Hakawati area – a dedicated space for storytellers, poets and musicians to perform regularly.
