KivaHan is named after the world’s first coffee shop that opened in Constantinople (Istanbul), in Turkey 1475.
Coffee was of such great importance then, Turkish law deemed it legal for a woman to divorce her husband if he failed to provide her with her daily cup!
Today, coffee is still just as significant to us at KivaHan. Here, we aim to bring the entire experience that is the coffee roasting process to the every day coffee lover. Our beans are sourced from only the best organic growers from around the world, where they are carefully selected to bring home to you.
We roast on a daily basis which means our beans will always be of the highest quality, whether you’re indulging in house or at home.
We hope to see you soon!
