BULA COCOA BEACH is the third Kava Bar, under BULA NATION, INC. The Original Kava Bar and Coffee House located in St. Petersburg, Florida called BULA KAFE, was established in 2009 but did not change owners until 2014 to become the 1st Kava Bar under BULA NATION Inc. BULA KAFE comes with years of experience, as the original owner a native to the motherland of Kava; Vanuatu an island located in The South Pacific. The second store was a dream the owner had, to open a Kava Bar on the beach so he could catch the sunset every day over the Gulf Of Mexico. His wish came true in 2015, and BULA ON THE BEACH was born. BULA COCOA BEACH, the third store was created because the owner was ready to open another store and wanted to plant roots on the East Coast of Florida! “Baby BULA,” or BULA COCOA BEACH was birthed with lots of love and care with many hands working together to get her off the ground. They say it takes a village and rightfully so when you are inside BULA COCOA BEACH she radiates love, happiness, and community!
BULA COCOA BEACH is owned and operated by Ross Kashtan. Ross’s love for Kava began like most customers in the first few visits to his first Kava Bar: BULA KAFE. His love for Kava and how it helped him in his personal journey grew so much that he purchased BULA KAFE in 2014. HE (BULA NATION, Inc.) continues to grow and expand on the principals of his love for helping others with natural remedies to improve their lives! Ross has immersed himself in the Kava Business so far to have traveled to Vanuatu to learn about the Kava Culture, processing and importation process. He has an undefinable passion for The Kava Bar business and continues to find new sources for products and improve quality while keeping the original family, community-centric atmosphere. He now has expanded his search for more plant medicines and has traveled to Peru and Costa Rica to research, and bring back more sources that can help people heal in more natural ways.
