Bula Cocoa Beach Kava Bar and Coffeehouse is a family-friendly, upscale but cozy kava bar that caters to a diverse crowd and offers a positive community space for art and music, a sober nightlife, and somewhere to hang out. Bula specializes in plant-based medicine, offering kava, botanical teas, kombucha, and coffee.

Kava is a root from the South Pacific islands that has been used ceremonially for centuries Our kava comes from the islands of Vanuatu where it is believed kava originated. Kava is said to relieve stress and anxiety, provide relaxation, and increase sociability.

Bula is all about community and we support local businesses whenever possible. We only serve coffee from Wahoo Coffee Company, who boasts a large selection of Fair Trade and organic gourmet coffee beans air roasted in Cocoa Beach. Our kombucha is crafted by Awaken Kombucha, Florida’s first and only oak aged kombucha, and they only use raw and organic ingredients in their brew. We also offer a variety of botanical teas sourced to ensure the highest quality.

Bula Cocoa Beach is the third kava bar opened in Florida under Bula Nation, Inc. and comes with years of experience and respect for the kava tradition. The original owner is a native to the motherland of kava, Vanuatu. We only use the freshest and purest organic ingredients and ensure all of our kava and botanical teas are lab tested for purity.

We can’t wait to see you. Bula!

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. Operating as BULA NATION, Inc., the Bula tribe 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.
