California Kahve coffee is new at The Park James Hotel
California Kahve opened earlier this week at The Park James Hotel in Menlo Park as part of Oak + Violet restaurant.
First served out of a 1960 vintage caravan on Ocean Beach in San Francisco by owner Molly Welton, California Kahve has quickly developed a cult following across the Bay Area. People drive for two hours to get their fix of Molly’s Instagrammable organic creations like a wildflower honey latte or dark chocolate orange mocha with lavender mint matcha.
Molly is serving up her creations from 7:00 am to 2:30 pm Monday thru Friday and 8:00 am to 2:30 pm on the weekends. In addition to coffee and tea, California Kahve will serve a variety of smoothie bowls, pastries, and quiches.
California Kahve sources its organic, shade-grown coffee beans from Tiny Footprint Coffee, a carbon-negative company that plants native trees and supports reforestation efforts in Ecuador and organic and ceremonial-grade matcha from Jade Leaf Matcha.
