The word Gahawa is a Swahili slang word that means either ‘coffee’ or ‘having fun'. We decided to name ourselves Gahawa because we are a fun bunch and also because we started out as a coffee and tea manufacturer.
Our apple and cinnamon loose-leaf tea was a hit not because customers brewed it to make tea but instead, they chewed it as a snack. As that trend grew we got the idea of making cinnamon apple chips. Since then, we pivoted to making snacks and have never looked back.
Since the beginning and throughout all of the changes that we have been through, our primary mission has not changed; all of our products are made with 100% natural ingredients with no additives like sugar or artificial flavoring.
We are committed to only producing products made from natural ingredients This is driven by the desire to positively contribute to the lives of our customers and that's the philosophy we follow in all our business decisions.
