Turkish coffee maker. This was one of the earliest forms of brewing coffee and still very popular in Arab culture.
The very first known coffee house was in Constantinople (today Istanbul, Turkey). It was called Kiva Han around the year 1475.
Our 1475 Sandwich - Our signature baguette sandwich name after the year of the first coffee house in Turkey...and yes it has Turkey.
From the Arabian Pennisula coffeehouses sprang up in Europe. In England they called them "Penny Universities" because it was said you'd learn so much for only a penny admission.

Our Quality Partners
A quality experience can not be accomplished without delivering a quality product. All of our products are fresh and of the highest standards. As a privately owned coffee house, we had many choices of coffee roasters and tea suppliers. For the importance of freshness with coffee beans, choosing a local roaster was paramount. After much sampling and many over-caffeinated days, the choice was clear. Kahwa coffee roasting, located in St Petersburg, FL is a very important partner to Coffee EVI. Once you taste the coffee, you’ll see why!
For our tea we decided to partner with Mighty Leaf. They offer the most flavorful blends and the healthiest components, all served up in earth-friendly biodegradable bags. Quality, taste, and their packaging solutions make them a clear choice.
