Kava is available on Apple App Store and Google Play Store:
Kava is also available as a Progressive Web App (PWA).
PWAs are lightweight, next-gen apps that you can install directly from your browser.
They look and feel just like one you download from an app store but take up less space on your device and you don't need to update them all the time.
PWA Installation instructions:
On iPhone, PWAs are currently only installable from Safari, not other browsers such as Chrome.
Open Safari and go to discoverkava.com/login.

Kava helps you discover, rate and share specialty coffee.
Tap at the bottom of the screen to explore the map. When prompted, allow Kava to use your location.
All locations are checked by us to ensure they are independently owned and serving high quality coffee from a specialty coffee roaster.
When you tap on a location, if we have sufficient user data, you'll see whether it is Laptop friendly, what food is on offer, and the venue's average coffee rating.
This data is solely provided by Kava users, meaning that you can trust it is impartial and coming from people like you who enjoy good coffee.
If you find a great coffee shop that is not yet on Kava, you can add it using the link at the bottom of the discover page.

Kava is still very new and it's possible that you will find issues.

Have you ever arrived somewhere new and wondered where to go for specialty coffee?
You try Google, but your search results are littered with multinational coffee chains.
So you check some blogs but all the ads and affiliate links make you question how much you can trust their recommendations.
If you do find somewhere that looks nice, you're unsure whether it's a good place to work, or what facilities and food options you'll find when you get there.
As a perpetual traveler, I face these issues every day. So I built Kava.
Kava helps you discover the right coffee shop for you. It's the place to rate your coffees and collect badges for each country you visit. It's the place to share images and comments with your friends all around the world.
Kava simply means coffee in Croatian - the country I was in when I first got the idea for the app.
It also means coffee in Czech, Polish, Lithuanian, Slovakian, Ukrainian, and several other languages.
Kava's mission is to create connections and community between coffee lovers and coffee shops.
We strive to support specialty coffee shops by connecting them to coffee drinkers who care about what's in their cup.
We give coffee lovers a place to share and connect with like-minded coffee drinkers.
Above all, we champion the sustainable, ethical specialty coffee industry.
We — and the Kava community — are adding new coffee shops every day. But we want to ensure that all coffee shops are vetted by us so we have focused on the continent we call home: Europe.
You can use Kava anywhere in the world, and add coffee shops everywhere you go, but if you're outside Europe, you won't yet find many locations on Kava.
This is your chance to be a pioneer and help build the Kava community from the ground up.
