Yahava is a quirky and unique place to head to for your next 'coffee date'. Situated in the Swan Valley, Yahava's back yard sends whiffs of an alluring coffee-tainted freedom. I don't just head here for my caffeine kick, though. Yahava is as much a niche specialty shop as it is a cafe. Their selection of teapots, tea cups, coffee makers- in fact, all things coffee and tea- will amaze you. From Volkswagen Kombi cups to seals that hold your tea leaves, Yahava provides plenty of choice for some exceptional gifts! If your partner is a coffee or tea lover, definitely head here to find a unique Valentines Day treat! You can browse some of their products on their website. I also like to head to Yahava for their variety of wholesale coffee beans and tea leaves. You can watch them freshly roast their coffee beans daily, and I highly recommend you partake in their free tastings! Their chocolate covered coffee beans are to die for!
My favourite part about Yahava has got to be the open space that you look out on while you sip on your freshly made brew. A generous area of grass overlooks a dam, with vineyards and hills in the distance. It's the perfect dose of tranquility!

Yahava also have a nice selection of treats for all of you foodies! I love all their raw balls, but my favourites have to be the 'fig and cacao bliss' and the 'pick me up and go ball'. Both have tasty, nourishing, and organic ingredients- so basically, you feel great after eating them! Yahava also offer a range of muffins and slices, with my favourite slice being the 'mocha caramel slice'. Yum!

If you're not a coffee drinker, don't assume that you'll be left out! You can choose from a variety of aromatic leaf teas (I love the green sencha!), chai lattes, as well as hot chocolates. For something a little cooler, try their frappe, iced-Koffee, or sparkling teas. For those of you who like to drink out of the box, the chok-chai frappe is refreshing amalgamation of the sweetness of chocolate and the spiciness of the chai.
If you live in the Swan Valley or are ever passing through on a short time frame, Yahava's newest addition is a drive-thru! Kwik Koffee is a time-efficient way to get your kick. I was surprised to hear that they have many franchise drive-thrus all around Australia! Click here to find out more.
