Anticipated coffee concept opens in former Downtown Tim Hortons

Sav McKee

If you’ve ever taken a jog down Scioto Mile, you might have stumbled upon a quaint coffee cart that serves unique, delicious nitro cold brews.

This coffee concept, called Black Kahawa Coffee, now just opened their first permanent spot, right in the heart of Downtown.

You can grab iced or hot coffee, cappuccinos, and even lattes made with house syrups, such as their Zanzibar Spice or Cacao, all at 2 E. Broad St., which used to house a Tim Hortons.

Currently, Black Kahawa Coffee is set up in their original coffee truck, adjacent to a beautiful patio space. They’ll be opening their 1,700 square foot indoor coffee shop this summer.


Stop by and grab a coffee anytime between 6 a.m. – 2 p.m. daily.

This concept was founded by Douglass Buckley, a Columbus native who began this roasting company while doing humanitarian work in Tanzania for more than a decade. He brought back his newfound skills and passion for coffee, and he’s now sharing it with his community.

If you want to learn more about Buckley’s incredible humanitarian work and how he fell in love with coffee roasting, check out his feature in our last October Issue.

Congrats, Black Kahawa!
