The idea for Qahwati was first born in 2014 when two friends, Ali Taha and Chen Weisman both felt that there was not enough opportunity for networking in Arab society, where one can has fast access to coffee at an affordable price. Everything here is priced at 5 ₪.
In 2016 they began to work on their new franchise and on July 1st 2017 Qahwati was opened in Nazareth. In September 2017 another branch was opened in Sakhnin. There are 10 branches of Qahwati open throughout Israel.
