Coffee has been an integral part of many professionals’ lives as a starter for the day, stimulator during burdened hours and furl for the creative process. It’s the same passion that has brought forth something unique in the island- Gahwah 360° .
Esam Hadi retired from his long 37 years careers in the field of Information Technology in 2016 and took with him the everlasting passion for Arabic Coffee. The fragrance of his uniquely blended coffee, soon started to entice the coffee lovers in the island.
On January 7, 2017 Gahwah 360° was launched as an instant and easy preparing Arabic Coffee in three blends, namely Shaqrah, Samrah and Sodah. The initial customers for Gahwah 360° were family members and friends who collected Gahwah in sachets for 1 Liter Dallah. Social media promotions and the participation in small exhibitions familiarized Gahwah 360° to the customers who soon returned with more customers for this quality product. The new blend Hanteya and new size of sachets for ½ Liter Dallah came to life upon the customer’s feedback.
