Announcing Kavasseur 2.0!

The Kavasseur is back in America. After two years roughing it in Ethiopia, Sudan, Kenya, and Ghana I’m back in the mid-Atlantic mixing up Tanoas in the savannas of Baltimore. The Kavasseur comes back with a slew of new Kavas to get loopy and bizarre with – fresh frozen Kavas from Root of Happiness, new micronized additions to Bula Kava House, a re-visit to the dirty oily Squanch-lands, and a carving of the 24 Wave from Ozia originals.

Stay tuned as I, once again, come out of retirement for more live-streamed krunking.

And while we’re at it, let’s appreciate that people have stole my pictures and used them for their Kava advertisements on (not the one that’s burning).


Kavasseur is Back Next Week!

I’ve been in Madagascar on a humanitarian mission, and in Ghana visiting my family. But I’m happy to say I’ll be back next week with reviews of new Bula Kava House Kavas and a Kava Time Kava!

Ozia Originals – 24 Wave Fijian Noble Kava

Ozia Originals, The makers of the Kava world’s beloved “Kava Candy,” are now getting involved in the Kava powder market – though in a subtle and refreshing way. According to Ozia Originals, they decided to offer this Kava as a “premium” type of Kava that is light, refreshing, and calming. This Kava nicely fills in the niche of “everyday Kava” that can be consumed over long sessions. In addition to having almost purely anxiolytic effects, this Kava is light and fresh-tasting, with that signature “coconut juice” flavor and absent of any peppery notes whatsoever. This is a great addition to the Kava line-up, and certainly a welcome new member of the Fiji Kava family.

Kavasseur Visits “the Nak” in Boca Raton, FL – the Official Kava Bar of Nakamal at Home

From the 28 – 30 April, I had the privilege of visiting “the Nak” in Boca Raton, FL. “The Nak” is the official bar of Nakamal at Home, one of the premier vendors of Kava in the United States and the world. “The Nak” is the first Kava bar in the continental United States, and is packed to the gills every night with Kava drinkers. For three days straight, I drank Kava at the Nak from morning until night. I also had a chance to venture out and check out some of the other Kava bars in South Florida. By far, the Nak is the best Kava bar in Florida, and the United States.

All in all, I drank about 70 shells of Kava over the mellowest weekend I have ever experienced. While visiting “the Nak,” I interviewed other Kavasseurs and tried to document what this amazing Kava bar is like.

Kavasseur – Kavasseur and Senor Chuggs Krunkin’ in the Park

Senor Chuggs and I headed out to Patterson Park in Baltimore, Maryland to throw back some Kava Roots Tongan Family Reserve and Kava Vaka Fiji Premium Lawena. Things kind of fell apart near the end, and I neglected to capture the full krunkness. But it was indeed an epic time!

*Note: I don’t know whether it was the Vinaka or the Kava Roots, but both Chuggs and I felt a next day “glow” after this session
