First, congratulations, how awesome! I did a search on kava and this post came up :) I imagine you're extremely busy, new businesses are time consuming.
I didn't even know of kava's existence until this year, and have been frequenting the Sacred Tea Kava Bar and Lounge in Ithaca NY ever since I learned of it. Other than Manhattan, it appears to be the only Kava bar in NY- lucky for me it's just a handful of miles away. I truly hope to see more of them popping up, it's a fantastic place and a fantastic drink!
Best of luck to you, hopefully you'll return to steemit with some updates :)
