About Us

Zac Holzapfel

Art of Kava is a kava importer retailer and wholesaler based in Jacksonville, Florida. Our kava is carefully selected directly from growers, each one offering a unique story.

In 2019 Zac started to learn about kava. Actively joining social media groups and delving deep feet first into the world of kava. Early 2020, he connected with Isake Kantonibau about buying kava for his tea company. Zac had no idea that Isake was a rugby legend but was impressed by his immense knowledge of the kava industry. So Zac, Isake and his business partner Jessica Kunwar talked about what is important in business, for farmers and for the kava industry as a whole. We all wanted the same thing. Make a living doing what we love and supporting the community around us in any way we can. So we dedicated our business to paying fair prices for kava to help farmers sustain their business and families. To also help people get an herb that could genuinely help them deal with pain, withdraw, and break the cycle of stress, anger and depression to lead better lives.

Damu Fiji Kava

One of the most medicinal kavas I’ve ever come across. This kava leans heavy and kicks in slowly but the effects linger for a few hours where many kavas effects burn out quicker. The grind on this kava is fine and it has a nice fresh smell upon opening the bag. This kava truly feels like your sitting next to a warm campfire. Its gentle yet powerful… it’s the perfect night time kava.

Dokobana waka

Starting to realize I much prefer the cultivars that keep their basal and lateral roots at the natural levels (I guess that's 75/25 on average). Nevertheless this is a very high quality kava and the only reason I don't give it a 5 star is for the reason that it is only Waka. I also prefer Vanuatu kava to that of Fijian. Bula!

Perfect anytime

I took the kelai to an event where most had alcohol, and it was perfect for socializing. Also tried at home and it was equally suited for chill mode at home without couch lock.
