Chill Caw-Fee

Lisa Henney is the owner of a new coffee shop and CBD shop in Valrico called Chill Caw-Fee. She lives with her husband, Tom, and over the past five years she has been creating new ways to help him with his ailments through more natural solutions and healthier options.

She has been involved in the restaurant business for most of her adult life and wanted to create a place where the community could gather over a cup of ‘cawfee,’ freshly brewed tea and a simple pastry.

If you ask what makes Chill Caw-Fee different from other coffee shops in the area, Henney will tell you that it’s not just her New York way of saying things, it also stands for Cannabinoids And Wellness For Every Experience.

Henney said, “We have a hemp store embedded in our shop and will be providing education for patients.”
