Yes! Trick or Vote! The biggest, best and spookiest Halloween party is coming at you large and in charge!
On Halloween, October 31st, we’re going to have hundreds of young people, in costume, going door to door, reminding other young folks to turn in their ballots.
We’re going to knock on thousands of doors, and make sure our generation is making its voice heard!
And afterwards, of course, we’ll be throwing the best Halloween shindig in town. Keep your ears peeled for bands, etc.
And of course, it’s all ages!

One Pot + Caffe Vita + The Stranger’s own Charles Mudede will be throwing a little dinner in honor of our old friend Paul Miller better known as the internationally renowned recording artist DJ Spooky. Paul’s remarkable new book Sound Unbound just hit book-stands this week – and we are going to dash together a major feast in Vita’s outrageously beautiful capitol hill loft. Go to onepot.org for more details…
Below is the part two follow up to an in-studio performance by local SubPop outfit Tiny Vipers conducted by Vita’s collaboration with Public Access Media we recorded a few weeks back. Tiny Vipers is the project of Seattle-based singer/songwriter Jesy Fortino, a self-taught guitarist whose intricate playing and lonesome vocals give her work a uniquely haunting quality.
Caffe Vita is happy to host and sponsor a remarkable outing to BORNEO…
Photographer Annie Marie Musselman has been given a rare opportunity to travel to Borneo with writer Hillary Rosner (NY Times, Popular Science) to document the critical work being done at the Nyaru Menteng Orangutan Sanctuary. The project will be featured in Audubon Magazine.
In just the last two decades, THE ORANGUTAN POPULATION HAS BEEN DECIMATED BY 86%. Without immediate help, they will be extinct in less than 10 years. Lone Droscher Nielson stood up to stop this catastrophe. Nine years ago she started the Nyaru Menteng Rehabilitation Center in Borneo on a shoestring budget. Today it is the largest primate project on the planet with nearly 700 orangutans and a staff of over 150. She works tirelessly to rescue, rehabilitate and release orangutans; knowing that if she stops, they will be lost forever.
With this massive undertaking, there is massive cost. And yet she receives no funding from the Indonesian government and the Sanctuary is always on the precipice of bankruptcy.
We need your support to raise funds for travel and production expenses. Help the orangutans tell their story!
Compete in Seattle’s official Rock-Paper-Scissor tournament of 2008 and support the orangutans.
THE CHAMPION WILL WALK HOME WITH $250 CASH!
October 23, 2008 6:00 PM · Caffe Vita’s Secret Loft.

Here is a little submission from Brock Gravery – ultra-runner and recently voted one of the fittest men in America by Outside Magazine.
“The quality of Caffe Vita Coffee is not just enjoyed by coffee aficionados, café dwellers or people struggling to get through day to day madness. It is also enjoyed by a rare breed of self proclaimed “ultra runners” who take it upon themselves to run distances that can span over 100 miles of rough terrain and sometimes lasting multiple sleepless days and nights. Refusing to consume hybrid sugar water with fancy labels and empty promises of extreme electromagnetic bliss, these athletes subsist on healthy portions of water and Caffe Vita brew to see them through their odysseys.
Caffe Vita co-sponsors athletes Brock Gavery and Sam Thompson on several of their endeavors – including an 8 day run across the 483 mile Colorado Trail, traversing 8 mountain ranges. Caffe Vita also sponsored the fastest circumnavigation of Glacier Peak – about 90 miles of largely unmaintained trails and river crossings and which took the athletes 36 hours of sleep deprived suffering to accomplish. Caffe Vita is now sponsoring the Second Annual Carkeek Park 12 Hour Endurance Run right here in Seattle. Caffe Vita will be served, hot and cold, the entire 12 hours. Learn more about this event at http://www.carkeek12hour.com and stay tuned for many more Caffe Vita Sponsored adventures to come.”
one pot + god in a cup + caffe vita = oct. 21
michaele weissman’s critically acclaimed new book “god in a cup” hit bookshelves this summer – an elegant and carefully researched ode to the new frontier of coffee – she headed off to farms in east africa and central america with our friends from intelligentsia and counter culture, had a daunting run-in with the founder of stumptown who offered her a bong hit during their first interview, and lost much sleep decoding the mystery behind the panamanian esmeralda that cost about as much as diamonds.
michaele and i have plenty to discuss – since my travels with caffe vita have been equally far flung. expect a casual evening of deep pots of food, conversation, and coffee – the talented scott emerick of cremant fame is going to be joining me in the kitchen to cook a couple dishes i prepared with guatemalan coffee farmers on a recent vita/one pot excursion – and vita will be serving forth farm direct coffee from the very same guatemalan farm. we will be tucked inside caffe vita’s well-hidden private loft – the space alone is worth the ticket.
yet again we have the talented kim ricketts to thank for making this evening possible.
october 21st. caffe vita’s private capitol hill loft. 6pm. $40/person. byow.

Our favorite neighborhood bistro is swinging open its sexy doors for BRUNCH service this saturday – they are featuring a remarkable selection of Caffe Vita Farm Direct Coffee. Cremant is located in the charming little Seattle village of Madrona – just off the corner of 34th and Union – if you haven’t been don’t forget to admire the stunning interior design by uber-architect/artist/sculptor/furniture maker Roy McMakin.
Keeping things fresh at Caffe Vita, here is an in-studio performance by local SubPop outfit Tiny Vipers conducted by Vita’s collaboration with Public Access Media a few weeks back. Tiny Vipers is the project of Seattle-based singer/songwriter Jesy Fortino, a self-taught guitarist whose intricate playing and lonesome vocals give her work a uniquely haunting quality.
Below is an interview which took place in the Caffe Vita bean room, conducted by Public Access Media, over Block Party weekend with Chromeo this summer. We were very lucky to have had the opportunity to grace the presence of such an awesome act. Chromeo is Pee Thug and Dave 1: best friends since their adolescence, virtuoso musicians, and walking hip hop encyclopedias. Chromeo is slick. Chromeo is dripping with reverb. Chromeo is Moog riffs, luxurious harmonies, macho guitar solos and real-deal songcraft. After their performance on main stage we ushered them through way of candle lit underground passage, bypassing the thousands of screaming fans, and into our make-shift studio for a smooth sexy interview. Enjoy!
The Sorrento Hotel just made the switch to Caffe Vita coffee. We couldn’t be happier to have our coffee floating about in such a glamorous setting; easily the sexiest old school hotel in Seattle. We highly recommend the Hunt Club for late weekend brunch. Hidden away in their loungy bar it is easy to imagine you are living in the bygone era of Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and the lovely Josephine Baker.
