from Caffe Vita collaborator One Pot:

“an insane 32 mile trek across the hinterlands of LA covered by gourmet…

check out alex van buren’s engaging article on – alex was brave enough to join me and two other unlucky souls on a 32 mile walking expedition across los angeles (with tables strapped to our backs). we knocked on strange doors to access citrus trees and backyard gardens, and successfully “harvested” enough food on our 36 hour journey to cook an elaborate meal on a traffic island in the shadow of disneyland. this outing, the video footage, and the artifacts of our trek are part of the remarkable exhibition called SUDDENLY now on display at the pomona college museum of art.”

Caffé Vita and famed local chocolatier Theo Chocolate spent months working together to develop this lush blend – which pairs beautifully with chocolate but also has the charm of a superb daily cup. Our lead roaster Mason Sager and Theo’s master chocolate roaster Laura Johnson sampled and cupped hundreds of coffees from around the world. Roast profiles were finely tuned,
countless chocolate samples were paired, and ultimately a clear blend began to emerge.

This coffee showcases two distinct coffees – a Fair Trade organic coffee from the foothills of Peru, and a Fair Trade organic coffee from the dense jungles of East Timor. Expect warm, enticing aromas of sweet vanilla and mild tobacco. Delicate herbal tones up front layered upon hints of baking spice and subtle smoke with dark chocolate undertones throughout. And a sweet, supple medium to full bodied coffee balanced with moderate acidity tapering in to a smooth, lingering finish. 100% Organic and Fair Trade Certified coffee.
