Seattle Weekly: Geraldine’s Counter whips up one of Seattles Top 5 Omelets.

| March 11, 2010
Geraldine’s Counter, 4872 Rainier Ave. S., 374-8717. Resting in the heart of Columbia City, this bright, trendy diner (and sister restaurant of Capitol Hill’s “modern comfort food” spot Table 219) offers its breakfast menu all day–a very good decision. The Herbed Omelet folds, you guessed it, fresh herbs right into the eggs and features caramelized onions, goat cheese and an optional add-in of smoked salmon for one of Seattle’s richest breakfasts. Top it off with specialty toast from Columbia City Bakery and perfectly cooked hash browns, wash it down with CaffĂ© Vita coffee and be ready to conquer the day. Or take a nap. Your call.

Exploring The Path From Coffee Plant To Coffee Cup With Caffe Vita

Q13 FOX News Online

March 1, 2010

SEATTLE – Maybe you have the occasional cup with dessert, or when you’re out with friends catching up on the latest news and gossip. Or maybe you brew yourself a thermos-full every morning before work. Whatever the case, there is a lot that goes in to creating that perfect-tasting cup of coffee, and we went to the folks at Caffe Vita on Capitol Hill to show us what the process entails.

From selecting just where to purchase the beans from, to the way those beans are roasted, there are many different elements that go in to creating just the right taste. Some say coffee has just as many (if not more) flavor notes than wine. So it’s not surprising that with “cupping,” coffee lovers can do a tasting just as wine lovers can.

Caffe Vita is just one of many locally-owned coffee shops in the Seattle area. They hand-roast their own farm direct coffee, and you can stop by one of their locations to taste it for yourself! (Capitol Hill, Queen Anne, Fremont, Seward Park, and Olympia.)

Video Link should be live soon…
