PBS is a free class which takes place once a month at the Capitol Hill Caffe Vita. Andy Kent, Vita’s lead coffee trainer, has a wealth of knowledge to share about the history of the bean and the best way to brew the perfect cup. All classes from 10am – Noon. Email Andy@caffevita.com to reserve a spot.
Another successful PBS class last Saturday. Drinking coffee early in the morning, helps with afternoon sun…
the last time young master cupper Keith was this excited (circa 198?)
Round two : Ethiopia . . . and Yemen
Our second cupping featured all dry processed coffees. From cup to cup we witnessed the wide range of qualities that emerge when coffee is allowed to dry with fruit still clinging to the bean. The yeasty and winey qualities of fermentation were present, as were the fabulous dark chocolate and blueberry notes. Some unusual and surprising aromas evoked memories of dusty desert nights roasting chilies, and the fumes of medicine cabinet.
Caffe Vita will be hosting the Vera’s forthcoming fundraiser event, the 8th annual A Drink For The Kids benefit, to be held July 11-17, 2010. The community driven event raises money for the Vera Project’s volunteer-run, non-profit and all-ages music and arts program. Vera has been a major force in Seattle music scene since 2001. Throughout the week, patrons of all ages can get coffee at select Caffe Vita locations and 20% of the cost of their purchase will go to support the Vera Project. Caffe Vita’s participation complements the A Drink For The Kids events at Seattle bars throughout the week.
Caffe Vita’s Capitol Hill location will also host a free wrap-up party prior to the A Drink For The Kids finale concert on Saturday July 17 from 6-8pm; the finale concert will follow immediately at Neumo’s at 8pm, and will feature Brite Futures (formerly Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head).
