Caffé Vita Kept It Cool at 12th Ave Neighborhood Festival

Allison and Cheryl dispensing delicious Toddy!

The first annual 12th Avenue Neighborhood Festival went down last weekend and with temperatures in the 90s there was no better time to grab an ice cold Caffé Vita toddy coffee brewed with our Farm Direct Gayo River Sumatra. Plenty of festival goers partook and all proceeds, $300, was given to the Lifelong Aids Alliance. Thanks to everyone who came out!
