Now Playing: 12,000 Rain Gardens

| February 16, 2012
As we’ve written about before, we’re so excited to support the 12,000 Rain Gardens Campaign, a project lead by Stewardship Partners and Washington State University to reduce flooding and run-off into Puget Sound. We released our 12,000 Rain Gardens Blend in 2011 to support installation of 12,000 rain gardens in the Puget Sound area by 2016. 
The above video is now playing in all seven of our Washington State cafes, where you can find bags of the blend for sale. Produced by our friends at KCTS9, it tells the story of how rain gardens are popping up all over the Seattle area and how you can get involved. 
Our first suggestion? Try a cup of this fantastic blend

All Night Long With Vita & Random Order

| February 14, 2012

Our friends at Random Order Coffeehouse and Bakery in Portland ask, “can a cocktail live up to its namesake?” We think so. Especially when it’s got the one-two-three punch of Caffe Vita, Random Order, and New Deal Distillery.

Grab your sweetheart and celebrate Valentine’s Day the right way tomorrow at Random Order with two cocktails and a slice of pie. The All Night Long features New Deal Distillery’s Coffee Liqueur & Caffe Vita Del Sol Espresso-infused Vodka with a splash of cold-pressed coffee and hazelnut on the rocks.

We think Mr. Richie would definitely approve.

Tonight: Celebrate Fresh Art at Vita

From Matthew Brush’s Jigokudani series.

Make sure you stop by Vita during Blitz Art Walk tonight. Join us at the Capitol Hill cafe for live music, beer, coffee, and great art! Matthew Brush’s Jigokudani, breathtaking portraits of the Japanese snow monkey, will be hanging while Joel David and Erik Chillman spin tunes.  

Bonus: Artwork is 25% off tonight only, as if you need another reason to check out great art.

Math may not have been our favorite subject, but we do firmly believe in the equation coffee + chocolate = happiness. This month we’re bringing you unique coffee and chocolate offerings featuring our Organic Farm Direct Guatemala Finca Nuevo Viñas whole bean coffee and chocolate from Theo and Fran’s.

Hand-crafted latte cups paired with Theo & Fran’s chocolates.

The countdown is on with V-Day only a week away. We’ve got gifts for Valentines of every kind, from the super casual to the head over heels.

We’re suckers for stacks of Theo chocolate bars (available in Classic and Fantasy) and Fran’s dark chocolate caramel hearts. If you really want to impress your Valentine, go for our epic Crock of Love, an assortment of the best from Theo & Fran’s, including Theo’s Aphrodisiac Ganache collection all packaged in a locally-made kitchen crock crafted from organic red clay.

Want to celebrate Valentine’s Day every month? Vita’s Coffee & Theo Chocolate of the Month subscription is always available for purchase online. Each month we’ll send you or your sweetheart a hand-selected 12 oz bag of Vita whole bean coffee and a bar of Theo’s Fair Trade organic chocolate.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
