Vita & Via Tribunali on The New Potato

| August 27, 2012

Recently, Mike McConnell chatted with Danielle and Laura Kosann of The New Potato about Caffe Vita on the Lower East Side:

Caffe Vita roasts all of our coffee on vintage German made coffee roasters. We roast daily in our Ludlow St. cafe using an antique cast iron Gothot roaster from the early 1900s. We are the first and only wholesale coffee roaster to roast on-site in Manhattan.

To read more about Vita’s history and view Via Tribunali’s recipe for authentic Margherita Pizza, head over to The New Potato.

From the Archives: Farm Direct Trip to Guatemala

| August 20, 2012

Way back in 2009 we documented one of many Farm Direct trips to Guatemala, visiting a 4th generation coffee farm nestled within the lush rainforest and volcanic region of Santa Rosa, Guatemala. The above footage takes you along as we visit an exemplary farm of environmental stewardship and sustainability that clearly shows through from seed to cup.
