Greetings from LA! Today marks the opening of our pop-up shop inside of Rudy’s Barbershop Silverlake. We’ll be serving up coffee and selling holiday blend now through December 31st. 100% of profits will go directly to CoachArt, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization that promotes the art of improving lives by matching volunteer coaches in the arts and athletics with children affected by chronic and life-threatening illnesses.

We’re excited to announce the arrival of our 2012 Holiday Blend! This year, Vita’s Holiday Blend features two unique coffees from the Southern Hemisphere:
A vibrant organic coffee from the high jungle of La Convencion, Peru is paired with the distinctive island flavors of Flores, Indonesia to produce a richly spiced and deliciously sweet toned cup. Full-bodied, gentle acidity with hints of mulling spice and dark chocolate. A perfect complement to the season!
This year’s label has a classic feel, inspired by vintage vinyl. Our Holiday Blend is now available for purchase through our online store
and at all of our cafes.
We look forward to celebrating the holidays with you!
Vita was featured in a round up of Northwest coffee landmarks in SAVEUR Magazine, along with Drew’s own story of growing up immersed in Seattle coffee culture in the 80′s:
In 1983 my two mothers, Meredith and Elyse, bought an espresso cart, parked it along Alki Beach in West Seattle, and unknowingly positioned themselves among a handful of coffee pioneers in the Northwest. A year later, I came along. I have spent my life surrounded by coffee.
