We’ll feature this exciting coffee alongside many others, and brew with a variety of tools and techniques. This one is being held in Capitol Hill, May 4th, 10:00 to noon.

Vita baristas do amazing things. Leslie Kwon, part of the team at our NYC location and native Seattleite, is directing her third film, If You Lived Here. The film follows two strangers meeting at a specific time in their lives and the emotional parallels between them.

Meet John Hasson and his daughter Isabella. John is the owner and chef at Tyler Street Café in Port Townsend, WA. His 11 year old daughter Isabella is a barista prodigy. We were so impressed with Isabella’s latte art and overall technique that we wanted to showcase it here.

If you’re a Port Townsend resident, or plan on visiting for this year’s Rhododendron Festival during the last weekend of May, pay Tyler Street café a visit. You may find Isabella behind the counter practicing her skills, try some of John’s delicious cooking or sample some pastries made by his wife Anca.
