We’re always excited to work with The Service Board on a number of different projects, but, this summer, Caffe Vita has the opportunity to steal some of their interns and show them the inside scoop on what happens at Vita.
With interns Muna and John visiting our office once per week over a five-week period, they learned how to brew their own coffee in our Loft, and Muna wanted to share her experience.
My second day at Caffe Vita was more hands on than the first! I was very excited about making my own cup of coffee. We learned about how cappuccinos are made, how latte art is done, and how the ingredient ratio (milk, coffee, syrup) affects the way the drink taste and feels.
With Caffe Vita, I am quickly learning that they are extremely involved in every process and aspect of the coffee experience. Last week I learned about how the coffee was grown, the treatment of the farmers, and how each bean has a different taste. This week I learned more about brewing coffee, and how Caffe Vita is very detailed orientated when it comes to actually preparing the coffee for the customer.
I believe that Caffe Vita is a superior product because of the way the company tries it’s hardest to supply the customer with just what they needs. From the selections of coffees to choose from, the multiple methods the coffee is brewed, and its emphasis on sustainable farming, Caffe Vita is keeping everyone satisfied while still selling affordable good tasting coffee.
Today, I was really surprised by how much I liked the drink I brewed. I don’t believe I have ever had a cappuccino before, let alone an unsweetened one. I liked the way it foamed at the top, and it was nice knowing that I had created it (with help of Elena of course). Knowing the details that go into making a simple cup of coffee has given me more appreciation for the product, and for the craft itself.
