Caffe Vita has teamed up with Rain City Spirits, and for good reason.
Rain City Spirits believes in challenging the status quo. They believe it is time for spirits to get back to their roots. They do this by throwing out the traditional “rules” of Vodka production, and focusing strictly on quality and keeping to a sense of place. Each step in the creation of Rain City Spirits Vodka is carefully thought out, from the finest local grain selection, using the best spring water available, to the meticulous and time consuming production methods.

This time it’s personal. Time flies by, so I can’t remember the exact time frame, but I do remember my friend Brian asking me if I wanted to be on Fox’s hit show Kitchen Nightmares as they were set to visit a business in Seattle. I’m addicted to this show, so of course my answer was a solid, “Yes!!!”.
I didn’t make it onto the list of people who would get that opportunity, but remember looking forward to seeing the show that featured a local business trying to find it’s feet again. I didn’t realize at the time that Caffe Vita’s Phinney Ridge location would be the first meeting place of Yanni’s owner Peter Avgoustiou and Chef Gordon Ramsay!
They do a good job of setting up the scene. Before Chef Ramsay enters Caffe Vita he says, “Of course it’s raining, in Seattle”.
The Chef points out one of a few things we are known for in this city. The narrator continues to point out a second, “Before Chef Ramsay heads to the restaurant, owner Peter, has requested some time alone with him…and where else in Seattle, but a coffee shop.”
…and where else in Seattle, but Caffe Vita.
Check out Chef Gordon Ramsay on Fox’s Kitchen Nightmares and the full episode of Yanni’s here.
