Coffee and Pie Pairing on Saturday — Don’t miss it!

| December 1, 2011

If you’ve been meaning to come to one of the coffee and pie pairings at High 5 Pie, this Saturday is the last one in the series. The featured pies are Apple, Caramel Pecan, and Chocolate Cream. We’ll bring the Caffe Vita beans and brewing methods to make the best cup for each slice. After you sample all the delicious things to eat and drink, pick up the off-the-hook cute cookbook, Cutie Pies, by High 5 Pie founder Dani Cone. That’s buying local — and eating and drinking local.

* Saturday, December 3 * 2pm to 4pm * High 5 Pie *
1400 12th Avenue, Seattle (the corner of 12th and Madison on Capitol Hill).

Public Brewing School is Back in Session

| November 9, 2011

In less than two weeks, Public Brewing School will be back in session. This time around we will focus on a few new(ish) manual brewing methods, including the AeroPress and Clever Dripper, as well at the more traditional methods of French Press, pour-over, and Bialetti. Taste what’s brewed through the various methods and increase your understanding of brewing techniques to highlight the amazing flavors and aromas in your beans.

The next PBS sessions are November 19 and December 17. The Saturday morning classes begin at 10am, lasting about two hours, and are held at Caffe Vita Capitol Hill at 1005 E. Pike Street. The classes are free and space is limited. To reserve your spot, please email

We look forward to meeting our next waves of students. See you soon at PBS.
