Time is running out to claim your seat at the next Public Brewing School, Caffe Vita’s free class on all things coffee. We are excited to feature our latest import from Papua New Guinea, a cooperatively grown coffee by native farmers who’ve pledged their land to conservation. 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. Email email@example.com to reserve your place in this month’s installment of PBS!
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.
Caffe Vita is proud to be a participating business in the First Annual Eat Out on Capitol Hill to benefit Country Doctor Community Health Centers.

Eat Out on Capitol Hill, Sept 14, 2011
At Caffe Vita we are proud to work with many wonderful community organizations that make a difference in people’s lives and make our communites a better place for all of us. In fact, we feel so strongly that we’re going to help spread the word about some of our community institutions, starting with the Pacific Science Center.
Mission: Pacific Science Center inspires a lifelong interest in science, math and technology by engaging diverse communities through interactive and innovative exhibits and programs.

Festival of the Fountains
is the annual gala, and this year’s took place on July 22, 2011, at the Pacific Science Center grounds. Caffe Vita coffee was served with dinner and we also provided a pour over bar and syphon coffee for gala guests.
It’s pretty widely accepted, in Seattle anyway, that coffee beans can be as nuanced and varied in taste in the same way various wines are. It’s fitting then that Caffé Vita’s excellent will again be the coffee sponsor for the Auction of Washington Wines (AWW) taking place August 19-21. The AWW is a very important fundraiser that benefits the Seattle Children’s Hospital and raises funds towards the near $100 million the hospital needs annually for uncompensated care (a service that makes sure all Washington children receive the best care available regardless of insurance coverage).
In addition to providing auction items, Caffé Vita’s mobile coffee cart will be serving fine espresso drinks and coffee during these AWW events:
-Barrel Auction and Picnic with the Winemakers on August 19th, info here.
-Covey Run 10K race, and 5k race/walk on August 21st, info here.
- Gala Auction on August 21st, info here.
Caffé Vita is proud to support The Service Board and their Lu’au next Thursday, August 12th at 6pm, at Golden Gardens Park. Here’s a great summary of what will go down:

A Whole Roasted Pig. (yes, I know!!! A whole pig! OMG!!)
