Here are some delightful drawings that Joey Veltkamp crafted for a dinner Caffe Vita and One Pot hosted in the charming private dining room at Cremant – chef Scott Emerick and crew prepared a fleet of traditional absinthe cocktails replete with burning cubes of sugar, elaborate absinthe spoons, and ornate antiquities – and the food was stunning…
We highly recommend the new batch of absinthe Cremant just secured – pop in and see what all the hype is about.
Last night we had our ONE POT dinner so everyone could hear about the new Farm Direct Coffee. Vita went to Ethiopia to find coffee, and found a great Yirgacheffe. Several amazing chefs from Hidmo cooked traditional lamb, spinach, potatoes and carrots, salad, and of course injera. It was an unbelievable meal, complete with a coffee ceremony and incense.
a quick peek at the hundreds of photos we captured while in ethiopia during our recent sourcing trip – it was an intense amazing trip – much more to come – videos, essays, and of course coffee. the beans we found in sidamo and yirgacheffe will be available this week, here is the link: farm direct coffee
these photos were taken by brian wells the talented proprietor of the tougo coffeehouse in seattle (one of our most dedicated customers) who vita brought along to experience coffee at the source.
our time in guatemala was intense, disorienting, and beautiful – a bit like the place itself. here is a video montage of our time in this coffee-rich war-torn land. for further reading and evocative images – guatemala: ak-47s and bitter water.
