Portland Indie Wine Fest

| May 6, 2008

Vita rocked the Portland Indie Wine Fest this past weekend. Mason and Michael spoke at a very engaging symposium on Saturday about coffee and terroir (terroir is the environment, soil, climate, and other factors in which products like coffee and wine is produced). What ensued was a fascinating discussion that hit sociological, environmental, and scientific angles, and included a comparison tasting of Vita’s Farm Direct Ethiopian Koke and a Panama that was cupped last week. Aubry from Cacao and Joe Whinney from Theo Chocolate (two of our customers) also participated. We’d have to say, though, that the Vita coffee and Mason’s in-depth talk stole the show. The rest of the weekend was fun, too: we had a coffee cart–complete with the three-group Bosco–set up at the actual wine-and-food-tasting festival..
