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 firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place in this month’s installment of PBS!
Our next Public Brewing School (PBS) class will take place
this next Saturday, July 30, August 6 from 10am to 12pm. Attendees will learn home brewing methods, including pour over, French press, vaccum pot, Bialetti, and more. The cost to attend PBS is $20. Each student will receive a 12-ounce bag of Farm Direct coffee and 15% off any brewing device.

Our Public Brewing School has been cheerfully chugging along with sessions roughly once a month. Our next session is scheduled for Saturday, January 22nd at 10 a.m. and we have a few spots left. All PBS classes are held at our Capitol Hill location, in the tasting room above the roasterie and last about 2 hours.
Public Brewing School is our complimentary class that delves into the world of brewing better coffee at home. Set aside your automatic drip machine and learn about the joys and benefits of using superior brew methods like French Press, Chemex, Vacuum Pot, Bialetti, and Pour Over.

|Watching her roast the coffee right in the living room was immediately thrilling, but as soon as the green beans started to near the second crack and then make the journey late into it, my taste buds started screaming… I now understand why there is loads of sugar in many of the coffee shops of Addis.
Morning before the journey south: I awoke this morning to the sun just peaking over the hills of Addis, the prayers from the Orthadox Church next door echoing in the air, and the smoke of frankincense with another smell that was vaguely familiar wafting up through the corners of my door. In the days of no smoking in Seattle, one gets very confused when a wonderful smelling smoke is filling your room first thing in the morning. I followed the smoke down the stairs to our small living area and as soon I leaned into the room I quickly had to side step Marta, who was preparing a traditional coffee ceremony. I have heard of the traditional coffee ceremony in the states and now have seen it many times here in Addis, but at 6 a.m. in the morning!? You can imagine it put a huge smile on my face.
Stay tuned for more from Andy, from Ethiopia…

Caffé Vita’s Public Brewing School (PBS) has been a huge success since it launched last year. It’s no surprise our class last weekend was sold out. Everyone is always a bit weary coming in on a a Saturday morning, but as soon as our roaster and teacher for this session Jacob got the coffee flowing with a couple of French Press pots the class was as attentive as grad students in an exam review. If you’re interested in attending a PBS class, please keep checking in here for more information. Our next couple classes are scheduled for August 21st and September 11th. Until then, here’s a few pictures from last week:
