Moms, Enjoy a Free Cup of Zoo Special Reserve French Press

| May 5, 2011

A free cup of French press coffee? On your day and just for you, moms.
This Sunday, May 8, is Mother’s Day, and we’re expressing our gratitude to all moms by offering them a free eight-ounce cup of Zoo Special Reserve French press coffee at any of our cafe locations in Seattle, Olympia and Portland.
And, we’d also like to mention that we’re donating $1 toward the Woodland Park Zoo’s important work in animal care, conservation and education for every bag of the Zoo Special Reserve coffee beans sold in our cafes. We’re doing this because our moms raised us right. Read more about our partnership with the Woodland Park Zoo on the wild and wonderful Zoo Blog.
One last thing, moms! Our friends at the Woodland Park Zoo are having their 21st annual Mom & Me at the Zoo event on Saturday, May 7 (Mother’s day eve). Moms qualify for half-price admission.
We wish everyone a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend.

Introducing Eco-friendly Zoo Special Reserve coffee

| April 15, 2011

We are honored to partner with our good friends at the Woodland Park Zoo to release a special product that supports the Zoo and their conservation programs. Our newest coffee, Zoo Special Reserve, is organic and shade-grown using sustainable farming practices. The beans are from a farm in the Santa Rosa district of Guatemala and were certified by the Rainforest Alliance. The farmers who grow this coffee promote biodiversity by setting aside over forty percent of their land as a nature reserve, which protects the habitats of native tropical animals and birds such as gray foxes, armadillos, anteaters, parrots and butterflies.
Caffe Vita will donate $1 to the Woodland Park Zoo for every bag of Zoo Special Reserve sold in our cafes.

The Woodland Park Zoo is raising funds for their Tree Kangaroo Conservation Program, which works with indigenous landowners in Papua New Guinea to improve community livelihoods while protecting biodiversity and the habitat of the endangered Matschie’s tree kangaroo.
The 12-ounce bags of whole beans are available now at our six Seattle locations.
