What We’re Diggin’ on August 19th

| August 19, 2014

It’s the time of year when kids start thinking about going back to school and the weather starts to get a little bit cooler.

A comfortable t-shirt, some jeans and a warm cup of coffee for the morning, and a sweatshirt to cover up once the sun goes down, the steamy days we enjoyed these past few months are hopefully behind us.

And while we’re still itching for a few more beach days, there are plenty of other things that are keeping us busy besides just sweating it out in the sun—and these are just a few of them in this week’s What We’re Diggin’.

LA

Nick Dimengo, Content Creator: “I’m diggin’ on my first time in L.A. with Shawn Jennings last week. What an incredible place, where ambitious people flood the streets like Sour Patch Kids do my kitchen cabinet. Had an amazing time meeting the Vita team down there, seeing the smiles on everyone’s face at A Walk on Water’s event and sprinting to catch our flight back to Seattle.”

Erin Bednarz, Customer Service: “I’m diggin’ my visit to one of our wholesale customers, Restaurant Zoe, for their awesome end-of-summer atmosphere and killer salmon tar tare! I’m also really excited to head down to Portland with my mom this weekend and say what’s up to our Alberta and Third Avenue crew.”

Pearl Nelson, Sales: “I’m diggin’ on Witness bar on Broadway in Capitol Hill!”

Sarah Lane, Marketing Intern: “I’m diggin’ that I’m all done with my summer quarter! And I’m pumped to go to the Seahawks preseason game this Friday!”

Rick Friel, Grocery Field Rep: “I’m diggin’ our continued partnership with the good people at Beacon Food Forest. They’re really making a big difference in this world, and I’m so happy that I can represent Caffe’ Vita each time I bring them a few boxes of our organic coffee. Believe me, they appreciate it. I’m also diggin’ on training our new delivery driver, Joe Kirk. He’s a real nice guy and I think he’ll make a great addition to the Vita family. It’s nice passing down what I’ve learned.”

Alicia BasingerManager, Fremont: “I’m diggin’ iced lattes, polydactyl kittens, Pilates and making pottery this week.”

Ross Beamish, Head Trainer: “I’m diggin’ on working with the staff at The Goodland Hotel in Goleta this week. I’m also happy to have sat down at Industrial Eats for dinner last night. Their seasonal, locally focused menu of pizzas and “not pizzas” always blows me away.”

Allison Hardy, Manager, Phinney Ridge: “I’m diggin’ dancer Leah Jones, who just so happens to be a regular at the Phinney Ridge cafe. Check out this new Gran Rapids music video she dances in below, where there’s a Vita hat toss in slow motion at the 2:23 mark. Love it!”

Something you need this week: Alpen White & Black Baseball Tee—Like Shawn and Pearl, it’s always a style home run when wearing this. (Buy Here)

A$AP Rocky’s pumped for Capitol Hill Block Party, are you?

For those searching for something to do this week, you’re definitely not short on options.

From the REI Village truck coming to our Fremont cafe tomorrow morning from 7-10am, to the Timber Outdoor Music Festival Thursday-Saturday and, of course, Capitol Hill Block Party going on this weekend, Caffe Vita will be all over the place either handing out some coffee or interacting with all of you.

And because we’re really excited about everything going on, we’re letting you know what we’re diggin’ this week to help get you prepped and hyped—so take notes, have fun and we’ll see you all over the place in the next few days.

Gretchen Hackler, Marketing Director: “I’m diggin’ the hike up Tiger Mountain to Poo Poo Point that I recently did. That eight-mile trek gave my booty quite the workout! I earned that Sammie at the top, what a view! I’m also diggin’ the Vita Stage at Summit Block party, excited for this local, free event!”

Gair Wissenbach, Roaster/Manager, New York Lower East Side: “I’m diggin’ our vintage Gothot cranking out batches of batches of Theo to help all us New Yorkers beat the heat.”

Chrissy Nolan, Wholesale Rep: “I’m diggin’ on hot yoga set to a killer soundtrack at The Grinning Yogi—you’re sure to encounter at least one Vita babe there at any given time. After getting my sweat on and endorphins up, I like to take a walk down the block for some oysters and prosecco at The Coastal Kitchen. That’s some Zen for you.

Nick Dimengo, Content Creator: “I’m diggin’ giving up my body (and possibly life) for Vita at Block Party this weekend. Keep an eye on @CaffeVita’s Twitter and tag #VitaCHBP to choose what I should drink, eat, wear, shows I should go to and, of course, a special little surprise question which may or may not involve a tattoo.”
