The 7th annual Malibu Invitational was held this past weekend August 2-4, 2013, benefitting the Young and Brave Foundation. The Malibu Invitational is a grassroots Shortboard Pro, Legend’s and Masters Invitational surf contest born to blend generations of surfers to enrich and save lives. It was an honor for Caffe Vita to be selected as this years coffee sponsor and we were on hand to provide surfers, friends, family and fans with French press of our Caffe Luna as well as our ice cold toddy brew. Caffe Vita’s brand ambassador and local Malibu surfing legend Steven Lippman had a strong showing in this years event, winning every heat on his way to the finals where he placed 3rd in an extremely talented Legends Division.

Caffe Vita would like to thank all of the events organizers, sponsors and supporters and a huge thank you to the City of Malibu, Val Surf, Freedom Artists and Famous Surf Accessories.

Sumatra Earthquake Relief Fund Update

| August 2, 2013

Thank you to all our customers and friends for the overwhelming amount of support and donations made to the Sumatra Earthquake Relief Fund. In the month of July, we have received several thousand dollars in donations from all 11 of our cafes and online customers.  We will continue to collect cash donations through the end of August and will do a donation match.  Please also consider buying a 12oz bag of the Sumatra Gayo River whole bean coffee, a portion of each sale will be donated.  100% of donations go directly into the Sumatra Earthquake Relief Fund!  We sent the first money transfer to the Farmers in Sumatra we have been working with since 1997 and they were overjoyed with the support from all of you:

“Dear Caffe Vita,

Got informed today from Ina and Pak Irham, thank you so much for your donation, transfer was received.  Accordingly, PT.IKA (Irham) will submit directly to our farmers in the damaged quake’s area.

This will be helpful for the farmer’s casualties and for their mental and life recovery.

Terimakasih banyak…Have good days.
