LEARN

 

We've been roasting coffee in Seattle since 1995. We are an independent, locally-owned company. From our beginnings at the base of Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood, Caffe Vita now operates nine cafes in the Pacific Northwest, a roasteria cafe in New York City, and a cafe in Los Angeles.

 

We are pioneers of the Farm Direct movement, meticulously sourcing the best coffee available while developing long-term, mutually fruitful relationships with coffee growers in more than 11 countries. We work with and invest in farmers who are committed to sustainable practices.

 

By creating an environment where the customer can see, touch, and taste the coffee they purchase, we provide a unique learning opportunity that allows our coffee to speak for itself. Caffe Vita is always fresh, imported directly from the farm and roasted on-site.

 

ROASTING

 We use vintage Probat and Gothot roasters, allowing full manual control over the process and enabling our artisan roasters the ability to monitor and adjust every stage of flavor development. Maintaining the consistency of our blends and expressing the distinct nuances of our seasonal single origins is the core of our approach.

BREW SCHOOL

Public Brewing School (PBS) is our complimentary class that delves into the world of understanding and brewing better coffee at home.

PBS focuses on manual brewing methods but is also an open forum to talk all things coffee! Come hang out and explore the joys and benefits of using a variety of brewing methods. Some examples of the brewing methods covered are French Press, Chemex, Bonmac Pour Over, and Aeropress. Classes are held on Sundays from 10am to 12pm at Caffe Vita's roasting facility on Capitol Hill, and yes, it's free!


The 2017 PBS dates are listed below. To register, send us an email: trainingdept@caffevita.com with your preferred date!
