Seattle’s pioneer of the Farm Direct coffee movement since 1995, Caffe Vita, perfectly captures the spirit of the Emerald city. With a focus on Independent & locally roasted organic coffees, Caffe Vita is known as the favorite coffee of Seattle’s independent music & arts scene. Roasting on artsy Capitol Hill in a building decorated by a large colorful mural, Vita recently celebrated their 25th anniversary of serving up their independently roasted coffees to Seattle and beyond-- Vita also operates cafes in Los Angeles, Portland, Bushwick, and Brooklyn. Talk about expanding the market!
With an expansive array of roasts, Caffe Vita has something for everyone: chocolate-forward medium blends, darker espresso blends, and, every so often, sweet single origins with tasting notes like honey and orange guava. Their coffees rotate seasonally, adding lots of variety to their coffee menu: you’ll see up-and-coming growers from spots as diverse as Uganda, Peru, Mexico, Congo, alongside more traditional Brazil and Ethiopia. Let Vita’s logo, an Italian clown holding a coffee up, serve as a reminder: while Vita takes the business of coffee very seriously, you, the audience, should simply be enjoying yourself.
