Caffè Vita Coffee Roasting Co., Seward Park, Seattle WA, – Five out of five wheels rating
Caffè Vita Coffee Roasting Co. has been a regular stop for The Cycle Café when we have been riding clockwise around the south end of Lake Washington and heading back into Seattle through the Seward Park neighborhood. We have been consistently satisfied with the ambience, service, and espresso at the Seward Park location which is housed in a humble single story brick building. We are always perked up when we see the amusing Pulcinella sign and logo of Caffè Vita. The cafe has a neighborhood atmosphere and has seemingly always been populated with conversationalists gathering around a good cup of coffee and pastry. The large glass windows pleasantly fill the cafe with sunlight. Featured works of art add to the decor of simple wood tables and chairs. Outdoors, one can sit at small metal cafe tables neatly tucked under a canvas canopy. There is also a bench next to a bike rack that one can use.
We give Caffè Vita, Seward Park, a five out of five wheels rating. The first good mark is for delivering consistency of quality for each visit we have made. Each time the barista took concentrated care to prepare the espresso making it feel just a touch more special. We were also offered a seltzer to start off the process. The espresso was delivered precisely with a cup, saucer and spoon. We do not recall ever being asked if our order was to go; a particular pet peeve of ours. The baristas have been friendly and engaging even when busy. The crema has been a consistent, lasting, rich layer of reddish brown delight. The aroma has been bountiful; lighting up the senses and preparing the palette for a sumptuous robust flavor with a wonderful finish of sweet coffee essence. Keep up the great work of delivering a consistent and complete espresso experience. We will have to try your other locations to compare cafe to cafe.
Caffè Vita Coffee Roasting Co. has multiple locations including one in New York City. They have a large selection of fresh “Farm Direct” beans that are artisan roasted into blends for purchase.
