San Diego's Finest Organic Coffee & Tea

Fair Trade

This has been a great week of accomplishments for our team members at Cafe Virtuoso.

In a true show of her hard work and commitment to professionalism, Savannah aced her Specialty Coffee Association Barista certification!

Our roaster apprentice, Alice, reached a major milestone this week when Coffee Review gave a Guatemala she roasted a score of 91!

And finally, on the local barista scene, Vanessa won the Latte Art competition at the Thursday Night Throwdown (TNT) last night!

Be sure to congratulate these girls on their individual accomplishments.  We couldn’t be more proud of them and the best is yet to come!

Our Passionate Palates Party was a success! San Diego locals attended this fabulous event for Fair Trade coffee and chocolate sampling and live entertainment, by Avalon Young.  Chocolates were provided by Caxao Chocolates in Little Italy and SweetRiot in New York.  Rigoberto Hernandez spoke to the crowd about the importance of Fair Trade and the coffee market for farm workers around the world and prizes were awarded to attendees in a raffle.  Thanks to everyone who helped put this event on and for attending! Happy Fair Trade Month!
