This place is always buzzing and it's not just because of the caffeine coming from the fair trade beans that are roasted on site. Grab a chair outside or a table inside and watch the people come and go at this popular Cap Hill joint.

There are so many coffee hot spots around the city, it's easy to overlook one of the original gems. This Capitol Hill location serves velvety lattes and Americanos with the right amount of crema on top. There are various pastries to nosh and plenty of room to spread out the laptop. You might catch a whiff of attitude on occasion, but so what? The well-made coffee trumps all.

An inviting environment, free cuppings, great people watching and fair trade beans roasted on site means Vita will always be a go to on the Hill.

Ok Coffee, funky atmosphere! – Their coffee was okay... the atmosphere is funky, and it was fun to people watch... we were at the Capitol Hill location. We tried Victrola the next time we were in Seattle and liked the coffee much better... same funky atmosphere though!

Citysearch Editorial Review – Since 1995, CaffĂ© Vita has opened five Seattle locations and become a social hub for coffee connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike. CaffĂ© Vita is a certified organic coffee roaster and they brew over two dozen fair-trade varieties from around the world by hand on vintage equipment. Each blend or Farm Direct coffee is unique and complex, with beans coming from Central and South America, Africa and Indonesia. The Americano and drip coffees are favorites here, especially the Theo blend (resulting from a partnership with Theo Chocolate), a coffee with hints of vanilla and smoky spices and undertones of dark chocolate. Each location has a distinctly mellow, Seattle feel and has become a neighborhood hangout thanks to the free Wi-Fi, multiple working spaces and commitment to showcasing local artists and promoting community events.

My favorite place – Best beans in Seattle. Hands down. I went to school in the area and these baristas have been personable to the extent that many are now my good friends. So now I'm just hooked. (:

Worst Service and Coffee in Seattle -- Congrats, Caffe Vita – HORRIBLE coffee and service. The baristas all have holier-than-thou attitudes and refuse to make good drinks. Been there three times, all someone else's choice, and although the first time was decent, the second time I went my drink tasted seriously funky. I asked them to remake it and they said "Keep drinking it; it's fine." Went there last night for the third time, and they burned the beans. All of our drinks were disgusting. This time, thankfully, they remade them all. The baristas are lazy jerks and the coffee isn't fit for Seattle. At all. Ever. No exceptions. BLAK Caffe Vita.

I must say the service is totally unfriendly – I was at the Capital Hill location on Saturday mid morning and I am always met with such disdain. I usually will get an americano when I'm in that part of town which is like twice a month. I've had this schedule now for like almost a year and just .......no one there wants to be at work but being some what human would be nice. The coffee beans are great. Always buy a 1lb. or 2 lbs. worth with my americano. Just not friendly. I always say hi and thanks and leave a tip but I'm thinking about just not going there anymore. I work at Fred Hutch. I'll just get my fix of Cafe Vita there. Not as good of an americano but hey those people are way nicer.

Favorite cafe on the hill. – Sometimes I want to use my laptop, and sometimes I just want to chat with a friend. Caffe Vita is perfect for both. Although the internet connection is a bit slow. The staff look artsy and vain or disconnected but they're all very nice, alert and helpful, and they've always been this way over the years. The coffee is always wonderful and they usually have some good pastries too.

why so unfriendly? – great espresso, lousy service. rarely get eye contact, rarely acknowledged... wondering who they are waiting to serve that is up to par? i love the espresso - it's perfectly roasted, but a friendlier staff would do them well - i prefer vivace down the street far and above.

Editorial Review – Bright, cheerful double-decker Capitol Hill coffeeshop does a brisk business with SCCC and Seattle University students.

Not Good – The place blows. I'm refering to worldhead quarters on Capital Hill. For a place making coffee the key area of sale they ought to make the espresso have some flavor. Spend some money and hire someone to make better coffee.
