Muna & John at Caffe VitaGoing into this internship I was extremely skeptical about just what exactly a coffee company could teach me, and now I realize that it can teach me a great deal. Caffé Vita is a company that puts a lot of thought into how their products are made, sold, and marketed.

Before Caffé  Vita I had no idea about the farm direct system. Now I know that farm direct is when a product goes directly from a farm, to the company they are selling to, and then directly to the consumer. Caffé Vita’s farm direct system is just one reason why they produce a superior product.

I believe that Caffe Vita is a superior product because of the way the company tries its hardest to supply the customer with just what they need. From the selections of coffees to choose from, the multiple methods the Caffé  is brewed, and its emphasis on sustainable farming, Caffé  Vita is keeping everyone satisfied while still selling affordable, good tasting coffee.

Caffé  Vita is very community oriented. As a lifestyle brand they cater to the community around them, and understand their community is a key part of successfully marketing their company. When learning about the Caffe Vita lifestyle I started to think about my own, and I have come to the conclusion that theirs is not a specific lifestyle brand for me. Where I buy my make up has a completely different lifestyle brand than where I choose to buy my snowboarding gear. Who I am is made up of many different parts, and that is exactly how I would describe my own individual lifestyle brand.

While learning about what Caffé Vita is about, I have also been thinking about what I am about. I’m quickly learning that having a good sense of awareness is extremely important in knowing what you want out of your work environment, or just out of your life in general. This internship has allowed me to think about what I want, and also about what is available to me. This experience has been eye opening.

We have the most awesome E.D. ever. Period.

We’re feeling really refreshed and loved at the tSB office today after a successful Soirée last week. Big shout out to our Peer Leaders (second-year tSBers) for their phenomenal energy and presence!

Family Circus

Thursday evening was graced with the signature Seattle rain: a dripping ocean from an icy gray sky with gusts of chilly wind between the drops. In the midst of the pelting downpour, within the shelter of warm velvety walls in the Georgetown Ballroom, was an epic event readying to unfold.

The smell of salty popcorn, corn dog hors d’oeuvres, and cotton candy circulated the room as youth tSBand, Smooth Technique, jammed out R&B and jazz tunes onstage. tSB youth were out and about, mingling and handling all the details to make sure the night ran smoothly, from the neatly folded napkins to the perfected heartfelt speeches about how tSB changed them as young adults. An aerialist danced in the air, our clown photographer Desiree (tSB alumnae!) snapped stills, and Patrick Wrights‘ circus-themed was spammed with happy faces as dapper youth and mentors served platters of food by The Leary Traveler

It was a great night to remember with heartfelt stories from the youth about how tSB has changed them as young adults, and a perfect opportunity for the them to mingle with the community whose support made it all possible. The soiree truly was a tSB family-made effort, and we appreciate everyone who attended and contributed to another year dedicated to pushing growing edges.

Dynamic Duo, PL Baati and mentor Aldrin!


If you missed it, tSB is here year round! Check out the photos from the photo booth and Desiree Gross, and a clip made by the tSB youth for you!

Great way to introduce  the holidays with a bang!
