UPDATE FROM VITA:
“We have decided to postpone the late night portion of our Pioneer Square Opening Party. We are still serving free coffee and extending the hours from 6am to 9pm and free pizza from 11am to close. The Tarantellas will perform as scheduled from 6pm to 8pm”.

As I sit here droopy-eyed, imploring my mug of breakfast blend to start working its magic, I thought I’d let you in on a few coffee discounts and events around town this week.

Fuel Coffee celebrates its fifth anniversary on Tuesday, March 30, by giving customers a 50 percent discount on all coffee drinks and merch all day long.

Then on Thursday, April 1, the new Pioneer Square Caffe Vita is offering free coffee all morning.

In other free coffee news, Fonte has scheduled a free coffee tasting every Saturday at 2pm at the First Avenue cafe. Once you start getting into coffee tastings there’s kind of no going back, so I would encourage you too to check out the slow bar at Seattle Coffee Works —a fascinating place to totally geek out on java.
