Casa Caffè Espresso and Pastries
Casa Caffè is now open at Casa Italiana – Italian Cultural Center, located at 13028 First Ave. S., Burien WA 98168. (Masks are required, as is social-distancing.)
On a sunny Saturday morning, March 13, 2021, LOTS of people were lined up out the door looking forward to Caffe D’arte coffee and enticing pastries. We had beautiful weather. Accordion music. English and Italian languages drifting through. The opening was a huge success.
Attendees were pleased about not only bringing together the Italian organizations in the region, but also contributing to the broader community. Everyone is welcome here at Casa.
After a brief ribbon cutting led by Andrea Reay, President/CEO of Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce, Casa Italiana Board Members Therese Bianchi, Joe Megale and Jerry Mascio spoke of the Caffè being the first step in the 100-year-long dream of establishing Casa Italiana – Italian Cultural Center. The crowd was thrilled and happy for the Center, the coffee and the pastries.
Casa Caffè is proudly serving coffee from local roaster Caffé D’arte. Various blends of whole beans and ground coffee will be available for purchase. Caffé D’arte uses alder and other types of wood for roasting their coffee. Check out Caffe D’arte’s video of their 1949 coffee roaster, built in Naples, Italy. We are so thankful to Caffé D’arte for their support, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to work together.
Pastries, of Course
Tantalizing, delicious treats will be provided by the masterful, local pastry chefs at Honey and Harmony, and the Belle Epicurean. We will have some classic standards, but also some rotating monthly specials, giving you the chance to indulge in both your favorites and something new.
