Coffee for the Cure Launch Party at Caffé Calabria

The Susan G. Komen Racing for the Cure marathon is coming up soon! Last year's event had quite the turnout, and this year is shaping up to be even better. Susan G. Komen for the Cure, San Diego is partnering  with North Park’s Caffé Calabria to launch a line of coffee called Coffee for the Cure.
On Tuesday, the launch for the line was held at Caffe Calabria to celebrate their partnership, and to showcase the new line of specialty coffees.

Twenty-five percent of the revenue from eight distinct coffees will help fund free breast cancer treatments and support services for San Diego’s uninsured women and their families.    The eight blends represent the one in eight women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. The names reflect a woman’s traditional strengths:  Activist, Courage, Harmony, Pink Warrior, Athena, Goddess, Namaste, and Victory.


Each coffee is roasted on-site and tested thoroughly before sales and consumption. There were sampling stations set up throughout the party for tasting.
There were also plenty of yummy bites of wonderful Italian food from Caffe Calabria!


I love Proscuitto ham!
Pinot Grigio on the deck!







After tasting the excellent pizza, I'm certainly returning for dinner. Arne Holt, the owner of Caffe Calabria, is a lover of all things Italian, particulary pizza. After many, many trips (as he calls them, pizza runs!) to Naples just to eat pizza, Mr. Holt decided that it was time to embark on creating these delicious pizzas in his restaurant. The ingredients are fresh, and they are cooked in a stone oven, just as pizzas are prepared in Italy.
Coffee, pizza, and great wine? For a great cause? How could you say no?

ETA: You can purchase the coffee on line at www.brewingforthecure.com. Ships to the US, Canada and Mexico!
