Puget Sound's "micro roasters" were pitted against some of the nations top coffee roasters headquartered in the Northwest for a "blind tasting" held at McCormick & Schmicks Seafood restaurant located in downtown Seattle.

Participating roasters included: Austin Chase Coffee, Boyds Coffee, Caffe Appasionato, Caffé D'arte, Lighthouse Roasters, Pegasus Coffee, Seattle's Best Coffee, Starbucks, Torrefazione Italia and Tully's Coffee.

The results of these blind tastings is that Caffé D'arte won five out of twelve awards. Best Overall Coffee, Best Morning Coffee, Best After Dinner Coffee and Best Companion For Cognac (twice) for its exquisite Gourmet Drip Special Blend and Meaning Of Life coffee blends!

After this impressive award winning history, in 1996 and 1997, Mauro Cipolla, the Vice-President of Caffé D'arte was asked by the promoters not to compete, but to judge the other roasters in future tastings!
