Pura Vida to open Fremont Cafe

By Geeky Swedes · September 29th, 2008 · 1 Comment

The Fremont company, Pura Vida Coffee, sells fair trade coffee at 200 colleges and universities as well as the U.S. House of Representatives. But if you want a cup, you’ll have to travel over the bridge to the Seattle Pacific University cafe. CEO Jeff Angell says he wants to open a cafe in Fremont by late next year on Stone Way N. near 35th St. “It’s really important for us to have a destination in town,” Angell told the PI. Pura Vida gives away its profits to help coffee grower communities in Latin America and Africa.
