Aditi Chai is an authentic masala tea custom blended and prepared in small batches by Chef Aditi Master. The chai recipe has been with Aditi’s family for generations, and has origins in the most “foodie” of Indian cities, Surat. Prepared, Aditi Chai is distinguished through its complex multi-layered flavors. Each sip brings with it an anticipatory fragrance bouquet, early and late flavor tones, and a warm feeling as it goes down. The tea is spice-filled, yet not spicy; sweetened though not sweet.
Authentic” is an important word at Aditi Chai. We present and share a genuine chai that is an honest expression of what we prefer to drink at home, and what our family has enjoyed for decades.

Blossom Coffee Roasters
Blossom Coffee Roasters began out of a shared vision and desire from Dawn and Pat Loraas nearly 20 years ago: to provide people with an experience of a sweeter, more impactful and better tasting cup of coffee. But they knew this experience would only be possible by being able to source high quality green coffee and establish a roast philosophy that sought to enhance and not mask the delicate qualities and flavor those coffee’s have.
We chose Blossom as our name because we believe that everyone deserves to blossom in this life we live no matter what they are doing or where they are. We simply hope that wherever or whenever you drink our coffee, whether on your way to the office for work, finishing up schoolwork, or building cabinetry as a contractor we hope to be helping you blossom in the small way we can. So hone your craft, try new things, or pursue ideas that excite you, either way, you deserve to blossom!

They eventually switched over to grow and sell fresh cut flowers in 1993. The farm is located in Carnation and Woodinville where they grow 98% of the flowers they sell.

Diane Skwiercz started Street Treats in the summer of 2010 as the first dessert food truck in Seattle. They initially sold their ice cream sandwiches from the truck and soon became known for their handcrafted, made from scratch ice cream sandwiches and scoops. Avoiding all ice cream “mixes” they utilize a house made French custard that set them apart.
Later that year after being unable to meet the demand to be in many places at once they began offering their loved cookies and bars to coffee shops, and movie theaters where they were available to Street Treats fans daily. These days the truck spends its days adding more fun to the many catering events they serve.
Street Treats is a certified Women owned business by the Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)!

Founder Jeff Babcock recognized early on that Zoka’s community includes the global farmers from whom coffee is sourced, the valued team who roast, pack, and serve high-quality Zoka coffee, and loyal customers who make Zoka a part of each day and enjoy transparency in their farm-to-cup purchases. Zoka’s star logo represents new beginnings and regrowth. The coffee tree itself requires a dramatic pruning after 15 years of production to regenerate and continue to thrive, which remains to be the core of Zoka’s mission in their partnerships around the globe. Zoka Coffee Company endeavored to help its farmer sources flourish more vibrantly: Jeff Babcock leaned heavily into direct-sourcing Zoka’s coffee from farmers wherever possible. Today it direct-sources 90% of its beans from farmers spanning Costa Rica, El Salvador, Brazil, Colombia, Nicaragua and Guatemala.
