Posted Thu May 22, 2014, 4:45am Subject: Update on DC Coffee Shops
I don't know where the original thread went about coffee shops in DC, so I guess I'll start a new one. It's been several years since I've been to DC, and I'm wondering if any new shops are recommended or if some shops have closed. Last time I was there I went to Peregrine Espresso and Filter. Chinatown Coffee & Baked and Wired were on my list but I didn't make it to them. I'm looking to go back in July.
Are these 4 still around? Any newer ones that have popped up in the past few years?
I am hoping to check out Cervantes Coffee in Springfield, VA tomorrow. They are a single origin specialty roaster and coffee house, looks like they import and serve up mostly South and Central American coffee, no blends.

Peregrine on Capitol Hill (across PA Ave. from the Eastern Market subway station) is still wonderful and not to be missed. When my office was downtown, Swing's (at 17th & G Streets, NW, near the White House) was always very good and still is. They also have a shop in nearby Alexandria, VA.

A few weeks ago I went to http://www.caffeamouri.com near Tyson's. Parking's tough, but the coffee is fantastic. Talked to the owner for a while and it's a real passion project for him. Espresso was terrific. They roast their own.

For what it's worth: I went on a walking tour of a bunch of DC shops the other weekend. I primarily drank caffè macchiato's (ranked the top four). Flying fish and Qualia run neck and neck.... in some ways I give Qualia an edge but Flying Fish had the best flavor in the cup!
#1 Flying Fish Coffee & Tea- down home chill atmosphere and the coffee was STELLAR.
