    Petworth gem! They roast their own coffee on site and the baristas are efficient in this small shop on Georgia Ave. Drip coffee sometimes leaves more to be desired but the pour overs are worth it!

    This is a coffee snob's paradise. Coffee freshly roasted on-site. Baristas who know exactly what they're doing. Drinks prepared the way they're supposed to be. No corner cutting.

    You'd think once you had one iced chair you've had them all. Qualia's is fantastic. And their staff are super helpful and open about their food and drink.

    Serves a selection of micro-roasted coffees and yummy scones. Stick with hot coffee; the iced is cold brew only and it's sold at an unjustified premium.

    Soy decaf latte hits the spot. Also, check out the sitting area in the back. A small piece of paradise on Georgia Avenue.

    Extremely knowledgeable staff on coffee roasts and a great selection of fair trade coffees. A bit cramped but the coffee more than makes up for it.

    Great cortado. Small place but you can tell that there's a passion to provide you with a solid cup of coffee.

    Strict about laptop policies, know b4 going to do work. Get coffees as pour over when described as a spice or intense fruit flavor e.g. clove or blueberry. They really do have that taste, no joke!

    If you're not sure which beans are right for you, ask Joel The Roastmonkey for some advice. He'll be happy to help you out.

    The coffee is great, of course, but I could eat nothing but the salty oat cookies for the rest of my life and be very happy.

    Really good single-origin coffee. Go when the Wi-Fi is turned off; less busy.

    They take coffee seriously. Real cold-brewed iced coffee. No skim milk available, though.

    You can get COLD brewed coffee - just pick a bean, and they'll grind and then cold brew it fresh.

    Their coffee is fantastic but if you want to change it up I highly recommend their Mango Juice
