I travel a lot and on each and every city that I visit the first thing that I find out about are the best hotels and the best coffee shops. That is how I was able to create a network of the best coffee shops across the country. That knowledge should last me should I do a cross country tour. That was one of the things that I make sure because I am a coffee lover without a doubt. I just couldn’t last a day without tasting and drinking a good and high quality cup of coffee.
One of the places that I visit often is the DC area. I have got a lot of business to take care of in the Capitol that is why I frequent the place. That is also the reason why I have a lot more knowledge about the best DC coffee shops more than any other city within the United States. To help you out here are some of the coffee shops that are on top of my list. If you are going to visit the Capitol any time soon then be sure to check out these places:
Qualia Coffee- The smell emanating from this small coffee shop is enough to convince that something good is brewing there. One thing that assures the quality of the coffee from this place is the fact that they make each ordered cup individually. Also they roast the beans on the shop directly making sure that you can get the full flavour and the freshness of the beans that they use. Their specialty is their black coffee which can be deceptive. They also have a great selection of pastry that goes perfectly with all of their beverages. This place is perfectly worth a visit if you are in the D.C. area.
M.E. Swing Company Inc.- If you are looking for a shop that has a lot of history to it then you should pick this coffee shop. It started out in the 1920s as a combination coffee shop and roaster and it has been going strong ever since. Although the roasting for their drinks is now done in a different location you can still bet that the quality of the drinks that they provide is still top-notch. The décor on the shop is also worth noting since they have a vintage motif. You should go for their house blends which are the unique drinks that they have to offer. This shop is only open on weekdays.
Chinatown Coffee & Co.– You might think that this place has an odd name for a coffee shop but once you have tasted their coffee you can forget all about the name because you are sure to be back for more. It was just a couple of years that this shop opened up and yet it is going strong right now, with great following of customers who want to get the best tasting drink that they can. They also offer beer and other alcoholic beverages there so you can relax there after work.
