“best coffee in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

I like the sevice and I think the coffee is the best. Get a free cup with 12 visits when you sign in. Their extra snack foods are from wonderful bakers around the city.

“Bunch of Liars”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

The coffee is good, but they lie about it. The fair trade organic is not fair trade or organic. Four of the decaf beans they sell are all the same blend labelled differently. A lot of the regular blends change formula's from week to week, but keep the same name.

Not only are the owners liars, but they barely know how to run a business. The employee's may be consistently seen waddling around aimlessly. There seems to be no training system in place for new employee's, so don't bother asking any of them about coffee because they'll make something up and lie to you.

The bathrooms are a mess. There is an infestation of mice in BOTH locations. There's always crumbs everywhere. The barista's don't wash the milk steaming pitchers, or the steam wand off. The drip coffee is always sour because they never clean out the brewers, so they're all blackened and moldy inside.

Also, ALL the other customer's there are yuppies. MY GOODNESS, so many yuppies. I don't think I've ever seen such a cluster of yuppies in my life until I walked down Bethesda Ave. Just an awful crowd. Rude, pushy, and entitled.

Easily the best coffee in the DC area. Fresh dark roasts properly and freshly brewed. Best beans to brew at home. By far.
