“Best Coffee in DC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Must place to visit if you enjoy great coffee. Perfect cappuccino. Easy to visit - off of the Chinatown metro.

“Love at first sip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014 via mobile

Ok, I will admit that I was a Starbuck's chic until I came into Chinatown Coffee Company. This place is heaven... Wine, beer, coffee, pastry, AND wi-fi!!! I am in love with the Guatemalan coffee. The staff is super friendly. If you are ever in Chinatown, DC, DO NOT go to the Starbuck's. You will be happier with this choice.

“If you're a true coffee aficionado you HAVE to go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

I'm crazy about my coffee. And I know my coffee beans well. I love local, brewed coffee, with various methods. This place is not pretentious at all. They know their coffee well and won't hesitate to give you suggestions, or even tell you about other cool coffee places; even though he was a little uppity, but not rude. Go for the cortado and choose a single origin bean

“Too small and too crowded; beverages just average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

Not quite into this place. Amenities leave a lot to be desired, hardly any seating. Surprisingly, their beverages are even more over priced than a certain mermaid-fronted coffee house.

“Good coffee, real people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Walk the extra 2 blocks off 7th and go the CC. The coffee is better, the pastries are not mass market and suport a neighborhood small business. If you go on the weekend, go early and sit in the back or the line can get long and you can get bumped in the seats in the front. The window seats in the very front are always, always taken - but the coffee is worth it.
