DC: Chinatown Coffee Company

Chinatown Coffee Company
Address: 475 H Street Northwest
Neighbourhood: Chinatown
website, @twitter, (202) 559-7656

Driving through downtown Washington was a throw back into the fusion of American architecture and modern design. Not only were the office buildings relics of the 1950/60s, but the streets felt like freeways. Letters and numbered streets makes it easy to navigate.
As we rolled along with traffic, the typical archway into Chinatown signalled our arrival

Taking over the former Murky Coffee space - an iconic North-Eastern cafe starting the conversation going for DC area shops.

Transforming the space into a cool sleek location.
They served Intelli, Counter, and another roaster

Drink: Handpour from the Clever
Beans: SO Bolivian
Roasters: Intelligenstia
Located: Chicago, IL

Verdict: Rich chocolate, berry fruits, clean, mellow acidity.

They also serve alcoholic drinks - but be impressed with their ipad cash register system, free wifi, and knowledgeable barista.
Rocking the LM FB5, with Mazzer Robur.
Killing the DC scene.

Glad I was able to take in this cafe.
Caffeine Level after 3 stops: relatively high.
(tune in next Tuesday for more US cafe showcase)
