If you have any questions you’d like me to answer about PoPville or general topics to be covered please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘What’d I Miss’ in the subject line. You can ask really anything you’d like – from specific to philosophical. But no grammar questions. You can also tweet questions to @PoPville though I prefer email if possible. I’m gonna try to keep this less than 10 minutes. What’d I Miss? is done on one take with no editing.

“Are you passionate about your coffee? Do you dream about the perfect cup of Joe?

Then join us on Saturday, Jan. 31, at 1 p.m. for Coffee 101 as we welcome Compass Coffee’s lead roaster, Brandon Warner, and co-founder Michael Haft for an engaging lecture/presentation on the history of coffee, the various regions where it is grown and harvested, and the process of the perfect roast.

The program will culminate in demonstrating a number of brewing methods as well as a cupping and tasting of selected blends.

Our Shaw neighbors make some pretty awesome coffee!

Last week a reader sent a link to an online auction of their kitchen goods and today from Casa Oaxaca:

“Dear Amigos,

Casa Oaxaca will be opening its doors for the last time on Friday January 30. Thank you for over 7 years of amazing dishes, moments, and memories in Adams Morgan — we could not have done it without your support!

We hope to see your friendly faces during our last week of operations. Food and drink specials will be on the menu from Tuesday, January 27 through Friday, January 30.

Relocation and a brand new concept (with the same authentic flavors of Mexico) are in the works! In the meantime, come enjoy our famous mole sauces and award wining margaritas at our sister restaurants — Guajillo and Don Lencho — in Virginia. We will also be refocusing our efforts on our full catering services. (Call us at 240-586-1102 for more details.)

Hasta luego,
Karen Barroso y Rolando Juarez
Owners”
