Astro Doughnuts Popping Up Again at Chinatown Coffee Co. Jan. 18 and 19


475 H Street, NW

From a press release:

What: Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, opening in Metro Center, will host an inauguration-themed doughnut pop-up at local indie coffee shop, Chinatown Coffee Co. In honor of President Barack Obama’s inauguration, Pastry Chef Jason Gehring will serve ‘Obama Then’ and ‘Obama Now’ doughnuts. During his 1st campaign, the President was known to love chocolate covered caramels with smoked sea salt. It has been reported that he is now eating more healthily, but is known to enjoy trail mix. This has lead Chef Gehring to prepare two different doughnuts, which will be available during the pop-up:

· ‘Obama Then’: chocolate glazed doughnut with caramel drizzle and Maldon smoked sea salt ($2.25)
· ‘Obama Now’: oatmeal raisin doughnut with honey glaze and granola crumble ($2.85)

Additional doughnut varieties available for sale on both days include:

· Brooklyn Blackout – devil’s food cake, chocolate glaze, cookie crumbs ($2.50)
· Peanut Butter & Jelly – strawberry jelly, peanut butter glaze ($2.85)
· Crème Brûlée– vanilla custard, bruleed vanilla glaze ($2.85)
· Twink-nut – golden vanilla cake, buttercream filling, vanilla glaze ($2.50)

When: Friday, January 18th at 8:30 a.m. and Saturday, January 19th at 10:00 a.m. ***300 doughnuts will be available each day. Doughnut orders will be limited to no more than six per person, so that those who have waited in line will be able to order.
