Thanks to Caroline for sending word:
“On Tuesday, September 3, Takoma welcomed its newest and long-awaited business, La Mano Coffee Bar. La Mano had a more-onerous-than-usual road to opening after dealing with permitting delays and a surprise, last-minute bill from PEPCO for over $10,000.
As the initial projected early spring opening moved into mid-summer, Javier Rivas and Anna Petrillo, the owners, turned to the community through an indiegogo campaign and weekly pop-ups. With this community support, La Mano raised over $15,000 in two months and removed the final hurdles to opening.
Those supporters turned out in droves to welcome La Mano on opening day. Visitors were treated to an array of coffees and teas as well as pastries made in-house. Petrillo described the first weekend as busy and challenging but great.”
La Mano Coffee Bar is located at 304 Carroll Street NW.
