Back in March we learned the former Trohv space would be subdivided into four units and now we know one will be a Starbucks. Thanks to A.S.K. for sending:

“Starbucks is one of the businesses replacing Trohv in Takoma!”

Ed. Note: Don’t forget the excellent La Mano Coffee Bar is just down the street at 304 Carroll Street, NW.

Their website says:

“Emissary is a coffeehouse, bar, and cafe located in Washington DC’s historic Dupont Circle neighborhood, just below Dupont Circle Yoga.

We believe in the Swedish notion of “fika” – taking a moment to have coffee, slow down, and contemplate on your own, or to gather with friends, and savor the moment.

Our coffeehouse features selections from Counter Culture, our beer and cocktail menu is local- and mid-atlantic centric, our wine list global. Chef Matthew Whaley’s menu is vegetable centric and most items are vegetarian and vegan-friendly – but omnivores need not worry, we’ll have rich baked goods, pastries, artisanal cheeses, and charcuterie.”

From a press release:

“Songbyrd Record Café now offers high quality nitrogen infused cold brew and cold brew latte from Swings Coffee Roasters. Songbyrd is the first establishment in Adams Morgan to offer nitro cold brew, just in time for some of the summer’s hottest weather. On Adams Morgan Day Sunday September 11, Songbyrd will offer Kombucha and Nitro Cold Brew for sale on tap from their front patio.

Adding nitrogen to cold brew enhances the coffee’s flavor and adds a subtle sweetness. The cold brew coffee is treated with nitrogen under high pressure, then chilled in a keg and served on draught. The nitrogen infusion provides a velvety mouth feel. The tiny bubbles make the drink seem thicker as it goes down. (more…)
