Georgia and Upshur St, NW

The much anticipated project from the owner of Petworth Citizen, Crane & Turtle, Room 11, Upshur St. Books etc., Slim’s Diner, has launched their facebook page and gotten a lot of folks, me included, super stoked (thanks to all who sent emails):

“I am excited to launch our newest project. It should take us about 6 months to finish construction and we plan to open in the summer.

Look for frequent updates here and let us know if you have any suggestions. We hope that Slim’s Diner will be a gathering place for everyone in the neighborhood.

– Paul Ruppert, owner”

And holy cow do they have an awesome old photo, streetcar and all, of Georgia and Upshur back in the day:

The Potomac Roasting Company is stocked with excellent coffee to meet almost any palate. But that’s not the only good news. We now offer free shipping for orders over $35.

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality beans sourced from small farms in Latin America and Africa that are owned and operated by women. We will make sure that your coffee is roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.

Our newest coffee comes from Mbozi, Tanzania. We secured a shipment just before this small batch of delicious beans sold out. In Swahili, Usawa means balance and Kahawa means coffee. The beans are grown on small farms that are part of a cooperative promoting gender equity and market access for women. This is a smooth and balanced coffee that is sure to please.

We also received coffee shipments that were delayed following the tragic collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge. That includes the most recent harvest of La Morena coffee beans from Huehuetenango, Guatemala. We have plenty in stock, so that you can stock up! Rounding out our specialty coffee choices are fresh roasts from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia and Peru.
