904 Palmer Alley, NW
From a press release:
“Robb Duncan, Washington’s premier gelato artisan and co-owner of Dolcezza, is pleased to unveil his newest location which will open April 17, 2015 at 904 Palmer Alley, NW, 20001 at CityCenterDC. Dolcezza CityCenterDC will debut a new way to enjoy coffee made by harnessing high-pressure nitrogen to create a smooth, creamy iced coffee. Dolcezza’s nitro coffee is unmatched in the DC region and is unique because of the way it infuses nitrogen using a special patented-membrane at the point-of-sale using Dolcezza’s own custom recipes and Stumptown’s seasonal, single origin beans. The system used to make this new offering was created by AC Beverage Inc. — pioneers of the draft beer and beverage industry — using their expertise of draft beer technologies and adapting it to coffee. Priced at $5.50 per cup, Dolcezza’s nitrogen coffee program will offer fans their favorite cup of coffee with added flavor, elevated caffeine, and a smoother taste. Additional benefits include:
• Dolcezza’s nitro coffee will always taste fresh because it is only in contact with nitrogen at the point of sale. So there’s less time for the nitrogen to denature the coffee concentrate.
• Dolcezza has the creative freedom to experiment with an unlimited number of coffee recipes.
• Dolcezza’s process will give the coffee a smoother texture and showcase the natural sweetness of their recipes.
• Dolcezza will be able to adjust parameters to deliver varying nitro coffee experiences, from spicy and dark brews similar to a Double IPA to lighter and more floral blends reminiscent of a Belgian Ale.
Dolcezza will also be showcasing their close partnership with Stumptown by being the first in the DC region to sell and stock Stumptown cold brew coffee + milk.
The 1,200-square-foot space boosts a 10-foot-long communal table that can accommodate ten guests, as well as a standing bar for ten that runs along 9th Street. The space also incorporates a private alcove near the entrance that can accommodate up to four guests seated. The tables and light fixtures throughout the space were created by Housewerks, a salvage industrial outfitter out of Baltimore, Maryland. Also of note is the coffee bar and espresso station, which is a custom state-of-the-art setup conceived, designed, and built by the coffee wizard of Baltimore, Bruce White of Perfect Brew.”
