Thanks to FridayGirl for sending from Blue Bottle:

“Coming Summer 2017 to Washington D.C. See you in Georgetown”

and from their blog:

“Washington D.C.is home to a burgeoning coffee scene. Our first cafe there will be located in Georgetown, a quintessential D.C. neighborhood.

We have reason to believe that a cafe with expertly sourced coffees, roasted and dialed in to our specifications, will be welcome and appreciated. President Obama recently ordered a fleet of Chemex emblazoned with his seal. And 200 years ago, The White House Cookbook published this sentiment by Mrs. F. L. Gilette: “Boiling water is a very important desideratum in the making of a good cup of coffee or tea… Do not boil the water more than three or four minutes; longer boiling ruins the water for coffee or tea-making, as most of its natural properties escape by evaporation, leaving a very insipid liquid, composed mostly of lime and iron, that would ruin the best coffee.”

We’re glad to take up the charge against “insipid liquid,” and our hope is that we will have three cafes in D.C. by 2018. Our first, on Potomac Street, is located in proximity to many lovely shops and interesting purveyors right off the C&O Canal Towpath—a tributary of the Potomac River with an adjacent footpath.
