From a press release:

“Small Planes Coffee is excited to open the doors of our roasting facility to the public! In June 2017, Small Planes Coffee began roasting coffee at 2400 T St NE near the National Arboretum. We are now thrilled to welcome our northeast DC neighbors, Arboretum visitors, and coffee lovers throughout the region into our roastery on Saturdays from 9am-2pm

Each week, we will choose one coffee from our catalog to brew. That featured coffee will be on sale as a 12 ounce bag of whole beans at a discounted $9.99 price. Visitors will also be able to select from the rest of our whole bean offerings and home brewing equipment. We are currently pairing our coffee with sweet and savory kolaches from Republic Kolache.

Beginning on May 20, we will begin offering Roastery Tours and Tastings.

Tours last about one hour and provide an overview of our company, sourcing, and coffee roasting followed by a comparative tasting. Find more details and registration at
