DESIGN Aesthetics wax and wane over the centuries, but craft and intentionality are always beautiful (if not always in vogue). With its elm trees, copper statues, and Victorian architecture, the residential district of Logan Circle is one of the oldest in Washington, D.C., and it bears its history with stately composure.

We brought this elegance into our Logan Circle cafe. With their finger-jointed, solid ash detailing, these walls manifest the care that goes into every cup of single origin, blend, and espresso coffee served by our world-class baristas. As a work reprieve, or a source of sustenance during a long, blissful day of shopping, park strolling, and getting lost in museums (the National Museum of Women in the Arts is a short walk away), we couldn’t think of a better way to enjoy our coffee.”

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.
