As I was out grabbing lunch Saturday, a protest against police violence was coming up 14th. Cops were closing streets, redirecting traffic, and the chants of “No racist police” echoed over the sirens.
As I walked up 14th, I saw a man speaking to his young daughter as she sat in her stroller watching the protest. I didn’t hear their whole conversation, but I heard the words “Isn’t this cool . . . In other countries, you couldn’t do this.”
I don’t know this man, and didn’t want to stop and interrupt him in his valuable lesson to his daughter. But I just wanted to thank him. Thank him for for being the definition of #DadGoals. For teaching his daughter about her rights to protest when she couldn’t be older than 8. For using these difficult moments in our country to teach his daughter that protesting is “cool.”
It gave me hope–I don’t know if this Dad will see this. But if he does, you made me smile and gave me hope. So thanks!”

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality specialty beans sourced from small farms in Latin America that are owned and operated by women. Your coffee will be roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.
As two former Peace Corps volunteers who served in Guatemala, we founded Potomac Roasting to pursue our passion for great coffee and purpose-driven work. In addition to ethically sourcing our beans, we also donate a portion of our profits to Laila’s Legacy Animal Rescue, a DC-based nonprofit that finds homes for homeless dogs and cats.
Our current roasts come from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. We will be adding new roasts soon.
