Nazia Khan is NRG’s Director of Coffee, and the woman leading the charge along with Greg Engert, who serves as the company’s Beverage Director. Cameo has been designed to pay respect to the culturally rich and globally minded DC community; it will rotate through a lineup of direct-source coffee and tea from around the world, while prioritizing sustainable, eco-consciousness, and socially responsible choices – from the beverages served, to the compostable packaging and zero waste practices, to the makers with which we partner.
Cameo’s primary roaster is Parlor Coffee, a small roasting company out of Brooklyn, NY. We’ve partnered with Parlor not only because of their exceptional product, but also because of their strong commitment to sustainability and social responsibility. All teas are sourced from Spirit, a Chicago farm-direct loose tea company, and a menu of pastries and breads will be available from Pluma and Buzz Bakeshop.
