Thanks to Christina for passing on from the Washington Business Journal:

“A fourth Blue Bottle Coffee is coming to the District, this one at the Metropole condominium building at 1515 15th St. NW.”

I’m guess this is the former Lululemon space at 1461 P St, NW. Blue Bottle opened up in Georgetown over the summer and has plans for The Wharf and Union Market.

Stay tuned.

From Peregrine Espresso:

“FREE coffee this coming Tuesday, September 5, for our 9th birthday. ALL SHOPS ALL DAY. Drip & iced.”

Locations are 660 Pennsylvania Ave SE, 1718 14th Street, NW and in Union Market at 1309 5th Street, NE.

From their Website:

“Peregrine Espresso was founded in 2008 by Ryan and Jill Jensen with the hope of serving great coffee to the people of Washington, DC, accompanied by great service, education and a focus on sustainability. The couple met while working at rival cafes but soon knew they would open their own after they were married. The Eastern Market cafe was their first baby, followed by a baby boy, then MidCity, Union Market, and another baby boy. Ryan continues his 15+ year coffee career shuttling between stores, intimidating staff and wrangling shop managers. Jill helps out with admin and special projects when not wrangling their boys.

1030 19th Street, NW

Thanks to Dana for sending. Yesterday we learned a Gregorys Coffee was also coming to Vermont and K St, NW. Looks we got a new coffee playa in town.

With multiple locations in New York City, Gregorys  website says:

“At Gregorys, we believe that respect for our coffee and respect for our customers go hand in hand. So we take freshly roasted beans grown by skilled, dedicated farmers all over the world and prepare them for you in a way that will fit your needs without sacrificing the quality of the coffee. Grab one of delicious blends and run. Watch us pull you a shot of our one-of-a-kind espresso, with or without some expertly steamed and poured milk. Sit down with one of our single origin coffees and appreciate how its complex flavor changes as it cools. Whatever pace you’re going at, our friendly and skilled baristas will make sure that both your coffee and your experience are absolutely wonderful.”

1100 Vermont Ave, NW

Ken reports:

“There has been some work going on in 1100 Vermont for sometime but wasn’t sure what it was. Well, today I walked by and they were putting up signs. It’s a Gregorys Coffee chain from NYC. I think this is their first foray into DC.”

If it is the NYC Gregorys their website says:

“At Gregorys, we believe that respect for our coffee and respect for our customers go hand in hand. So we take freshly roasted beans grown by skilled, dedicated farmers all over the world and prepare them for you in a way that will fit your needs without sacrificing the quality of the coffee.

1275 First St, NE

Wowza. We really do have a lot of coffee options around town. Two more Peet’s coming to prime locations. EaterDC reports:

“The new locations will sit near big grocers: at 1275 First Street NE, north of Harris Teeter, and next to the new Whole Foods at 528 H Street NE.”

The NoMa location at 1275 First Street, NE was formerly home to Tynan Coffee & Tea who closed back in November 2015.


528 H Street, NE via Streetsense

The H Street, NE location is the former home of Taste of Jamaica which closed back in June 2016.

When Pete’s Coffee opened their first District location back in 2014 we learned: “The company will open 23 new stores in a phased rollout.”

From a press release:

WHO

Blue Bottle Coffee announces the opening of a new cafe in Georgetown, located off M Street and adjacent to the C&O Canal. As the first Blue Bottle cafe to arrive in Washington, D.C., the new Georgetown location is a warm embrace to the burgeoning specialty coffee scene in the community. Guests can enjoy a simple coffee drinking experience with pour over coffee, espresso drinks, and a seasonal menu while observing the foot traffic on the canal and towpath just outside the cafe’s doors. In a city that commemorates the past and legislates the future, it’s good to take a moment in this new light-filled cafe to exist in the present.

WHAT

The Grand Opening of Blue Bottle’s new Georgetown cafe will take place on Sunday, July 9. On Friday, July 7, the cafe will host a special Friends and Family Day where community members are invited to enjoy a cup of coffee on the house. (more…)

Thanks to Lauren for sending:

“Coming soon signs for Qualia have been up for at least a few weeks at Harry Thomas Way and Eckington Place NE (bottom of the Gale apt. complex).”

The owner of Qualia tells me that while construction has been completed they are still working on the permitting process. Stay tuned for an opening date in the near(ish) future!

Qualia‘s original Petworth shop is located at 3917 Georgia Ave, NW.
