Last week the rumor that the Starbucks at 21st and P is closing. This follows the closure of another Starbucks in Dupont at 1301 Connecticut Avenue, NW as well as the coming closure of one in Glover Park next month and the one on 77 H Street, NW.
And now Robin reports:
“Just saw a Starbucks location is closing (near Chinatown). Curious if you’ve heard any rumblings as to why or what’s going in its place? It’s always crowded when I’m there…”

A reader shares some scuttlebutt: “I heard a rumor that the Starbucks at 21st and P is closing at the end of the the month.”

First a Pizzeria Paradiso and now a Compass Coffee opens next door in Spring Valley. Thanks to Andrew for sending: “Just walked by and saw people inside!”

Thanks to Erin for sending:
“Uneeda Market on Webster and Georgia Avenue looks to be transforming into a new coffee shop. Could be a promising new option for the neighborhood.”
Updates as Buna Coffeehouse gets closer to opening.
Thanks to T. for passing on Coffee Lover? Bodum French Press / Bialetti Espresso Maker / Grinder – $35:
“I should have known better. I love the smell of coffee but, in the end, somehow it always ends up leaving a bitter aftertaste. She was (and still is) a coffee drinker and I drink diet soda. She was (and still is) a demanding coffee drinker. Demanding that her coffee be rich and flavorful and NOT instant. No Folgers, Maxwell House nor Mr. Coffee for her. In her place she has some $$$$ superautomatic machine that takes a degree in rocket science and the ability to think in Italian to coax out a cup of joe with sufficient “crema”. I couldn’t take it anymore, her roasted arabica ways behind the beautiful smile that I truly loved. She couldn’t take my swigging Coke Zero straight from 2 litre bottles. We called it quits and I’m left with some remnants of her coffee culture. I think I still have beans in the freezer! I think a barista from some non-chain coffee place is making hot brew with her now. (more…)
2300 Wisconsin Ave, NW
Oof. Thanks Mark (and everyone else) for letting me know:
