From a press release:


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.


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.

Thanks to a tipster for sending word of Compass Coffee’s next location – 800 17th Street, NW:

Compass Coffee recently celebrated being open 1000 days. A couple weeks ago we also learned they were coming to 14th and I St, NW as well. They’re already open at 18th and I St, NW. As for this most recent location coming to 800 17th Street, NW – it’s interesting to note that La Colombe recently opened around the corner in late February.
