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.

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.
