From La Mano Coffee Bar via Old Takoma Business Association:

“After 5 years, I am sad to announce that I will be moving on from la mano on March 5th, 2018. Over coming weeks, my staff and I want to thank all of you in person, see our favorite people, and give you a chance to stock up on your favorites. Keep an eye out for specials and sales throughout the month.

While uncertain, there may be upcoming news on a possible new future for la mano that we will share. Otherwise the business will close with my departure. (more…)
