Subject: Any top notch coffee shops in the DC area?
Hi,

Can anyone direct me to a super awesome coffee shop in the DC area?
Preferably one that roasts on the spot.. I'm in the Chantilly area so
one around here would be great also.

Thanks!

The Costco in Arlington, VA roasts right in front of you and will gladly
hand you the 2.5 lb bag of warm beans at $3.20/lb and pretty good. Their
Seattle Mountain House Blend - "great for drip or espresso" is amoung 4 or 5
different blends they roast.

Same goes for the Costco store in Sterling, VA but that one I cannot
personally confirm.

Brew Mountain in Purcellville is fairly close to you http://brewmountain.com

If you are going north try Loco Jonny's in Frederick http://www.locojonnys.com/

You can also hit coffeegeek.com and you'll find more.

Don't know about Chantilly, but Misha's in Alexandria is great. They
roast right in the store with a huge San Francisco roaster, very
interesting to watch. Very nice people.

Misha's Coffee House and Coffee Roaster
102 South Patrick Street
Alexandria, VA 22314
Tel.: 703-548-4089

Perhaps too far for you to go, but to me, Hyperion in Fredericksburg
is worth the trip (at least from Dumfries). Outstanding shots, but no
roaster. Last time I asked they were using Vita for espresso.

Hyperion Espresso
301 William St
Fredericksburg, VA 22401
(540) 373-4882
