    Filter Coffeehouse is a gem that’s become a clear favorite of locals. The coffee is some of the best I’ve tried, ever. The place was extremely crowded both times, which is always a great sign. Read more

    This is the best coffee in and around Dupont Square. It's probably the coolest shop in all of DC, housed in the basement of a brownstone on a quite side street.

    My favorite coffee shop in DC, despite my greater love of Peregrine's actual choice of coffee & espresso beans, simply because the owner rocks and all baristas really do know what's up. Free wi-fi. Read more

    Great selection of beer but way too cold for the ales. The coffee is great if you don't know much about coffee. My Aussie friend was amazed that anyone would recommend a place that scorches the milk

    Are you kidding me? About 15 mins after I had my soy mocha latte, a cute barista asks out loud if somebody wanted an ice soy latte that she made by mistake...Ha! A five second gaze+smile did the job!

    These good people serve Stumptown with a smile. A worthwhile espresso stop.

    I'm not gonna lie...this is an uppity coffee joint for serious coffee snobs. You can frown at the pretentiousness or dive in and enjoy a great cup of coffee. Or both, I guess.

    The intimate atmosphere, the roasted beans from Annapolis neighbors, Ceremony, and an array of preparations make it essential to the D.C. coffee scene. Read more

    Get the Wolf melon berry (or is it wolf berry melon?) tea iced, add just a little agave syrup and you have Kool-Aid for grown ups. It's delicious and refreshing

    Get a latte sweetened with brown sugar. They perfectly steam their milk here.

    Best espresso drinks in DC west of Big Bear. Friendly service, savvy baristas, and great cappuccino & cortado.

    Crowded and elitist but undeniably good. Warning that the French Press takes an incredibly long time to make. Even after the coffee brews, they push down the strainer extreeeeeemely slowly.

    Small space, but worth it. Ask the barista for a recommendation, and you'll undoubtedly learn something new.

    The way the Sumatra is roasted gives it all kinds of flavor, which was not what I was expecting. I prefer mine more deep and subtle. It really does wonders for all the other coffees I tried, though, a

    Celeb lookalike coffee shop! The barista looks like Rob Delaney & a patron looks like Macklemore. This place, in general, is pretty good but costs a deal more than I'd like to pay for coffee.

    Nice place with a serious focus on well brewed coffee. Not much seating, but a nice place to meet for coffee.

    Owner Rasheed Jabr will make sure to customize your experience no matter what kind of coffee you prefer: light roast, dark roast or something in between. D.C.’s an international city.

    Drinks are good, but zero ambience. Only ideal if you are a mole and enjoy being in a dark space.

    Our favorite coffee in NW, but we're neighbors, so we're biased! Cash only if you're spending less than $5.

    Damn good coffee. When you don't need to add cream or sugar to your iced coffee, you know it's good.
