Foursquare Tips

  • Taking down the corner of 17th & G NW, the DC roasters have been a face on the bean-scene for the last 80yrs.
  • The best coffee in dc!
  • Have Raj make you a latte...Look for the neat pic on top :-)
  • This must visit coffee shop is a DC landmark!
  • I don't know why it is nearly impossible to get espresso that is not burnt in the US- but Swing's is a rare gem. Get grounds for your weekend fix.
  • Four sizes of coffee. Jumbo here == large most other places.
  • Super friendly staff and amazing variety of beans! Def try the daily roasts and Eurodark.
  • Grab a pound of fresh roasted to take home with you. Plenty of different beans to choose from.
  • A classic coffee shop in the business district. A standout amongst a sea of green mermaids.
  • The Nicaragua blend is amazing! A bit better if brewed at home though. Love this place.
  • Easily one of the best coffee bars in DC. I never need to take the latte with sugar, it's just that good.
  • Known for their various coffee drinks!
  • One of if not the oldest coffee shops in DC. They roast the coffee across the way in Alexandria. Mesco is their signature blend and it is FANTASTIC. Espresso is great as well as the cappuccino.
  • Best coffee in the business district around the White House. Fun eavesdropping on conversations given all of the patrons have interesting policy/legal/lobbying/government jobs.
  • Cannot function without a double redeye in the morning!
  • Xcellent iced coffee.
  • The iced coffee uses the Toddy cold brew method for a smooth, low-acid and refreshing way to beat the heat!
  • Much better than Starbucks:-)
  • Try a double latte with three shots- you'll get even more of the fantastic flavor of their espresso. It's worth the extra caffeine buzz :)
  • Don't be a chump waiting for a fancy espresso drink. Order a 20 ounce C.O.D. and feel like a pro.
