â€œSimple specialty coffee, roasted in the heart of Historic Georgetown.â€ - Grace Street Coffee Website
Washington D.C. is overflowing with first rate coffee shops! Living less than two hours from this coffee shop mecca, I try to get into the city as often as I can. This trip, I was riding along with my husband for a job he was doing around the Georgetown area, which brought me to Grace Street Coffee. I had heard many great things from fellow coffee lovers, but I wanted to see for myself. I wanted to see if the coffee others boasted about on Instagram was really all that great.
Grace Street CoffeeÂ Â is located in a large building that houses other eateries and is a very busy place! Sorta of warehouse feel and a little chaotic in a good way. There was a line to order – this I wasn’t expecting. The place felt alive and energetic, I was anxious to order!
Grace Street presents a fantastic coffee selection. I discovered a coffee and tea menu – featuring coffee tonics too! I ordered my usual, (skinny cappuccino) adding a cortado and an iced latte for the hubby. Â All the coffee is roasted on location and you can really taste the difference! The coffee was super yummy and on point!
Coffee tonic – aÂ tonic is composed of espresso or cold brew (sometimes cold brew concentrate), tonic water, and ice.
As I waited for my order, I noticed FOUR Yama cold brew coffee makers on the back counter. Cold brew must be a very popular thing here, I have never seen four Yama towers at one coffee shop. LOL Lack of parking kept me from staying to enjoy my coffee, it was a super quick visit. Grabbing my coffee, I jumped back in the truck, sipping my coffee all the way home.
Have you ever tasted coffee tonic? Do you like it? I would love to hear about it in the comments below! Next Tuesday will be the last in my Washington D.C. series for this month. I hope you have enjoyed the series and soon will be able to visit for yourself.
