Big Weekend Coming Up

Hello friends,

In case you didn’t know, Eastern Market is set to reopen this weekend.  There will be a ribbon-cutting with Mayor Fenty on Friday at 11 AM and a street party on Saturday from 10-6 with live music, outdoor food vendors and more.  For more on Eastern Market, check out this article in last Sunday’s Post and here is a link to the flyer for the party on Saturday.

We’re going to be setting up an iced coffee/iced tea station on our patio on Saturday to service the crowds and will have extra staff on hand for all those coming to check out the reopening.

I, for one, am very excited about the new market and I hope you all come out to support the vendors both indoors and out.


Counter Culture in the Post

For those of you that missed it, here is a link to an article in yesterday’s Washington Post about our roaster, Counter Culture Coffee.  We are very excited to be a part of a local coffee scene that includes so many great retailers and good friends.  We are also thankful to be working with a roaster that is so passionate about education and quality.

Go coffee!

Beehouse Drippers Are Gone

After the mention in the Washington Post two weeks ago, we sold through an order of Beehouse Drippers that typically lasts us a couple of months.  We contacted Beehouse USA for another order and they said that the US will not receive another shipment from Japan until July.  We will be getting a large shipment shortly thereafter and will be sure to post on the website when they arrive.

In the meantime, feel free to stop by and enjoy some coffee.

June Specials and Post Food Section blurb

Check out today’s Washington Post Food section for a blurb on “The Coffee Lover’s Perfect Mate”, the Beehouse Dripper–available for purchase at Peregrine Espresso.

Also, this afternoon we’ll be debuting our June specials:

Orange Coriander Nyakizu:  A cup of iced Rwanda Nyakizu with orange peel and coriander syrup.  Delicious and refreshing.

Fire and Ice:  Double espresso with a hint of cayenne paired with a demitasse of molasses drizzled-whipped cream.

Thanks to Randy and Lindsey for these creations available all month long.
