On August 29, 2008, Peregrine Espresso first opened on Capitol Hill. This year, to celebrate our anniversary, we decided to feature a coffee from one of our former baristas, David Nigel Flynn, at Belleville Brulerie in Paris.
Hunapu, Antigua, Guatemala
Cup= $2.50 Bag= $16
David (pictured below) was one of our opening day baristas and worked for us for just over a year as he finished up college and decided his next move. His next move ended up being to Paris, France, where he continued a part-time coffee job while working at a marketing firm. Eventually, he decided to pursue coffee full-time again and, after stints at two cafes, started Telescope with a friend in spring 2012. After about a year of operation, David decided to start a roasting company and sold his share in Telescope. Belleville Brulerie opened a year ago in Paris and have been roasting some of the finest coffees in the city and growing the Paris specialty coffee scene. We are excited to offer their Antigua Hunapu from Guatemala and are proud of all that David has done in the last five years since moving on from Peregrine. Enjoy this taste of Paris in DC.
