Coffee & Reading the morning paper

Happy Friday! What’s going on this weekend in DC? Is the weather cool in your city? Have you started drinking hot chocolate yet?

On Instagram, we filmed ourselves trying the DripKit brew method this week, gifted to us by Cafe Unido Coffee Roasters at La Cosecha Latin Market thanks to International Coffee Day! (Cafe Unido is also the coffee served at DC Dolcezza Gelato locations.) The tiny DripKit yielded a delicious cup of coffee! Have you tried DripKit? It was so easy to use — we think it would be great for traveling, aka in a hotel room when you’re in a pinch and desperately seeking great coffee. One time use and no mess. Ethically sourced coffee.
