A weekly curated collection of coffee & chocolate themed articles, items & thoughts.


Coffee & Reading the Morning Paper

HELLO WEEKEND. Good morning from the nation’s capital, where the weather is hot but beautiful today. We just got a PCR test in hopes to see our grandmother this weekend. Happy National Ice Cream Day!

The biggest coffee news in the city this week is that Aslin Coffee opened on 14th and it is EPIC. Otherwise, for National Ice Cream Day, Dolcezza + Colada Shop are dropping a guava pastelito gelato this weekend (!?!) YUM! We also have an ice cream recipe posted below.

The last Espuma was posted on July 1st. Some highlights of this past two weeks include: a delicious barbeque at my sister’s house with my little nephew, watching Roman Holiday (Audrey Hepburn, Gregory Peck), an entire day with a friend filled with art and nibbles at Le Pain Quotidien, visits to the farmer’s market, very long walks through this city, seeing a young man help an elderly woman who had fallen on the sidewalk in Georgetown, delicious cold brew coffee options, finally mastering a specific move in martial arts, buying freshly-made bread, working from home with a friend and hearing about her family history, and publishing an entire opus on ceremonial cacao! Not too shabby. Reflecting back on our week(s) has been a nourishing ritual that we highly recommend. Celebrate how far you’ve come!

If you’re able and enjoy our writing/posts, please support us with a coffee. It means a lot to us 🙂 Thank you!

Wishing you all the best. Wishing you peace. Wishing you time cupsouls.

This man’s style is simply wonderful. The colors in this image are incredible… the contrast between the dark black and the luscious camel tones, and his crunchy croissant and coffee in-hand. Everything just works! Even though summer is great, excuse us, but we cannot WAIT for autumn.

Some Chocolate Dessert

Have a lovely weekend, with a time cupsoul or two, of course. Happy weekend, coffee lovers!
