Happy Friday! This week, we have a collection of DC’s autumn drinks for you! We recommend any of the below coffee shops without reservation/hesitation.

[DC COFFEE GOSSIP] The Royal (Le Droit Park) has unveiled their fall drinks! The one that captured our hearts was the “Relajo Hot Chocolate”! This drink is dark chocolate, Royal’s relajo spice blend, which they described as “mole-like,” and steamed milk. YUM.

[DC COFFEE GOSSIP] Call Your Mother Deli (Georgetown, + additional locations) also has their fall menu now 🙂 First: pumpkin dulce de leche cream cheese?! And in terms of coffee, they’re brewing up a “Pumpkin Dulce Latte.” We can’t wait to try it.

<<We need to travel to Call Your Mother to grab a photo; the drink is not on Instagram yet. Anyone have a pic?>>

[DC COFFEE GOSSIP] Cameo Coffee (Potomac Ave) has a “Bonfire Latte” to warm your spirits. This drink looks incredible. Toasted marshmallow fluff, warming spices and hickory syrup! Wow.

[DC COFFEE GOSSIP] Slipstream (14th Street/Logan Circle) is offering “Sweater Weather.” Besides the awesome name, this drink has espresso, tahini, cinnamon, all spice, vanilla, orange zest, and oat milk. Yay!

[DC COFFEE GOSSIP] Last but never least, Little Red Fox (Cleveland Park) is serving “Sugar & Spice,” a coffee drink with cardamom, brown sugar, and bourbon simple syrup. Yumz.

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.

[DC COFFEE GOSSIP] DUPONT CIRCLE: ala Coffee+More is giving 20% OFF to locals until October 20th! Stop by the new coffee shop today.

[DC COFFEE GOSSIP] DUPONT CIRCLE: Have you heard about Foxtrot Market? The soon-to-open “corner store” will serve Vigilante Coffee!

[DC COFFEE GOSSIP] Dolcezza Gelato just started serving pumpkin gelato and it sounds incredible… ginger, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and butter.

[DC COFFEE GOSSIP] Compass Coffee DC is back with all of their favorite fall drinks. Grab the Maple Vienna, Caramel Latte, Spiced Apple Cider, Pumpkin Spice Latte, Maple Cold Brew, Pumpkin Vienna, or Maple Latte!

[DC COFFEE GOSSIP] Cafe Unido at La Cosecha DC is having coffee celebrations until 7 PM tonight, and there are also other restaurants and bars open in the Latin market after that 🙂 Sounds like fun! We stopped by for some coffee samples and they were delicious!

How are you celebrating coffee day today or this weekend?! We loved this coffee video from international roaster, Strauss, below.

[DC COFFEE GOSSIP] “D.C.’s Armenian community has a new place to gather over slices of layered honey cake, diamonds of baklava, and cups of unfiltered coffee served with imported dried apricots.
