JUST THE CAPPUCCINO FROTH. FOR YOUR WEEKEND.

If you read Espuma #44, here, you’ll know that we’ve been waiting 5 weeks for a new refrigerator! Today is the sweet day — the day that the new fridge will come. Please cross your fingers that everything installs smoothly. We cannot WAIT to have a new fridge; it’s been such a process only using the freezer for all of our meals and refilling an ice box every 12 hours to try and keep vegetables or meat… not to mention milk for coffee… for 5 long weeks. We’re so thankful for our other appliances and comforts that still run, including air conditioning during this week’s scorching temps.

Thanks again to our sister who bought us a coffee during this stressful time. If you like our writing, we’d be honored and grateful if you bought us a coffee, too. Wishing you a great weekend.

JUST THE CAPPUCCINO FROTH. FOR YOUR WEEKEND.

This past week was quite stressful — our fridge has been broken for almost 3 weeks (and we’re still waiting on the repair man), work doesn’t seem to slow down (but we’re so thankful to have a job), we’re planning an in-person/virtual bridal shower, and the general “overwhelm” just doesn’t seem to subside. We always enjoy our daily time cupsoul’s, those special quiet moments with coffee and chocolate that inject some calm. Since I don’t have access to cold milk this week, my sister wired me $5 to get a coffee. It was a small and beautiful gesture. If you can, I want to encourage you to buy someone a coffee this weekend; you will certainly change their day! No COVID pun intended, “spread” some kindness 🙂 Side effects probably include smiling. Please do pick someone from your family or friends to buy a coffee for, but if you like our writing, we’d be honored and grateful if you bought us a coffee, too!

Compass Coffee: ‘Real Good’ DC Coffee

This post was first posted in 2018 and updated for media accuracy in 2021.

Compass Coffee feels like DC and it’s not just because the walls (and coffee cups) are adorned with “Made in DC” logo art. What differentiates Compass Coffee from the excellent coffee craftsmanship at other DC locales like La Colombe, The Wydown, or The Coffee Bar?
