Staying with a friend last week a couple blocks away, I started my day at the newest location of Temple Coffee Roasters on 22nd & K. The much talked about floor and counter facings paved with 500,000+ pennies are stunning. The shop is outfitted with multiple modes of brewing.
I kept it simple, ordering a pourover with Nicaraguan Misael Olibera Sauceda. Wow, this one has it all. Plenty of intensity with a chocolate-y middle, yet bright with fruit accents and a lively finish. This one's rich, not wimpy, and still smooth and polished enough for me to drink black.
For my breakfast nosh, monkey bread, that was indeed more bread-like than a morning pastry and too plain for me.
Wish I'd had more time to linger here. Staff were friendly and educational, and I liked that my coffee was brought to my table.
