Just as my friend and I were leaving Taylor, happy and full from a fabulous lunch, it started to downpour on us (typical DC). We sought refuge under a random building in Chinatown and waited for the storm to pass. But even though the rain only lasted 20 minutes, we were still completely soaked and in desperate need of a pick- me-up.
Luckily, Chinatown Coffee Co. was there to save the day with its inviting interior, friendly staff, and quality coffee. My latte ($3.09) warmed me up after the unpleasant storm, and the adorable heart-design on top made me smile. Chinatown Coffee Co. serves coffee from all over the world, including Intelligentsia and Counter Culture, two of my favorite coffee purveyors. The baristas expertly brew the coffee and are happy to offer recommendations.
Chinatown Coffee Co. also seems like a perfect place to work or take refuge from the traffic and noise (and in my case, rain) outside. Next time, I plan to bring my computer and blog from there!
