Being a hipster requires frequent energy boosts, as the need to discover the next happening hangout before the other hipsters ruin it allows little time for sleep. Keep your cool caffeinated with today's Groupon to Qualia Coffee in Petworth. For $7, you get a 12-oz. bag of Fresh Off the Roast coffee ($10 value), one cup of Pick-Your-Bean individually brewed coffee ($2.50 value), and 20% off any additional bags of coffee, food, espresso drinks, and brewed coffees you care to purchase that day.
Having made their name in local farmer's markets and risen through the ranks of brutal, no-holds-brewed, local coffee kumites, Fresh Off the Roast's roasts run the gamut from light to dark. They source beans from around the world, recently featuring coffees from Ethiopia, Kenya, Indonesia, Honduras, Peru, and more. Fresh Off the Roast has helpfully provided brewing tips and techniques for getting the most out of your roast.
If you're overwhelmed by the options and don't remember the How to Tell Coffee Beans Apart video that everyone had to watch in health class, Qualia will happily let you try before you buy. The beans will be ground and brewed fresh as you watch through an unnecessary pair of binoculars. Once you've made your selection, you won't have to wait till you get home to sate your java jones. Savor a cup of fresh-brewed Pick-Your-Bean bean juice over an accompaniment of fresh-baked local delights from Paisley Fig, bagels from Georgetown Bagelry, and free WiFi.
Your 20% discount does not include retail items, such as grinders, brewers, and wall art.
- Not only does Qualia roast their own coffee, making their product some of the absolute freshest in the District, but they actually have their lovely forest green roaster on display for customers to see….The Nicaraguan blend is nutty and savory with notes of vanilla. – Stacy Williams, Baltimore Examiner
