Light, open, and airy with a mix of sandy-toned woods and glossy cement underfoot. This is the setup you'll encounter at Qualia Coffee, a cafe that debuted in DC about a month ago. The blend of rustic- natural and modern-industrial elements inside the space seems to reflect Qualia's coffee ideology, which is that its customers deserve the best natural javas from around the world, and they should be harvested using contemporary techniques.
To ensure that only top-notch coffees are served, Qualia's sourcing team is constantly updating its java lineup to include newly discovered beans. That means there's something new to try all the time, but you can always expect the highest quality cups of joe from Costa Rica to Ethiopia. Qualia also offers local baked goods from Singin' the Bluesberry muffins to garlic-bacon-stuffed bagel holes, so pair your cup of coffee with something sweet or savory.
