Just about every street in DC has a coffee shop, but do you have your go-to spot? Swing’s Coffee has a pretty strong argument for being your daily caffeine resource. For one, it’s close to your Navy Yard apartments (only about a mile away on 14th Street), and you could walk if you were feeling ambitious. But it’s really the smooth roast coffee and interesting specialty items that will have you coming back for more. Swing’s Coffee roasts ethically sourced beans from a variety of different regions, and has been a part of the DC coffee culture for over 100 years.
From the most basic cup of black coffee, to exceptionally creamy cold brew made in whisky-aged barrels, Swing’s Coffee has the drinks you already love and plenty of new items to discover. Plus, the shop on 14th Street is so chic and polished. It’s the perfect place to start a hectic day with a few minutes of serenity over a pour-over coffee and freshly baked pastry. Swing’s Coffee is open weekdays only from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., and the website is a great resource for your home brewing needs.
