Coffee in the Capital

Coffee in the Capital

M.E. Swing Coffee (founded 1916) was named best local coffee shop in Washington DC and awarded the Krups “Cup O’ Joe” prize. We’ll drink to that.

Once a fixture at 1013 E Street NW, the firm’s flagship location is now at 1702 G Street NW, near the Old Executive Office Building. More here. We recall the old store’s refusal to sell flavored beans with a hand-written sign that said “we sell no adulterated coffee.”
