The DMV's Go To Coffee Resource
Updated: Apr 18, 2022
Welcome to DMVBARISTA
Everything coffee in the Northern Virginia and DC metro area (and md... I guess).
For years, I have serviced others as a useful source to those seeking inspiration, advice, company, and most importantly... coffee. I finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it. DMVBARISTA was created with the community in mind. I have always desired something very specific when it comes to discovering coffee and connecting with the community. I never thought to create it myself. I'm on a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in my mind, so here we are.
Take some time to explore the beginnings of the blog and feel free to reach out if you would like to collaborate on a project together. Keep in mind, english was my worst subject in school, so read with grace.
Below are some features and goals I have for the blog.
The Coffee Locator
A map of most of the coffee shops in the DMV. Mostly surrounding DC and a few notable shops outside of the area. Personally I from Northern Virginia, so naturally I am more familiar with shops close to me. This I hope to be a team effort and you will be able to add your favorite shops to the list as well.
Pre Covid, coffee shops would host a wide array of events. From latte art throw downs, anniversary celebrations to Mario Kart tournaments and open mic nights. It was always fun to get hyped up on espresso and beers at local shops. Some of these are making a come back and I'd like to highlight those here.
The site will contain a vast library of resources on all things coffee. From the home barista and coffee enthusiast to professional baristas and business owners. There will be something for everyone here. The best at home gear, shops hiring in the area, gear giveaways, local meetups, you name it.
With a background in photography and specialty coffee, I love to provide services to shops (and other small businesses) who want to step up their marketing game with stunning visuals. Food and drink are paramount to a good coffee business and making it look good... well we all know what happens when we see a good picture of food.
Much much more
This project will be a continuing effort from myself and hopefully the community. Who knows where we can take this. Thanks for reading and please, go show your local coffee spot some love.
