New Coffee Shops Come To DC

Banner - Coffee Shops4E has you covered with all you need to know about the two new West Coast coffeehouses coming to DC: Philz and Peet’s. Pick your next study spot wisely:

  1. Wait Time

Peet’s: ten seconds for a normal coffee, two minutes for a fancy drink.

Philz: So very, very long.

   2.  Quality of Coffee

Peet’s: Better than Starbucks

Philz: Much better than Starbucks

*note: Philz does not serve fancy Starbucks-style drinks

   3.  Baristas

Peet’s: Super nice, won’t judge you for your drink order.

Philz: Better than you and want you to know it.

   4.  Price of a Small Coffee

Peet’s: $1.95

Philz: $3.00

   5.  Ambience

Peet’s: Cozy and warm. You may end up staying longer than you expect.

Philz: Contemporary. Think reclaimed wood tables, big windows and exposed brick walls.

In conclusion, you’ll probably just go to Saxby’s. Good luck with midterms, Hoyas, and happy caffeinating.
