4E 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:
- 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
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: 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.
