Just a little #tbt to our site trip 3 years ago, joined by our friends from @interamericancoffee & @campesinocoffeeco to check out a washing station first hand in Jerico, Antioquia Colombia. From here, we source and sample coffees for our custom decaf as well as different microlots - including geisha. We will taste these and more tomorrow at the Colombia public cupping.

In 1920, we opened our now historic Mesco Coffee Roasters building at 1013 E Street.
The E Street retail store, with its hand-crafted, gleaming mahogany interior and bright-red, wooden coffee bins occupied the first floor of the Mesco Building. On the second floor, M.E. Swing made hand-dipped chocolates, and on the third floor, a huge German roaster turned out hundreds of pounds of expertly roasted coffee every day. The smell of roasted coffee beans became part of the downtown experience for the next 80 years. The facade of this building still stands today, in the heart of D.C. ☕️ #specialtycoffeeroaaters #coffeeroasters #dc #dccoffee #bythings #walkwithlocals #edibledc #snapdc #igdc #washingtondc #mydccool #therealexclusivedc #swingscoffee

Here’s a little glimpse into the 40,000 pounds of Colombian coffee we purchased, on its way to the decaffeination facility. Decaf coffee should never be an afterthought, that’s why ours is fully traceable and undergoes a natural decaffeination process using Colombian sugar cane. Taste the true flavor of this coffee with notes of milk chocolate, cane sugar, and light citrus ☕️ Available in our cafes and on our website ☕️ #specialtycoffee #coffeeroaster #soecialtycoffeeroaster #dccoffee #decafcoffee #sugarcaneprocess #swingscoffee

Because of all the human effort that goes into specialty coffee, we are compelled to act as responsible buyers and sellers of coffee, treating it with the care it deserves and utilizing it every way we can. What matters to us is the journey this coffee takes and the people and partners it comes in contact with along the way. We believe remarkable coffee is the result of many, from the grower to you and the hands in between.

Learn more about our Home Grown initiative on our website (link in bio) or visit us in the cupping lab on Fridays to join the conversation ☕️

stopped by your location in DC, nice space
You have possibly the best coffee in town and I love going there before work. But every day by the time I’ve walked a block and a half to the office, my hand, sleeve, boots and pants, are covered in coffee dripping from the lid. Sincerenly, Andrew Harnik
Your profile header captures perfectly the barista's concentration. I love it!
Your “4-Mile Espresso” blend is a staple at my house:)
Swings Coffee has a special place on my Coffee Altar!
Great coffee
Would you consider making your incredible beans available here locally in Zip 22315? Wegman's Hilltop Center, perhaps??
Fantastic coffee and cinnamon rolls, love the free refills of iced coffee on Saturdays, just a great place!
