Coffee for Washington DC

Added Lia Café Brazil (Columbia Heights):CoffeeforWashington3

“Coffee for Washington DC” is inspired by Chris Ward’s “Coffee for London 2014” see his: http://workwhereyoulike.com/post/63689687510/the-2014-london-coffee-stops-map
Map of coffee shops closest to Metro stations. Some may be a decent hike, but for some decent coffee. A number of quality coffee shops are not within a few minutes walk of a Metro station and are not listed. Unlike London and New York, replacing station names with coffee shop names in Washington proved quite tricky. Some stations are adjacent to several coffee shops, ones impossible to choose between. However, Metro’s own quirky naming conventions came in handy: U Street/Cardozo/African American Civil War Memorial is replaced with The Wydown/U Street Cafe/Blind Dog Cafe, for instance; Sidamo/Ebenezers another example. Many Metro stations have no quality coffee shops nearby, those stations remain unlabelled. Some coffee shops of note are too distant from Metro stations to include for the purposes of this map. A friend suggested one of the shops in Silver Spring.

Note: map tweaked to add Kafe Bohem (The Coffee Bar | Kafe Bohem) and La Colombe (Azi’s | Vigilante Coffee | La Colombe) — 2/10/2014

Suggestion from: @Maddie_Marshall
Added Open City
Added Slipstream (not yet open but sounds intriguing).
