The Rockville-based coffee shop and roaster had originally planned for a November 1 opening but had been postponed due to a delay in the café’s final inspection, a representative said to the Source in November.
The café, owned by Emmanuel Manoles, specializes in coffees from three regions in Ethiopia—Sidama, Harrar, and Yirgacheffe, all roasted in small batches in-house, according to the café’s website.
In addition to coffee and assorted teas, the restaurant offers espresso drinks, smoothies, and frapps, along with vegan cakes and pastries. Patrons can also order coffee beans.
