The café was scheduled to open on Monday, Jan. 2 at the Fenton Silver Spring apartment complex at 8240 Fenton St. in downtown Silver Spring. The Instagram post cited staff training as the reason for the delay: “…we are currently undergoing training. But stay excited because we will be opening soon!”
A new opening date has not yet been announced.
The Rockville-based coffee shop and roaster, 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.
