If you haven’t heard of our limited supply Colombia La Vega before, it’s beyond time to give it a try. With notes of blueberry, strawberry, and milk chocolate in the cup, this natural coffee is a tastebud pleaser!

Finca La Vega belongs to the Taborda Rojas family. It is located in the village of San José outside the municipality of Amagá in Southwestern Antioquia Colombia, at an elevation of 1800-1900 meters. The farm has an extension of about 3 hectares of which 25% are planted in forest and the rest contains the farmhouse and the coffee plantation of 13.000 coffee trees. The varietals grown are Castillo Rosario, Cenicafé 1 and Pink Bourbon.

This coffee from our friend at @paisacoffeellc is processed naturally, fermented anaerobically for 60 hours. #specialtycoffee #coffeeroaster #dccoffee #colombiacoffee #paisacoffeellc #swingscoffee

🚨NEW COFFEE ALERT🚨

The drying mill, Las Lajas, is one of the best micro mills in Costa Rica and is well known for its exceptional drying techniques for natural and honey-processed coffees. Oscar and Francisca are constantly experimenting and developing new processing techniques to create the best possible coffees. In the cup, we get notes of chocolate, cherry, mango, and sweet tea.

The Alma Negra natural process is defined by selective harvesting of only the ripest cherries. These cherries are washed and moved to patios for drying and are moved intermittently throughout the morning, then capped and covered in the afternoon and evenings.

This is a very special coffee, so be sure to grab a bag before it’s gone! #specialtycoffee #coffeeroaster #dccoffee #pyt #fyp #coffee #visitalexandria #visitwashington #washingtondc #coffeelover #coffeebar #laslajas #swingscoffee

So very happy right now. Just completed my subscription order for Diplomat. Oh, how I miss sipping GREAT DC coffee. My mornings are about to become a lot more beautiful!
Why you should move to NOVA. Reason #4: Swing's Coffee Roasters.
any online coupon codes?

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!
