Coffee With A Cop is tomorrow, October 5th!

National Coffee with a Cop day is a day dedicated to encourage communication and positive interactions between law enforcement agencies and the public.

The day began as part of National Community Policing Week in 2016 and now continues each year on the first Wednesday in October furthering efforts nationwide to bridge the gap between the community and the law.

“Coffee with a Cop is community policing at its core. The simple act of having a cup of coffee with community members can be the first step in increasing trust and cooperation between the police and the people they serve,” said former COPS Office Director Ronald L. Davis.

Stop by our Del Ray Coffee Bar tomorrow and get to know your local officers and learn more about what they do for the community

COLOMBIA LA VEGA NATURAL

Finca La Vega 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 is processed naturally, fermented anaerobically for 60 hours. In the cup we find notes of blueberry, strawberry, and milk chocolate.

On the southern slopes of the world’s largest volcanic caldera, is the famed Nitin Estate. Their coffees are sought after due to their exceptional quality and consistency. We’ve brought in a peaberry from this farm and are loving the sweet meyer lemon notes and soft chocolate. We prefer it black, but it holds up to milk well and dazzles as espresso.

Now available for purchase through the website, through our cafes, and featured on pour-over and espresso on our Del Ray menu. Enjoy!

The area’s most delicious event has returned for 2022 !

On Friday (June 3), the 13th annual Taste of Del Ray on the Avenue returns, and all weekend 15 restaurants along Mount Vernon Avenue will feature brand new offerings at $5 a pop.

Instead of a single event, as the event was done before the pandemic — dishes will once again be served at the participating restaurants, which will each make new dishes for $5 apiece.

Online registration for the event is just $5, and includes the exclusive menu of available tastes and specialty cocktails, plus a ballot for the People’s Choice Award. Online voting closes at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 5.

Our entry this year is our Beloved Halcyon Latte, featuring our 4-Mile Espresso as a base and house-made lavender honey syrup, garnished with lavender sugar. Paired with creamy steamed milk from South Mountain Creamery, this is a winner! (alternative milks available for substitution)

Hi Swings- can you please help enforce parking violations of your patrons? Twice daily I have to make a left here and more often that not, there are people illegally parked. Here you see two cars parked past the no parking sign. It makes it very difficult to see oncoming cars and is a huge safety issue for pedestrians in the area. This is an area where a lot of kids are walking. I know you all want your coffee- but you are putting people at risk!
