Sip a Pour-Over at Detour Coffee
The locally roasted Vigilante Coffee that baristas pour at Detour Coffee helps accomplish their primary goal—to get customers to slow down and take a detour in the name of java. The pour-over requires a bit of extra patience since it takes a few minutes to brew, but you can bypass that complication by ordering online for a quick pickup (or just get drip coffee instead).
In addition to the classic cup of coffee, Detour also offers specialty espresso drinks such as the macchiato, cortado, and latte. If you want something to eat with your cup of joe, order a breakfast sandwich like the Magician. It’s loaded with egg, avocado, corn, onions, and queso fresco on an arepa. You can’t go wrong with the Old Reliable, featuring bacon, egg, and cheese on a bagel, or the U Street with fried chicken, cheddar cheese, and mumbo sauce.
Whether you order ahead or grab a mask and walk in, Detour Coffee will have the fuel you need to make it through another workday.
