Local coffee shop Peregrine Espresso (1718 14th Street NW) recently won first place in the Americaâ€™s Best Coffeehouse Competition. Along with taking home the top prize of $2,500, Peregrine Espresso also won the distinction, and bragging rights, of being named the best coffeehouse on the East Coast.
As reported by WTOP, Peregrine Espresso sent three baristas to New York City to participate in the competition. Each coffeehouse was judged on each unique aspect of the coffee brewing experience including bar management, teamwork, presentation and taste.
Competitions to decide the central and western region winners will be held in Chicago and Seattle later this year.
