Logan Circle coffee lovers will be happy to learn that Peregrine Espresso will be opening in the former Flowers on Fourteenth location at 1718 14th Street NW. Flowers on Fourteenth moved to larger digs a few doors down at 1712 14th Street, just a couple of months ago.
Peregrine Espresso has been operating a Capitol Hill location for about two years. Owner Ryan Jensen said he expects the 14th Street location to open sometime this winter. The storefront will have about a dozen seats and the menu will include espresso, filter drip, a few coffee micro brews, pastries and desserts.
One interesting service offered at the Capitol Hill location is the “Pedaler” service, which delivers whole bean coffee to your doorstep. Once the build out of the space is further along, Jensen will gauge interest in that service for Logan Circle. Jensen said, “the 14th St corridor has so many unique and excellent small businesses and we hope to contribute to that community.”
There seems to be a growing trend of independent coffee houses opening up in the Dupont and Logan circle neighborhoods. About a year ago MidCity Caffe opened above Miss Pixie’s at 1626 14th Street. Earlier this year Filter Coffeehouse opened at 1726 20th Street in Dupont Circle.
