The new shop, which is part of the Pillsbury law office building and faces M Street, will open later this year.
“This location is going to be a bit different in terms of design,” said Coffee Bar assistant manager Jeremy Jensen. “We’re looking forward to expanding to Dupont and meeting a bunch of new people.”
Jensen said the current shop (1201 S St. NW) is designed for more casual visits, complete with a large seating room. He also said that the new location will mean increased foot traffic, and therefore focus on quick, in-and-out stops.
He added the business atmosphere around Dupont Circle helped the store achieve its goal of opening a busier, more prevalent shop in the area.
