Analog Coffee’s Got It Goin’ On
In college, there was this neat little coffee shop tucked away in the basement of the Art School Building. After Korean class, I’d meet my arty friends for coffee and we’d talk about boys, attempt to study and sip the only decent cup of coffee on campus. Danny Hanlon, a former barista at my old on-campus coffee haunt has teamed up with friend Tim Hayden to open an awesome new Capitol Hill spot. It’s got a bit of a Mid-Century nautical vibe—complete with old school benches, thrift store oil paintings and trinkets straight from Kevin’s bedroom in the Wonder Years. Danny and Tim built out this sweet corner lot over the course of eight months, serving cups of pour over and french press to the neighborhood in a closet-sized pop-up cafe while the space was under-construction. If you’re into new wave coffee (pour over, french press, cold brew, you know the drill), you’d be wise to swing by Analog Coffee. Get there before the crowds to sample a more than decent cup in a space that’ll make you feel like you’re living in a different era.
