This coming week, local coffee company Peregrine Espresso marks eleven years of serving fine coffee to the residents of the District of Columbia.
To celebrate this milestone, the three Peregrine Espresso locations will be serving complimentary drip and iced coffee all day Wednesday, September 4.
Ever since they first opened their doors on Labor Day weekend 2008, Peregrine Espresso has become known as a standard-bearer for quality specialty coffee.
Peregrine was one of the first progressive coffee bars in DC, distinguishing itself by being the first coffee bar in DC to offer an extensive menu of coffees brewed fresh via pour over, as well as to incorporate seasonal specials on their menu.
Peregrine has been recognized nationally by outlets such as Food and Wine, Bon Appetit, USA Today and The Daily Meal.
On September 4, Peregrine Espresso locations will be serving a Guatemalan coffee called Santa Cruz from farm owner Maria Ponce de Leal in Antigua. Arboretum, a blend of Ethiopian and Guatemalan coffees, will be served as iced coffee.
Both coffees are roasted in the District by Peregrine’s sibling company, Small Planes Coffee. Guests will also receive two dollars off all bags of both Santa Cruz and Arboretum for the day.
Peregrine Espresso Ryan Jensen said that time has flown by. “It’s hard to believe that we’ve been doing this for eleven years,” he said. “The coffee scene in DC has changed so much and we are proud to still be a part of this vibrant coffee community.”
“We are so grateful to our fantastic staff over the years and the customers that keep coming in day after day.”
Peregrine has three DC locations: 660 Pennsylvania Ave. SE, on Capitol Hill; 1718 14th St. NW, in MidCity; and 1309 5th St. NE, inside Union Market. In 2017, founders Ryan and Jill Jensen also launched sister roasting company in DC, Small Planes Coffee, near the National Arboretum (2400 T St NE).
