Although the service was a little slow, my French Pressed Vietnamese was one of the best cups of coffee I have ever had. It was a really intense, bitter, bold flavor I was expecting from a French Press and was debating whether to get another one (or two or three…). The pastries also looked very delicious and there was a case full of different options.
I highly recommend visiting this coffee shop because not only is the experience of selecting your coffee a unique one, but there are so many options to choose from and the quality is what will keep me coming back for more. The coffee was unbeatable because it was so simple. They get their coffee from their own roasting plant in Rockville, Maryland, assuring that they control the entire process from bean to brew.
The extensive bean menu, organized by the type of roast, forces consumers to think about where their coffee comes from. I now have a newfound appreciation for Vietnamese coffee and it is one of the best beans I have ever tasted. I also have come to learn that if French press coffee is on the menu, it is what I should order because of my preference to the darkest, strongest, and most bitter coffee. However, when visiting Quartermaine Coffee Roasters, expect a wait and come with friends, rather than your homework.
