Savor Expertly Crafted Java at Sweet Science Coffee
Sweet Science Coffee is a specialty coffee bar that focuses on the perfect espresso extraction and handcrafted coffees, using modern techniques and traditional tools. They source seasonal coffees from rotating small-batch coffee roasters, conduct cuppings on a regular basis, and offer one-on-one home brewing classes for every skill level. Sweet Science Coffee features a selection of sweet and savory biscuits, muffins, croissants, scones, gluten-free energy balls, and vegan brownies, which change seasonally. The pastry chef makes all of the coffee bar’s pastries daily from scratch.
Sweet Science Coffee began as a pop-up experiment in the artsy Adams Morgan neighborhood in 2015. The goal was to develop a coffee shop where people could stop and connect with others over expertly crafted coffee. As guests piled in to watch the manual preparation of specialty coffee with traditional tools, the pop-up became too small and the coffee bar moved to a larger location, partnering with the owners of the restaurant Lapis in 2016. As of 2020, Sweet Science is now open for business as its first stand-alone location in NoMa!
