Topic: Murky Coffee in Arlington, VA (26 lines)
1) From: Spencer Thomas
I was in Arlington, VA for a meeting the last couple days.  I managed
to get over to Murky Coffee http://www.murkycoffee.com/)at their
Arlington location (used to be Common Grounds, still listed that way
in many directories).  I'm not as much an espresso connoisseur as some
on this list, but I can say that the espresso I had there was probably
the best I've had at a commercial establishment.  It was rich and
sweet, not at all burnt or acrid.  They've also got a totally cool
Synesso Cyncra espresso machine (see pics athttp://www.murkycoffee.com/archives/2004_12_01_archive.html).I don't know what it's near, it certainly was not near my conference
hotel in "Crystal City".  I had to take the Blue line to Rosslyn and
change to the Orange line to Clarendon to get there.  But it totally
beat out the *$ in the hotel!
I was over in DC for a couple hours in the afternoon and shoulda
checked out the Capitol Hill location, but went to the Freer and
Sackler galleries instead. :-)
