Espresso Vivace's gran bar on Broadway is a 2,000-square-foot facility dedicated to making una bella tazza di caffe (a beautiful cup of coffee). The curved, Italian-style, stand-up bar topped with brown marble pays homage to the old roasteria, which was lost in an eminent domain seizure back in 2008. Husband-and-wife team David Schomer and Geneva Sullivan roast shade-grown arabica and robusta beans on-site, to create Vivace’s signature espresso vita and espresso dolce blends. Serious coffee lovers can even purchase a green-bean blend suitable for at-home roasting. 

Insider Tip:

If you're looking to work, the cafe offers free wireless and wired ethernet ports in the study, while outdoor patio provides an ideal spot for Capitol Hill people watching.
