Sip Trip Saturday: Commonwealth Joe
Sip Trip Saturday takes us to a mini city in Arlington. I totally found this spot by accident as it was near my job. I wanted to enjoy a cup of Joe before work n decided to take a chance on this roasting spot in Crystal City. Meet...Commonwealth Joe! I fell in love with their seasonal Honey Bee Latte n enjoyed the scenery which consisted of people watching.
Although I've visited this spot numerous times, I stumbled in for this #SipTrip as a Hangover Edition. We had date night on Friday to see Eric Roberson at the Kennedy Center n stumbled into the coffee shop the next morning in our repeat outfits lol. It was fun having guests join me; I know it's not easy getting up bright n early after an eventful night.
The welcoming space is modern and accommodating. It's the perfect spot to make ur work space when u need a quick getaway. Just walking in is refreshing and inviting. A specialty they offer is cold brews n kombucha on tap. The art from local artists is also captivating as part of the decor. CWJ was born from a mom n son duo with a passion for roasting in Culpeper, VA n cultivated their love of coffee and grew their craft.
This is my 2nd time seeing a huge roaster and I am so curious to the inner workings. I do believe I need to take a quick class on roasting during a Sip Trip-stay tuned lol. I definitely suggest u to stop at Commonwealth Joe's if ever ur in the Crystal City neighborhood by Pentagon City. Their award-winning specialty coffee n cold brew will have u enjoying every sip. They have weekly specials and the staff is always willing to assist becuz I was definitely lost on what to order my first go round. I've tried nothing outside of the seasonal drinks n want anything as close as possible to my fave; Honey Bee Latte, becuz yes...I'll go out my way for this one.
