Here is a starting list of Baltimore-Washington coffee shops - all with two attributes in common: they serve good coffee and they care. As "experienced" readers know, threads of all types tend to die a slow death but I will continue to add to this list based on input. Please let that input be based on more than one visit.

I'd add Baked and Wired to the list in DC Metro
http://bakedandwired.com/

They serve Intelligentsia and Counter Culture and have made me some excellent V60 and espresso brews

You're so right about Baked & Wired - that was simply an unintentional omission which I have now corrected.

This is in the extreme commuting are of DC. Would be good for a destination during a spring road trip. Just about 12 miles from Martinsburg, WV located in Shepardstown, WV. Great atmosphere, great coffee. http://www.lostdogcoffee.com

Tryst has been added. I'm not too enthusiastic re Tryst but this thread is, most definitely, not what I like but what forum members have found to be good and worth multiple visits.

I was in DC in August for a cupping class with Trish Rothgeb. After class we stopped at Peregrine's. I had the best macchiato that ever graced by lips. It's a definite.

Filter Coffeehouse in the Dupont neighborhood absolutely deserves to be on the list, in my opinion. They do a great job serving Cafe Pronto espresso and SO V60.

And speaking of which... is Pronto itself too far out of the way?

Thanks Eric!
