Our Team

When we launched Harrar Coffee & Roastery, we wanted to fill a gap in the local market. We felt that Washington DC needed a coffee shop that was based in family and filled with expertise and integrity.  We hope that’s how people see Harrar Coffee & Roastery.

The things our customers tell us they love about us—from the hand-crafted coffees, hand-roasted small batch, and considering customer choices such as stocking almond milk to make our home comfortable for you–isn’t just what we do, it represents who we are.

Every member of our team starts by learning the origins of coffee and appreciating the artisan farmers that bring our product to market.  From there we learn about coffee’s history and heritage from planting the seed to our master roaster’s first sip of the day. Understanding the product makes us passionate; even our families can’t escape our passion!  Expertise is important to us. We think that product mastery helps make us the best curators of coffee in the Washington D.C. area—after you visit, we hope you’ll agree.
