Valentine's Day I did not feel like cooking up a romantic meal. I wasn't in the mood to cook. So I sent the Help out for pizza. He picked up a "deluxe" pizza from Italy Pizza over at 634 Florida Avenue. We sat on the couch, ate pizza and watched a movie where stuff blows up. Pizza was good, the movie was mindless, a good time was had.
Anyway, I got an email today about Italy Pizza and a new product they are offering, coffee. Since neither I nor the Help drink coffee, I'm going to copy and paste what I got:
Italy Pizza at 634 Florida Ave in Shaw/Ledroit Park is excited to begin serving coffee in the mornings and throughout the day.We will be serving coffee and espresso beverages starting at 7am including regular coffee, lattes, cappuccinos, and mochas.We are planning to sell bagels and other breakfast items starting next week.We are proud to feature Gimme! Coffee, a small-batch roasting company with locations in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and upstate NY. To our knowledge no other place in DC carries their coffee.We are committed to providing high quality coffee and will be keeping prices very reasonable-- less than $2 for a 12 oz coffee and less than $3 for a 12 oz latte.I'm currently a manager/barista for Modern Times Coffeehouse @ Politics & Prose Bookstore on Connecticut Ave, but I'm helping Cenk (the owner of Italy Pizza) set up his coffee service and will be a barista there in the mornings. I live two blocks away and have been a big fan of Italy Pizza for the past couple years since they opened.Feel free to come over for a free sample. I'll be here M-F 7am-11am.Thanks,Anna P.
