We love coffee. It’s a necessary part of your morning routine, I know I can’t start my day without an espresso or a macchiato. It’s the perfect medium for everything from a conversation with an old friend, a first date, a business meeting, or simply a moment of solitude and serenity from the busy schedule that many of us in DC have. Coffee is the second most highly traded commodity in the world, and provides the livelihood for countless families across the globe. It has kept soldiers morale up, warms the weary traveler, been the cause of the rise and fall of several dictators, and is an essential part of the culture of many countries across the world. These are only a few reasons as to why we take our coffee seriously here at Tryst.
That love of coffee and the knowledge of the affect that it has had on ancient cultures all the way up to the array of customers that come in to have us fuel their workday has inspired us to make the best cup we possibly can. Part of that endeavor has resulted in two barista specials to brighten up your summer, and cool you off from the mugginess that envelopes us throughout the summer.
The first is an espresso mojito. No it doesn’t have alcohol, but it’s combination of espresso, mint, raw sugar, ice, and a little cold water that will most definitely refresh you on a hot day. Most people don’t associate coffee and mint together, but it works amazingly well. Just try it and you’ll see.
If coffee and mint doesn’t sound all that tantalizing to you, and you have a bit of a sweet tooth you should try our Iced Mexican Coffee. We brew our house coffee with fresh cinnamon sticks, chocolate, vanilla, and a bit of sugar. The result is a deliciously sweet and savory iced coffee that’s sure to please coffee lovers and newbies alike.
The barista specials section of the menu started this last fall and has quickly become an essential part of the Tryst coffee menu. It allows the staff to get creative with the drinks that we serve, and provides our guests with the opportunity to try fun new drinks and flavors that they wouldn’t necessarily try anywhere else. Drop by and give one a shot!
