Caribou Coffee: Coffee Beyond the Siren's Java
Costa Coffee, in Toronto has the Second Cup or back home in Honolulu it'll be a visit to the Honolulu Coffee Company. In Washington DC it's a chance to visit Caribou Coffee.
Founded in 1992, Caribou Coffee is the second largest specialty coffee and espresso retailer in the United States after Starbucks with 415 coffeehouses in 16 states and the District of Columbia. Inspiration for the start of the company came while the owners were in Alaska's Denali National Park. The caribou is a wild reindeer in North America widespread across the Arctic and Subarctic, hence the company name was born.
This location at 13th & G Streets is one of six locations in DC. More info at cariboucoffee.com.
