MadCap Coffee Founder Bringing Two Permanent Pop-Ups to Washington?

A blurb in “Imbibe” magazine indicates yes.

Imbibe magazine has published this year’s Imbibe 75, a list of “people, places, and flavors that will shape the way you drink in 2013.”

One of those people: Trevor Corlett, founder and CEO of Grand Rapids, Michigan-based MadCap Coffee. Corlett is also a well-known figure in the booze world—his presentation at
Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans this year had substantial buzz (awful pun) in the spirits community.

You will recall that Corlett has plans to open a DC-based cafe and roastery this winter. But the Imbibe blurb offered another little tantalizing tidbit. According to the magazine, the coffee shop will be followed up by  “two permanent pop-ups in DC in the first half of the year.” The magazine has no information on the exact nature of those pop-ups, but we are going to contact Corlett right now and will update with more information when we have it.

Meantime, if you would like to sample some of Corlett’s excellent coffee, there is a free tasting on Thursday at 4:30. That happens at Canvas, the coworking space at 1203 19th Street, Northwest (third floor). Email to RSVP.
