TUESDAY! Eat, drink, be merry, and help build our new store!

La Mano Coffee Bar @304 Carroll St NW in the Old Takoma neighborhood

As you know, the ownership of Modern Times Coffeehouse has been working on building a second coffeeshop in the Takoma neighborhood called La Mano Coffee Bar.

On Tues, July 9th, 10% of all sales made on this day will benefit La Mano. Tips for our "guest baristas", Javier Rivas, the owner of Modern Times Coffeehouse, and Anna Petrillo, former cook/barista/manager/janitor/consultant with Modern Times, will benefit La Mano.

For every $5 in donations you give, you're eligible for raffle prizes we'll be giving out throughout the day.

Stop by for some great coffee, our homemade food from our chefs Yoko, Joe, and Lourdes, some famous iPod DJ-ing from Javier, and of course, latte art extraordinaire!
