ARLnow Weekend Discussion

It’s been quite a week for restaurant news around Arlington County.

Today marked the opening of a new Dunkin’ Donuts in Virginia Square, while Kung Fu Tea is another new arrival, this time in Clarendon.

And looking ahead, an Indian restaurant is set to arrive in Ballston, while the Chercher Ethiopian restaurant is aiming to open this winter in Courthouse.

In other news you might have missed this week, the county celebrated PARK(ing) Day today at six sites, and a Wakefield High School teacher is a finalist for Virginia Teacher of the Year.

The effects of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are being keenly felt here, both by a family with connections in both Texas and Florida, and by anyone looking to buy gas in Arlington.

These were our most read stories of the week:

  1. Man Sentenced to 32 Years in Prison for 2016 Homicide

  3. Virginia Hospital Center Plans Big Expansion After County Land Swap

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality specialty beans sourced from small farms in Latin America that are owned and operated by women. Your coffee will be roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.

As two former Peace Corps volunteers who served in Guatemala, we founded Potomac Roasting to pursue our passion for great coffee and purpose-driven work. In addition to ethically sourcing our beans, we also donate a portion of our profits to Laila’s Legacy Animal Rescue, a DC-based nonprofit that finds homes for homeless dogs and cats.

Our current roasts come from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. We will be adding new roasts soon. If you are local, there’s a good chance we can deliver to your door. Look for us at local farmers’ markets beginning this spring.
