Check out Sweet Science Coffee Education


Great Coffee needs only one thing: A conscious consumer willing to explore and enjoy. It doesn’t take much time, in fact, it’s the opposite - it gives us time to think and connect with others and ourselves.

● About Us ●

We Are Sweet Science Coffee

We started out as a neighborhood craft coffee shop located in the NoMa neighborhood of Washington DC. Some of you may remember Sweet Science Coffee from our days as a one-woman pop-up specializing in manual brews in a shared space in artsy Adams Morgan.
That the shop was most likely the tiniest cafe in the DMV (330sf) only helped create an experience of true human contact over coffee. The vision: To educate and to entertain with huge flavor, different brewing methods and hands-on classes. A coffee tree needs to be nurtured five years before its first harvest and even though it was not planned, we too had to grow slowly, consistently for five years until we could proudly open our first brick and mortar shop in NoMa in January 2020.
Three years and one pandemic later, the demand for online coffee classes remains high and we are now returning to our roots of teaching coffee by launching Sweet Science Coffee Education. Our physical location in NoMa is now Simona Cafe and continues to serve great coffee, food and pastries.

Trust The Process

Is Specialty Coffee really so special? The best one is the one you like.
Yet, it is good to know where your beans come from and how many steps they went through to make it to us, and then you. Cultivating Coffee is a 20 - 30 year commitment for a farmer because it needs special growing conditions and plenty of time and care. In todays' world we face even more challenges in growing regions due to war, misplacement and climate change. A Science and Data driven approach is necessary to ensure that we get to enjoy coffee in the future. So you might have been a kid when the tree was planted that now grows the beans you enjoy as your morning cup of Joe. And new resistant varieties will be common by the time you retire, in an effort to help coffee, culture and its people survive and thrive.
Our teachers have the skills and knowledge to heighten your coffee-crafting skills and help you create your daily dose of happy when making coffee — it's all about good chemistry :)


Every time I visit I learn something new and walk away with a cup of unusual complexity
