DC's food entrepreneurs
The Washington Post ran a story today featuring seven local food entrepreneurs. Three coffee shops make the list, including my former employer Nick Cho of Murky Coffee:
Cho, 32, is one of the Washington area's new young food entrepreneurs. A tireless promoter, he hosts a popular coffee podcast and is known as a champion of "specialty roast coffee" -- the industry term for high-quality beans grown on small estates, roasted in small lots and brewed with care. Cho will help anyone -- including potential competitors -- interested in roasting, brewing or selling, in his words, coffee "that's better than customers ever imagined it could be."
Curry, chocolate, and gelatto are among the tasty offerings produced by the other new businesses. Read about them here.
