Vigilantes typically see the status quo coffee as ineffective in delivering a quality caffeinated experience; and such individuals often presume to justify their actions as fulfillment of the wishes of "the community". Hence, the Vigilante Pop Up Shop.
On March 1st 2013, Vigilante Coffee Company opened its second “pop-up” coffee shop in Mount Vernon/Chinatown DC inside the rum bar Hogo. In April, Vigilante Coffee was awarded Best Pop Up Shop in Washington DC. Each morning the Vigilante crew converts Hogo into a specialty coffee house with local pastries, pies, and quiche from local DC baker Whisked! Hogo is a rum bar from the team at reclaimed cocktail bar The Passenger. We're excited to bring several new concepts and ideas to this Pop Up in downtown Washington DC. We are pouring single origin farm direct coffees, a quick cup of coffee for those of you on the go and we will feature our full espresso bar producing hand crafted lattes, flat whites, long blacks, and cappuccinos every morning.
The Vigilante Coffee Company is the first third wave coffee roaster and gourmet coffee pop-up in Washington, DC.
