M.E. Swing Coffee Roasters Opens New Facility in Del Ray
Monroe Avenue roastery currently open only for wholesale business.
M.E. Swing Coffee Roasters opened its new facility on Monroe Avenue in Del Ray on Monday for wholesale business.
Customers looking to purchase a hot cup of Swing’s Coffee are going to have to wait a few more months until the facility’s café section is completed.
Customers can visit the facility at 501 E. Monroe Ave. and purchase coffee by the pound from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday.
The building previously housed Gold Crust Baking Company.
Swing’s Coffees, which has roasted beans in the Washington, D.C. area since 1916, had operated out of a roastery on S. Pickett Street in Alexandria’s West End since 1989.
“We just need a better area to conduct our business,” Swing’s owner Mark Warmuth told Patch in May. “We can conduct our work fine, but our current facility doesn’t give us a chance to showcase our products. … [This space] offers a lot of visibility and is good setup for us.”
