Another relatively recent addition to the Fed Hill caffeine scene is 3Bean. Located on Key Highway, across from the Maryland Science Center, the craft coffee shop opened in late 2015.
I’ve stopped in a few times to grab a cold-brew on my way to work, and I am quite impressed. I really enjoy their selection and emphasis on authenticity and presentation. The café sources its beans from Counter Culture, a roaster based out of Durham. They also offer locally-sourced snacks and desserts, such as ice cream from Prigle Family Creamery. The industrial decor is focused on reclaimed wood and iron piping, both providing some serious coffeehouse vibes. Aaaaand there’s a wall filled with colorful, customer-customized coffee sleeves (perfect backdrop for a photo, right?)
Up next? I’m determined to spend an afternoon at the shop studying & trying the lavender latté and affogato on the menu.
From their website: “…we want you to stick around and create some art, listen to some music, ponder life’s big questions, work on your term papers or your projects, enjoy a date, or maybe dream up your next business venture!” So, I’ll probably doodle some art, jam to my indie coffeehouse playlist, attempt to plan out my life, study for the GRE, (hopefully) meet a cute guy, and work on a blog post or two. Learn more about 3Bean on their website linked here.
Meet me there, won’t you? 😉
Stay tuned for next week’s Thirsty Thursday (Hint: I think it’s time to venture out of Federal Hill. Check back next week!)
Until next time, keep it stylish.
