About

Morning, Afternoon, and Evening

The collaboration of two cousins, Takoma Beverage Company has been a dream of Chris’s and Seth’s for many years. After working together in a busy specialty café, Chris and Seth became intoxicated with the world of beverages, the stories they contain within and the social world they promote. Noticing that people who enjoy specialty coffee also desire the same level of craft in their beer or cocktail, the cousins wanted to create a place where people could come to hang out with their friends and their beverages, and continue the everlasting tradition of coming together that only a drink can initiate.

Before coming to Washington, D.C., both Chris and Seth had been living abroad and traveling the world. The sense of connection contained within tea, coffee, wine, beer and liquor and how it persists from culture to culture became a great constant of their travels. Continuing that sense at Takoma Bev. Co. is one of their utmost priorities, from traveling to origin and meeting the farmers and producers to showcasing the levels of specialty that exist worldwide.

Takoma Bev. Co. was founded in 2016, with the first café opening in downtown Takoma Park, Maryland, in 2017.

Community

Takoma Park is a close-knit community and being rooted in this community is imperative for the business. We are a cornerstone on Main Street Takoma offering tastings, workshops and events that connect our products and producers with the people of Takoma Park.

Every Product has a Story

Whether it is the origin of the coffee bean or the name of the cocktail, every product has a story. This level of connection and understanding is paramount to our experience, and relaying that to our patrons, whether actively or passively, builds stronger levels of connection.

Service

All servers are excellently trained in every aspect of their work. It is of utmost importance for the baristas to take ownership of the products they are selling and to understand its specialty. This aids for an overall better experience for the guest, but also encourages continued mutual investment between cafe and customer.

Our Team

Cousins Seth Cook and Chris Brown are leading this venture.  Their collective knowledge is a collaboration of passion, skill and execution.  Though this is their first restaurant venture, their respective resumes demonstrate the depth of their preparation.
