About Us

Originally from Louisiana, Lauren Rogers is a former barista who is the brains behind the Instagram account @caffeinatethecapital. Lauren enjoys her day job at a locally based, internationally focused non-profit but after hours you’ll find her hitting the yoga studio, cheering on her favorite sports teams, and catching up with friends over wine. And of course, scouring the District for new coffee experiences.
Daniëlle Kilbride is a public affairs professional who prefers to be reading the paper with a precision pour over every morning. She likes photography but has little patience for editing, she never thought she’d be a coffeesnob, and she works out just enough to balance out her croissant habit. Daniëlle has been known to take significant detours to make it to a primo coffeeshop. You can follow along on her DC finds at @doubledotdc on Instagram.
