You’ve been asking. You’ve been begging. You’ve been tearing your hair out, overwhelmed with anxiety because you can’t get a decent morning coffee fix from your favorite neighborhood late-night student-run non-profit high-quality café. But now your prayers have finally been answered.


Join us for our grand opening this Sunday, Feb. 15, when we’ll be premiering our new daytime weekend hours: Saturday-Sunday, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Yes, that covers that awkward morning-after I-just-need-to-get-through-this-hangover-and-start-my-homework time gap before Pi opens. Yes, we will still have FREE drip coffee available for you if you bring your own mug. Yes, we will also have our standard menu of lattes, cappuccinos, teas, and other steamed-milk-and-espresso goodies. Yes, we accept points. And yes, we’re excited too.

Starting Date: Sunday, February 15
Time: 10 AM – 2 PM
Place: Espwesso (Allbritton basement)

Middletown Potluck Bake Sale Outside Espwesso


From Sara Feldman ’17, on behalf of Middletown Potluck:

Ever thought that you could really use something sweet and homemade to go with your late night coffee and studying?

Of course you have. Come to Espwesso on Thursday night for some awesome treats! Pay what you can, and all proceeds will go directly to buying lockers to secure the personal property of homeless citizens in Middletown. These lockers are essential for homeless people as there are no other ways to safeguard their few and valuable belongings, which are often stolen because of a lack of proper storage. Come to Espwesso, buy yummy treats, and feel good about it, too.

Time: 9:00PM – 12:00AM
Place: Right outside Espwesso!
Cost: Pay what you can (but please pay something!)

Espwesso is Hiring (2 Positions)


From Samantha Sikder ’14:

Espwesso is hiring again!

Unfortunately, the senior members of our staff will soon be blooming and taking flight. We are still trying to convince them to take up residence in the Espwesso storage closet, barista-ing by night…

As of now, it looks like we are in need of some fresh, young, coffee-loving faces! Espwesso is seeking applicants who are passionate about coffee and excited to learn and master premium barista techniques. Apply to become a part of our sustainable mission to provide quality coffee to the community!

**Note: Espwesso will be closed this week, starting tomorrow, Jan 20. It will open again on Sunday night, Jan 26.**

Espwesso Is Open January 8 – 21 During the Day – Now Open 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM!
