third wave coffee in DC?

I was out in Oakland, CA and had some of this delicious stuff. Any such roasters/cafes in DC?

      Thanks Doh. The thread you recmmend mentions dark roast. What I mean by third wave is a lighter roast- in the Bay Area it's Blue Bottle, Ritual, Bicycle, Four Barrel. Hope that clarifies.

        I'd go talk to the owner at Qualia and tell him what you're looking for. I'm also hooked on Stumpdown beans, sold at Cork Market -- which are also treasured by many Bay Area coffee fanciers.

          Counter Culture -- I believe its mentioned in the other thread.

          Their roasts are generally on the light/medium side. I mail order, but there is DC location.
