An up and coming neighborhood of Washington D.C. is home to a new roastery. Lost Sock, located in the Petworth area, is operated by Nicolas Cabrera and Jeff Yerax. Lost Sock focuses on selling wholesale to area restaurants, cafes, and grocery stores, while many other area roasters are more shop-oriented. Currently, their focus is to develop relationship to those brewing their roasts. Going forward, founder Cabera, who is originally from Ecuador, has a great interest in developing direct sourcing to that region. Article is written by Nick Brown, editor of Daily Coffee News.
