Coffee and Vinyl Records
These are two of our favorite things. They each bring joy to our senses; taste, smell, auditory. Both have also seen technology deliver these pleasures to a faster, consumer driven world, whether it be a cup of coffee, or favorite espresso drink, or the sound of music. We believe that much like a record spinning on a platter and the slow drip of a pour over, coffee and music are both best enjoyed in their most analog forms.
So we decided to combine the two and bring the South Silver Spring Community a coffee shop with a love and passion for great coffee, espresso, and vinyl records.
Hand poured individual coffees from around the world are offered and rotate as harvesting seasons come and go. We’ve worked with Vigilante Coffee to create our own, signature espresso blend which can be found only at Bump ‘n Grind.
We have highly curated and small selections of new release vinyl with a focus on dance music, funk, soul, dub, rock, hiphop, jazz, and everything in between. Two listening stations allow customers to get lost in music and refine their selections prior to purchase.
Our walls are adorned with images of local music icons, events that we’ve produced in the DC area and a mural by a local DC artist inspired by an album cover. Our foods, and custom products are named after legendary music institutions.
We hope you will enjoy our laid back atmosphere and relax to free wireless internet and a community turntable stocked with a crate of records for every customer to dig into and find gems to play over the shop’s sound system or personal headphones.
Come see why, sometimes, the best things are enjoyed at a slower pace.
