Methodology

We looked at all apartments in Washington D.C. and rated them on the number of coffee-related businesses within a half-mile radius. We used an exponentially decreasing scale based on distance from the apartment. For instance, coffee shops located across the street from a specific property would carry more weight than those a quarter-mile away. Our establishment counts come from commercially available business listings.
