Beanetics Coffee Roasters is Annandale's only independently owned micro coffee roasting facility.

This home grown business has become the favorite haunt for the residential and business community. It is not unusual to see politicians, journalists, artists, joggers, or moms with a baby carriage sipping and chatting .
These and other shops in the Annandale Shopping Center form the focal point of the community. It is the heart and soul of Annandale.
