Elisa Bennaton

Founder, CEO, GM

I am unafraid of being different and believe in sharing experiences and paying it forward. With a background in business, food and hospitality, and volunteering, I hope my experiences can support others. When not collaborating with District Mugs, you will find me working and wearing different hats at my specialty coffee and wine bar: The Ministry.


The Ministry

Our coffee and wine bar is located at 601 New Jersey Avenue NW in East End DC, nestled within the beautiful landmarks of Union Station, Capitol Hill and Georgetown Law. We serve coffee from local roaster, Ceremony Coffee Roasters and thoughtfully selected wines from all over the world, accompanied by internationally inspired baked goods, small plates, and meals.
