I write this as I drink a cup of coffee. With ice. Oh, the horror.
I made the above posts back in mid-2008. Needless to say, I enjoy ice in my coffee and was a bit incensed by this local coffee owner & his nazi-like coffee fanaticism.
What goes around comes around:
Washington Business Journal
Nicholas Cho, the former owner of the now-defunct Murky Coffee in D.C. and Arlington, has been charged with 82 counts of tax fraud.
Cho surrendered to authorities Tuesday and was booked by the District's Metropolitan Police Department.
Cho could face up to 180 days imprisonment and criminal fines of $5,000, plus restitution and court costs, if convicted on each charge, according to a press release from the D.C. Office of Tax and Revenue.
According to court documents, Cho allegedly failed to file timely monthly sales tax returns and make tax payments between Dec. 20, 2004, and Jan. 31, 2008, the tax office said. In total, Cho owes more than $100,000 plus penalties, interest and possible fines, the tax office said.
Cho’s tax problems were made public in 2008, when Murky Coffee was evicted from its Capitol Hill location. Murky Coffee’s Arlington branch was closed later.
Cho moved on to serve in a managerial capacity at, which opened in late July at 475 H St. NW.
In a statement, Chinatown Coffee owner Max Brown, said Travis Edwards will be taking over the position of general manager Nov. 1.
"If these allegations are true, we are deeply disturbed and everyone should be held accountable for their actions," Brown said.
