Highland Origin Coffee, Owner Senait Mehret's Ethiopian-Focused Coffee House - Closed

Recommended Posts

I've found the following about Highland Origin Coffee at 8200 Fenton Street:

Nov 17, 2010 - "Silver Spring Coffeehouse Brews Ethiopian Restaurant Plan" by Kristi Tousignant on gazette.net

Mar 23, 2011 - "Highland Origin Coffee To Reopen in Silver Spring After Expansion" by Kristi Tousignant on gazette.net

May 11, 2012 - Lesaac Ethiopian Cafe Opens at 8200 Fenton Street  according to Lesaac Ethiopian Cafe's Website

Mar 12, 2012 - From "Restaurant Roundup" on silverspringsingular.com: "The Former Highland Origin Coffee: Last year the former coffee shop added a full menu and promptly closed. Now, there's a liquor license application for what looks like will be yet another Ethiopian restaurant...."

Jun 5, 2014 - A Yelp Manager's "Business Owner's Response" was written by Bethlhem A. of Lesaac Ethiopian Cafe, so it apparently isn't owned by Senait Mehret.

The combination of these five items leads me to believe that Highland Origin Coffee didn't reopen, at least not at 8200 Fenton Street, and that Lesaac Ethiopian Cafe is a different business altogether - does anyone know differently?
