WASHINGTON, June 10. /ITAR-TASS/. US President Barack Obama left his official residence in Washington DC to visit the nearest coffee shop, bypassing the media pool. According to local media, Obama accompanied by Chief of Staff of the White House Denis McDonough and armed guards went out of the gate of the residence and walked to the Starbucks coffee shop on Pennsylvania Avenue.

A communications Director Jennifer Palmieri previously reported media pool that Obama and McDonough plan to visit another café Dunkin 'Donuts, where reporters had waited for the president. It helped the president to reach Starbucks unnoticed. Typically, the US leaders leave the residence in an armored limousine or helicopter.

Obama and McDonough spent about eight minutes in the café and came out with cups, eyewitnesses noted. They were on their way back to the residence, when the reporters arrived. Along the way the president exchanged greetings with passersby. One of the reporters loudly asked Obama, "how’s the coffee?" “It’s tea,” the president responded.
