During my recent past relationship my boyfriend never topped my love for coffee.
I think when I realized that, it was time for him to go. Coffee inspires me, energizes me, and get’s me through long study hours. I began drinking coffee when I was studying for my first college exams and working a full time job. You begin to realize you are no super human and an ounce of sleep is all you really want. It was exhausting and I don’t see that ending until I finish school.
One of my favorite pastimes is experiencing new coffee shops. I’m a Starbucks addict but it has nothing to do with the SB brand name. Truth is, they make a mean cup of coffee. One popular coffee chain in my area is Peet’s Coffee or even Dutch Bro’s Coffee. I’ve heard from various sources how wonderful the coffee is and I find that to be sadly untrue. After tasting I’ve discovered the coffee is weak.
Beyond trying out chain coffee shops, it’s fun going to the little ones. It’s slightly hit or miss as to the quality of coffee though. A little town I frequent features two coffee shops of note. One is an excellent place to study, thanks to free wifi and plenty of tables. The negative side is the taste of their coffee. It’s truly awful. The second coffee shop has wonderful coffee but no place to study. I wish they could switch places and keep their coffee skill methods.
One day I plan to open up my own coffee shop. I visualize a place that is in a university town and my focus will be creating an excellent study environment. I’ll keep the place open until 11 at night and the music won’t be excessively loud. Here’s to dreaming.
