After spending my lunch at Starbucks, I was suddenly inspired to write a post about coffee shops. I love them to pieces.
Firstly, I love coffee. I was sort of trained to like all types of coffee. My dad likes the standard cup, while my mom likes lattes. My poppop always made me cappuccino, while my mommom likes just shot of espresso (I think, but she also just likes standard coffee too.) Personally, I'll have whatever is offered, but at Starbucks I've tried at least half the menu so it's really hard to pick which to get. Anything with hazelnut is amazing, peppermint is even better, and chocolate or caramel is always a nice change.
Besides the coffee, I just love the whole atmosphere of a coffee shop. There's always relaxing music, it's not too loud (unless you're at a campus coffee shop), and it's a perfect place to get work done.
I used to only go to coffee shops to socialize with friends I haven't seen in a while. Then, since it was most convenient, I started to go to the campus Starbucks for lunch and took advantage of the time to also get some work done. Coffee shops are just an over-all stress reliever.
Coffee drinkers, do you stay at the coffee shop, or are you more of a pick-up-and-go kind of person? (or a mix depending on the situation?)
