There is this place that I find myself spending a lot of time at. Maybe it's because I work there. Or maybe its because I have an extreme love for coffee. Maybe it's because I just like spending time there, hanging out with the people, taking deep breaths of the coffee scented air... This place, is the coffee house.
The coffee house is a cozy little place. With plenty of tables and chairs, comfy couches, soft lights, big windows and good music. Not to mention the coffee is pretty rad tasting.
One of the biggest reasons I love this place is its 'welcoming' feel. Starbucks although it's often a lovely place to go, doesn't seem to have that same feel as a privately owned coffee shop. This might sound biased, but I have often found that usually these privately owned coffee shops have better tasting coffee then the "brand name" places. I won't argue with you about it though, because everyone has different tastes.
This place which I love so much, is also a place to connect with people. Friends often get together here to chat. Bible studies come to drink coffee and discuss topics. Old friends gather to reminisce the olden days.
We baristas love the regulars who come in, always so friendly and nice. We love to create art with coffee, try out new flavors and brainstorm new drinks. It's one of the best places, in my opinion, to work and hang out.
I love the connections and growth in friendships that have happened here. It's truly a special place.
do you have a favorite place to get coffee?
