Cassandra's love and affection for coffee
I would say that my love for coffee borders on an obsession. I usually do not drink soda, so coffee is my main source for caffeine. It helps me maintain my high energy levels throughout the day.
During the week, I am at Starbucks at least once a day. Baristas at multiple campus locations know my name and beverage by the end of the semester. I am also the proud owner of a Gold Card.
My favorite beverages from Starbucks include Skinny Caramel Macchiatos, Peppermint Mochas and Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccinos. Seasonal specials like the Peppermint Mochas and Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccinos are often available to try when they are first released, so make sure to taste them!
Also, I have enjoyed going to local coffee shops around Gainesville. Maude's Classic Cafe is my favorite. On your next visit there, make sure to get an iced raspberry mocha.
Volta is another spot to hit. Their specialty Drinking Chocolates are delectable.
