It’s not just about the cup of coffee

Coffee houses bring soulful sense of warmth

A common phrase that I hear on a day to day basis is, “I need coffee”.
While conversing with someone in one of my morning classes, we were discussing the daily need for a coffee.
One of the other girls who happened to hear our discussion spoke up and said, “You should ask for a coffee pot for Christmas.” I looked at her, then looked at the other girl. We both chuckled and simultaneously said, “It’s not the same!”
Here is why.  

A coffee house is a home away from home. A safe place. A place of warmth and happiness. It’s aesthetically appealing in every way and it’s a good place to stay on a rainy day.
For a student who lives on campus or even off, you have two or three places of existence.  Work. Home. School. Repeat.  You stare at the same blank walls. The same carpets. Read the same text books and listen to the same music station on Pandora. Simply put, you need a change in scenery and simply everything else.  

It’s not just about the cup of coffee.  

When you walk into the coffee shop, the barista always welcomes you with a warm smile. It’s instantly a warm, bright atmosphere. This feeling is almost an equivalent to the feeling of going to grandma’s house on Christmas Eve. The smiles, the music and the interior are designed for the sole purpose of making you feel at home, which is simply something you do not get on campus, work or in a dorm room.

Coffee shops are a necessity for college students.

They not only give you a cup of coffee, but they give you an escape from the mundane life of being a college student.
