This Thirsty Thursday we’re going to learn how to order a coffee in 15 countries around the world. I know I have a lot of international readers and if you’re from one of the countries in this post and the wording of your language is wrong, please let me know! Also, my keyboard doesn’t have all the accents needed so my apologies for that.
If you live in the United States in a good sized town, you can probably find a Starbucks on every corner. In Chicago, you certainly can. And while Starbucks may speak with terms like tall, grande, and venti other coffee shops don’t. Also, a Starbucks macchiato isn’t the same as a coffee shop macchiato.
Want to learn what those fancy Starbucks terms will get you at a regular coffee shop? Read on to find out!
I wanted to bring to you all two things–a life update and a story I recently read about the Kopakama Cooperative. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, then you already know that I’m a barista at Stellar Beans in Lake Charles, LA. I know, first I drink the coffee then I write about the coffee then I became a barista (Gilmore Girls reference anyone?).
Anyway, I’m currently living at my parent’s house in Lake Charles, LA while I try and save money to move to Austin, TX where in two or three years time I hope to one day open a coffee shop!
Well, that’s my little blurb about me, let’s move on to the real story–The Kopakama Cooperative.
Two weeks ago I went to brunch with my brunch buddy Kara, at DryHop Brewers off of Belmont Ave. We had a blast! We didn’t feel rushed at all and ended up spending 2 hours there, we each got a beer flight, eating and taste testing the beers.
This past Saturday, February 27th, my friend Kara and I decided to go to brunch at LOKal off of Ashland Ave.
The experience started off well, but ended with a bad taste in both of our mouths. (No pun intended). Needless to say, we won’t be back to LOKal anytime soon. Read on to learn more about our brunch experience at LOKal.
