If there's one thing college students are known for, it's our love for coffee. Every college town worth its salt has a wide array of cozy cafés to chose from, so it can be hard to know where to go for the best brew.

When you go to a coffee shop in the morning, you generally know what to expect. It's a hectic environment where the baristas are running around trying to make every mocha just right.

I am currently a senior here at Ohio University, and if there is one drink, besides alcohol, that I have learned you can’t live without, it’s coffee! I usually get a cup every morning before class and once, sometimes twice, in the afternoon to keep me going. When you drink it as much as I do, you realize that you have to switch up where you go. Throughout my four years in Athens I have been to all the cafe houses at least several times. To provide you with the most accurate descriptions, and myself with enough caffeine to write this article, I decided to write each description at the specific location being described.
Many people have created a habit out of their morning coffee. They will buy from the same place, always order the same drink, and assume they are getting a reliable morning beverage to jumpstart their day.

Ah, the college student. Never before have you been more stressed out and sleep deprived, and it's almost seemingly impossible to balance academics with every other facet of your life. (without having a nervous breakdown). Like many others, I frequently rely on caffeine in order to muster up the energy to get things done. The problem is that caffeine frequently leaves us feeling jittery or on edge. There has to a better way! There is, and its called l-theanine. L-theanine is a naturally occurring substance that counteracts the anxious feelings that are sometimes associated with that morning cup of coffee. It works synergistically with caffeine in order to make you laser focused, yet relaxed. It occurs naturally in some forms of tea, but adding it to your coffee or taking a pill will work more effectively. Other benefits are below.
When you think of coffee, do you think of hamburgers, cinnamon rolls, beef tenderloin, and chicken tacos? Well, you should. Those are just a few things that after adding coffee to the recipe will take you on a flavor roller coaster that you will never want to get off of. After researching some of the benefits of coffee, I thought why not add it to my food and get those benefits in a different way while also enhancing the flavors of my food! As a college student being away from Mom’s cooking, I’ll take any tips I can get to cook better food.
