Coffee Showcase: Battle of the Mocha

Kianna Thompson, Reporter

As high schoolers, the new trend is coffee. On social media, with your friends, studying in a coffee shop to cram for a test, or just a morning (or afternoon) pick-me-up, coffee is loved by most of us. I personally love all sorts of coffee, but here lately, anywhere I go, I have been loving a good caramel iced mocha and I am here to share with you where I personally believe is the best place around to get a good iced coffee.

Kolkin Coffee: The Iced Turtle

Location: 2736 Charlestown Rd. Unit 5

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.

Description: Iced caramel mocha

Reason: This was actually my first time trying Kolkin Coffee and I was pleasantly impressed by how good the coffee was, but I love a little extra caramel in my coffee and I feel if it had just a bit more, I would have given it 5 stars.


Coffee Crossing: The Iced Moose

Location: 805 Talaina PI

Rating: 4.9 out of 5 stars

Description: Iced Caramel Mocha with extra caramel

Reason: My all time favorite coffee. It was very rich and creamy just, just how I love my lattes. I will always go back to CoffeeCrossing over any other coffee place.




Heine Brothers’ Coffee: Custom Drink

Location: 414 W Daisy Ln

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Description: Iced Caramel Mocha with extra syrup

Reason: Heine Brother is a place you go when you are in need of an afternoon pick me up. It’s is strong coffee and almost has a bitter pick me up, but is really good, also.
