I’ve been obsessed with Espresso Lab for the past year. I go every single day, and I’ve tried almost every single drink on the menu. Getting my coffee everyday and chilling at the edgy coffee shop made fall in love with the brand. It’s honestly such a cozy versatile place where you can chill, study, work, flirt, begad do anything.
One of the wow factors I find in Espresso Lab is their variety of options in coffee roasts. They only have two kinds (House blend and Columbia), but it’s a start. It’s about time coffee shops give us options!
So, here’s a condensed list of my 5 favorite drinks that I’d recommend you try. Regardless of what you drink though, order your drink with the Columbia roast (unless you don’t give a shit about the quality of coffee you’re drinking – you’re a pretentious person who’s drinking coffee for the fuck of it). Seriously, it’s your drink from a 5 to a 9.
Iced Caramel Macchiato
If you know me enough, you’ll know that an Iced Caramel Macchiato is a daily essential for me. I used to have it from Starbucks every day but here’s why I switched to Espresso Lab.
- better coffee (Columbia)
- Wayyy better caramel
Their homemade caramel sauce is the shit!!!!
When I have an 8:30 class and don’t want too much milk to fuck up my stomachache (diarrhea is not cool), I order a flat white. It’s the same amount of coffee that’s in a medium/ large cappuccino, but way less milk and more foam. It’s very efficient and fun to drink, you’ll need to be ready for a high intensity of coffee though.
They use warm sand to make Turkish Coffee, honestly very cool. It tastes wayyyy better than your ordinary Turkish Coffee that your grandma makes for you. I’m personally not a fan of Turkish Coffee in general, if you are, then go ahead.
Chocolate Drop Esfrappe
It seems that their secret ingredient is their homemade sauce, this delicious cold drink is perfect for a mid-day coffee break. Honestly one of the best chocolate-coffee drinks I’ve ever had.
Hazelnut Hot Chocolate
If you’re not into coffee, or if you’ve already had too much and don’t want to die of a heart attack, get their Hazelnut Hot Chocolate. Very very delectable, unique quality chocolate used, definitely recommend as a winter drink.
Theses are the drinks I’d recommend for you to get at Espresso Lab. I’m generally obsessed with their overall aesthetic (black straws look so much better). If I missed your favorite drink come for me in the comments.
