Since both Wawa and coffee are integral parts of the Penn experience, I think it’s only fair that we talk about Wawa’s coffee options. While you wouldn’t make Wawa a destination over Starbucks or United By Blue, if you find yourself needing a convenient, quick caffeine fix, you definitely shouldn’t write off Wawa. Here’s the quick guide that you never knew you needed.
Wawa offers 8 roasts that you can serve yourself: regular, decaf, Colombian, Kona Blend, French Vanilla, Dark Roast, Hazelnut and Pumpkin Spice. The cool thing about the self-serve dispensers is that you can mix up the amount and type of coffee going into your cup. You’ll only get charged for the size of the cup!
Wawa has a latte machine similar to what you might find at a lesser convenience store. I obviously won’t recommend choosing a Vanilla latte made by a machine over one made by a barista, but if you mix a few flavors from the machine together, you can end up with a nice brew. Try mixing half a cup of hot chocolate with half a cup of the Pumpkin Spice coffee, and you’ve got a cheap, low-calorie version of a Pumpkin Mocha latte!
The Touch Screen
In a slightly higher league than the latte machine are the lattes that you can order on the touch screen. The options here range from a white chocolate latte to caramel hot chocolate to mocha macchiatos – and they are actually pretty decadent and tasty. The whipped cream and chocolate syrup topping don’t hurt either.
