Penstock Coffee Shop & Roastery

I realized just how much I love matcha at Penstock Coffee Shop & Roastery. The refreshing Iced Matcha Almond Latte is a must! This drink blends the earthy notes of matcha with the creamy richness of almond milk, creating a symphony of flavors that dance on your palate with every sip.

Matcha is the perfect drink for any time of the day, depending on when a daily boost is necessary! Perfect for a warm day or whenever you crave a refreshing pick-me-up, this latte is a delightful fusion of matcha and happiness.

Hidden Grounds Coffee

Step into Hidden Grounds Coffee and treat yourself to the soothing Lavender Honey Latte. Infused with fragrant lavender and sweetened with a touch of honey, this latte has a floral aroma with the sweetness of honey, creating a comforting and indulgent experience.

This coffee shop is a delightful hidden gem that provides an undeniably cozy environment. If you're looking for a delicious spring beverage, this is the place to try! 

It also offers a seasonal flavor each semester, so there’s always something to look forward to. Hidden Grounds is an excellent choice because it's the perfect secluded spot to relax or get some work done. Savor the delicate balance of flavors and treat yourself to this latte!

Khyber Coffee & Tea House

At Khyber Coffee & Tea House, try the Cafe Mocha. Combining the boldness of espresso with the velvety smoothness of chocolate, this drink is a perfect balance of sweetness. Mastering the balance of schoolwork can be a challenge, but luckily, there's a beverage for that.

The robust flavor of espresso is complemented by the sweetness of chocolate, resulting in a harmonious blend of bitter and sweet that is sure to satisfy your cravings. Whether you need a morning boost or a luxurious afternoon treat, the Cafe Mocha at Khyber Coffee & Tea House is the perfect choice for relaxing and enjoying the sweetness of life.

Because campus life can become hectic, our coffee spots are essential. By exploring these cafés, though, you can easily locate your favorite beverage. From Penstock's Iced Matcha Almond Latte to Hidden Grounds' Lavender Honey Latte and Khyber's Cafe Mocha, each sip is an adventure. Let's enjoy these moments, bonding over brews and connections.
