Coffee Corner is a new addition to The Fat Okie, this will be written by my daughter Miss Mae. She will feature a different coffee shop each week. So join us on Wednesdays to discover new places for coffee.
Working as a barista for a year is a good way to gain a perspective into the inner workings of coffee shops and the nature of their products. It is for this reason that I enjoy going to coffee shops (with no affiliation with a certain siren) to see how they differ as well as how they are similar.
One of the coffee shops that I recently visited was Stella Nova, which I personally enjoyed. While I was there, I ordered a hazelnut mocha and an everything bagel with cream cheese, which were personal favorites of mine during breaks at my own coffee shop.
The hazelnut mocha was smooth and creamy, topped with whipped cream and made with milk steamed to be warm but not too hot, as is the problem with many coffee drinks. I found the drink similar to a Starbucks mocha, as it was not too sweet but also not too bitter. The bagel was perfectly toasted and came with cool, plain cream cheese.
Overall, I enjoyed the meal and hope to visit again soon.
