If you recently met Howard in my last blog post, you might be wondering where we were, since I mentioned a super cute coffee shop but didn’t say where exactly. Well, drumroll please… I PRESENT SHINE COFFEE!
This is the cute little window where the barista hands you your coffee! It reminds me of my Bubby’s house because in the front there’s a giant window and two panels on the ends that can open. So as a child I would pretend to work at a fast food drive-thru. (p.s. – Bubby is grandma in Yiddish. I’ve always said Bubby because grandma makes her feel old).
The Mokaya is a traditional iced mocha but infused with cayenne pepper! I really loved the espresso and the mocha, but the pepper was just not for me. It tasted so unique and I know if I did like cayenne pepper I would have loved the drink… but the spice just didn’t work out for me. I’ll definitely be going back for just a mocha though!
If you’re curious about the drink on the right… it was basically a cinnamon latte with no sugar or sweetener. So again, pretty intense… but still yummy!
Well that’s all folks! I’m excited for Fall and Winter so I can visit this shop again and drink my coffee outside! If you know of a yummy coffee shop or bakery in the greater Phoenix area let me know! I love exploring and trying new places.
