I’m supposed to be studying…so naturally I going to write about food instead of studying!
This post relates though, because I am discussing one of my absolute favorite places to study or grab coffee. Doxa Coffee Co. in Alachua, Florida is a bit of a drive away, but so worth it if you are looking for a quiet place to sit down, unwind, and enjoy your drink!
They do have a few small tables for outdoor seating, as well as distanced seats and a high ceiling inside.
The décor is modern and sleek with bookshelves, iron bars, and wooden accents.
My favorite area is the upstairs seating, where you go up a spiral staircase and then they have some cozy areas with couches and bookshelves with games. I cannot wait for COVID to be over so that we can go back to enjoying cafes indoors with no worries…
I got the pour over ($4), which was made of Duromina beans sourced by Ethiopia and roasted by Bandit Coffee Co. I was interested to try a fruitier blend as this one had notes of strawberry, clementine, and brown sugar. You would definitely like this if you like a coffee that is not too heavy and has a fresh aftertaste.
The vanilla latte ($4.75) was made with their espresso, consisting of Ceiba beans originated from Guatemala and also roasted by Bandit Coffee Co. This one was not too sweet and had a slightly fruity and chocolately note. The latte art was also beautifully done.
They also have tea, house-made lemonade, and hot chocolate if you would like something not coffee. I like how they sell locally sourced raw unfiltered honey ($8 per container) from Gaskins Apiaries.
Be sure to check out Doxa if you are in the Alachua area or would like to try somewhere new for coffee! Their hours and updates can be found @doxacoffee
