A Latte Love for Small Coffee Shops

November 25, 2019

For many people, liquid bean water is the best way to start the day. Some prefer a nice, warm cup of ‘Joe’ while others enjoy the cold sips of happiness that iced coffee and cold brew offer. Then there are also people that prefer the sugary nonsense that are frappuccinos. Three coffee shops will be rated on aesthetic, taste and overall experience. Price points and practicality will also be considered.




Grounds for Celebration

Iced Almond Milk Latte from Grounds From Celebration.



Grounds for Celebration is a local coffee shop chain with locations in Beaverdale and Windsor Heights. This small, welcoming coffee shop is great for people who want to drink their coffee in peace or with a friend. Each location has a fireplace and a few armchairs, along with other seating and tables. The staff is very friendly and willing to help. however the overall aesthetic of Grounds for Celebrations is dated, the atmosphere and decor appeals to older consumers more than young ones. Their small coffee bean farm in Panama, brings some of the best coffee flavors in the Des Moines Metro. This coffee shop is for those who like more bitter coffee and for those non-coffee drinkers they have other beverages such as tea and Italian sodas. The price point of this coffee shop is reasonable. It is not as expensive as beverages ranging in the three to seven dollar range. Despite many good aspects practicality is low on a scale of one to ten Their two locations are out of the way for most students, many people would not see it fit to drive to Windsor Heights or Beaverdale just for coffee or other beverages.
