My favorite on-the-way-to-work coffee place is under new ownership.
There is a big sign by the counter that proudly states the owners are new, but the baristas and the coffee are the same. They lie!
I’ve been stopping there on my way to work 2-3 times a week since we moved here a few years ago, and I don’t recognize a single face. For the first time in over a year I have to actually explain how I want my coffee drink, and they don’t even offer breakfast sandwiches. Also, the coffee they serve tastes awful. In fact, it’s disgusting.
Before the switch, when Moxie Java ran the place, it was packed in the mornings. Since they changed to the Local Franchise, it’s not. There was one other person there this morning. One! And they are slooooow. I have to be at work by 9:00 AM… before, if I left home by 8:35, i had time to stop for coffee, with time to spare. Now, if I leave by 8:35, I barely make it to work on time.
This particular local franchise sucks donkey balls and I hope they go out of business. They ruined my morning coffee place!
