Spring break is drawing to an end… but I guess I’m not THAT bummed out since my dad will be visiting this coming week! Anyway, I invited two of my good friends to a coffee adventure in the west village. I’m always down for a good few hours of chatting over coffee, and Prodigy Coffee was the perfect spot for it.
The café itself is fairly small, but has a warm, clean atmosphere. I especially liked the chandeliers. It was pretty crowded inside, but the staff was nice about taking all the orders. The three of us were lucky to find a good table and settle down!
This was my skim milk cappuccino. A cappuccino is my go-to drink for a caffeine boost because I find that black coffee can sometimes be too powerful of a diuretic to manage during and between classes. I LOVED the cappuccino at Prodigy! The coffee was fragrant and soft, and didn’t leave a dry taste in my mouth.
My friends got the café mocha and an iced latte. The mocha tasted more chocolate than coffee…almost like a cup of hot chocolate with the faintest smell of coffee. The latte on the other hand, was pretty refreshing; it had been a long time since I’d tasted a plain latte with no sugar or syrup… I guess I had been too accustomed to the vanilla lattes at Starbucks! I liked that the latte didn’t leave a sticky aftertaste.
Every time I stay inside a café for a cup of coffee, I feel so motivated to learn latte art. Currently it’s on my to-do list for the summer. What are on y’all’s summer bucket lists? (or…is it too early for that?!)
