Just like the saying “Never Underestimate the Importance of Being Properly Caffeinated.” There are a lot of expectations for an ideal coffee shop. A café is not only about its coffee, but also how its service and environment makes you feel when grabbing a cup of coffee on a busy day or sipping on an espresso during a relaxing coffee break.
