https://i.ytimg.com/vi/TpdFVSi7PZ8/maxresdefault.jpg Finding a good place to study can get frustrating, but if you enjoy doing your studying in a coffee shop, Sara Cravatts lists ten different coffee shops for you to try out. Cravatts, a student at Emory University, lets us know that there are other great study spots in Atlanta other than Starbucks. Most of the places she names are right on Emory’s campus, while the rest conveniently close. The Dancing Goats Café seems to be one of the more popular spots on their campus. An interesting place mentioned is Cafe Intermermezo, where you can get some coffee and some cake! ☕️ + = Places such as Aurora Coffee and Java Loras are both placed in Little Five Points. ChocoLate Coffee is another café located pretty close to Emory’s campus, being that it’s only minutes away from those who reside in Gables Montclair and Highland Lake. JavaVino is another location that is mentioned. Not only can you order your favorite cappuccino, but if you’re 21 and older, you can get yourself a Pinot Grigio, or whatever wine you have a taste for. Sounds like study heaven to...

Built Environment Description

Chattahoochee Coffee Company Here is a sign that is posted at every entrance of the Coffee Shop. It sets the tone of who and what is allowed on the premises. Although you may sit shirtless or in a bikini on the river, you can not enter into the shop without following the proper dress code. It is open to public, as long as you abide by their standards. Although there are two locations to the Chattahoochee Coffee Company, this one lies inside an apartment community, so because it us open to the public, it would only make sense to make the environment advertising to bring in more residents. Pictured here is the order counter, menu and a a apartment guide board advertising the area. As you can see the coffee shop leads to the leasing office. The environment was very welcoming here, tThere was even music that gave off a getaway vibe. I heard one lady describe it as a “coffee retreat” lol  As you can see, I decided to take a sit in, after being welcomed in by the smell of sweet mocha I decided to enjoy a peach apricot pear smoothie. By the way, it was incredibly smooth and delicious. I know, I know, its a coffee company, why not enjoy some coffee. But this day in particular was sort of warm, and the smoothie menu was quite irresistible. Pictured here are the three restrooms accessible to the public. I particularly wanted to see what kind of restrooms that they would have available. This is something that I very rarely pay attention to at all. I did...

Octane Coffee and Bar: Not Your Average Cup of Coffee.

My Experience at Octane Coffee and Bar  Memorable. Aromatic. Welcoming. When a person mentions the word coffee, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Is it a location like Starbucks? Perhaps the smell or bitter taste consumes your thoughts? Either way, it is likely that the word “Octane” does not cross through your mind. These are some of the thoughts that crossed through my mind as I was driving to Octane Coffee and Bar, which is located in Grant Park. When I arrived, I was gladly greeted by a spacious parking lot that did not require you to pay; something usually absent in the city of Atlanta. After parking my car in one of the designated locations, I walked around the building to observe the design and look for potential entrances. I found that the only entrance to the building is in the front which consisted of three handicap parking spots, stairs, and a ramp making the building easily accessible for those who are handicap. The combination of red bricks and dirty white metal siding gives off a rustic feeling. Once I had finished observing the outside of the building, I walked up the steps and opened the entrance. Immediately my olfactory senses were assaulted by the bitter smells of coffee, the harsh smell of liquor, and the sweet smells of the neighboring bakery. The second thing that surprised me was the sheer amount of people present inside of Octane, specifically students. Everywhere I turned inside of the shop, there were students typing away in the glow of their laptops, surrounded in papers and empty glasses of coffee.The coffee shop was buzzing with...

The Experience: Octane Coffee and Bar (5)

Naturally, in order to fully immerse myself into Octane Coffee and Bar, I had to order a drink and see what it was like. The drink you see here was recommended to me and is called the Nitro cold brew. The brown sugar packets are not there for decoration, but as a way to express the mentality of Octane. Much like how the brown sugar is “raw”, simple, rugged and natural, the coffee shop is the...

Let the light shine: Octane Coffee and Bar (2)

This is what Octane is known for. Students make up the majority of the customers and assemble here to study and with good reason. Notice the amount of light that enters inside of the building. This is because the entire building is surrounded in glass, letting in light and making everything much more inviting. The interior is a blend of nature and modern styling. Wood makes up the tables and the stools along the walls, while the chairs are metal....

Octane Coffee and Bar Exterior (1)

This is the exterior of Octane Coffee and Bar. The first thing I noticed was the rustic/modern design of the building. While it may look like its literally rusting away, the style and appearance gives the building character. Also, parking is easily available as well as parking and ramps for those who are handicapped, making this building easily accessible for all. There is also an exterior patio like area which allows customers to sit outside if they choose...
