Stop: Columbus, GA
Shop: Midtown Coffee House
Beverage: Zebra Mocha
Hey, guys! Happy Thursday and yet another awakening from yours truely accompanied by an attempt to keep this site alive in the midst of having NO time for anything ever for the moment! For today’s post, I visited Midtown Coffeehouse in my little town of Columbus! I do plan to branch out again once time permits- I can’t wait to be able to resume my initial post schedule. For now, I’m probably going to change my post schedule temporarily to Thursdays, and resume Monday posting once I have time to do so…
Plans aside! I was finally able to go see what they have as far as that new new, because sometimes I go in and they have something so unique on their blackboard, like the wedding cake latte from ages ago, that I can’t find the post for. This day they were still repping for the Lemonade, and while that was DELICIOUS I’m not using my day off for drinking something I’ve already tried. I hate being a pain for these lovely people who enable my addiction, because I love their work, but I asked for something new. I kind of ran over flavors I enjoy and what I’ve tried from there, all the while casting glances at the sweet couple chatting behind me debating on apologizing outright for taking (what I felt) was so much time.
In the end, the Zebra Mocha was pitched, a mixture of dark mocha and white. I’ve probably had something like it before, because it is mocha. But I haven’t had it from them specifically, I went with that. And after paying, I apologized for taking up so much to the couple behind me, turns out I didn’t need to worry because they were just as lost as I had been. I told them the lemonade was kicking and took a seat to wait.
Once it was brought out to me, I took the first sip. Anyone who goes without anything for any amount of time, and then gets what they’ve been deprived of, knows how sweet it is. The espresso was mild, as is their custom. It’s not overly earthy, like my Jamaican Blue Mountain, but has just a little bit of presence in the taste. The primary flavor is a tossup between the two mochas. I’m moved to say that the white mocha is slightly more prevalent. The darker trails behind and leaving a lovely richness on your tongue.

Visited my old friends at @midtowncoffeehouse and tried a zebra latte! I was looking for something I hadn’t tried (and loved!) And they delivered!

Onto the rating!
Due to the somewhat noticeable taste of the espresso itself, I wouldn’t recommend this for those who loathe a bit of earthiness in their coffee. But if you can make it through a nice soft earthiness and like chocolate this is for you!
