“iPad ordering might just be standard for shops now. Rockford does call out drinks loudly, which is super helpful.”

“If they’re busy and there’s only one barista, sometimes it can be a little bit until you get help. Whether you’re acknowledged while waiting is pretty variable.”

“This coffee shopped is blessed with a panini menu. Whether you’re looking for lunch or you started studying early enough to need some midday sustenance, most coffee shops don’t provide something quite so delicious.”

-Hanna

“Maybe people think I don’t like latte art. Nothing fancy again for me today.”

Pleasurable – Coffee Cup 5

“A little known secret of Rockford Coffee is that they often have donuts from New Day bakery in Belgrade in the early morning – fresh. You might want to test them out and see if they compare to the other local favorite, Granny’s. Artisan coffee makes a nice complement for an early morning indulgence.”

It was a sunny Friday afternoon: Caleb, Liz, and Hanna went to the Daily right off campus. There are two impressions when you enter: One, it is much darker in here than outside, and two, there is a beautiful case of baked goods and desserts directly in front of you and you want one.

-Hanna

“The ordering board is simply a large chalk board hung above the counter. This is not the most effective way of displaying a menu but it does get the drink options out to the customer.”

-Hanna

Smart – Coffee Cup 2

“A lot of similar drinks are popular here… I’m surprised no one accidentally grabs the wrong drink. Why don’t they write names on them?”

-Liz

Responsive – Coffee Cup 2

“Sometimes the baristas here don’t make waiting in line a pleasant interaction…they’re pulling shots and busily making drinks and customers can feel ignored until there’s a full change of task to take their order.”

-Liz

Clever – Coffee Cup 3

“After placing your order you can use the iPad to sign and leave a tip (if using a credit/debit card). The iPad automatically offers tips of $.50, $1.00, $2.00 or the option to create your own, very handy so you don’t have to think about percents.”

-Caleb

Ludic – Coffee Cup 3

“It’s kind of an average coffee shop located close to campus… I noticed there was a chess board some people were playing with but I don’t know where they got it from.”

-Hanna

Pleasurable – Coffee Cup 2

“I don’t know if I was pleasantly surprised by anything in here. It’s a cool place with good music close to campus, but not exactly above and beyond.”
