Spring break is quickly approaching for many college students, and tourists have already started flocking to Mission Beach. Since such a large percentage of college students are also avid coffee drinkers, a new coffee spot has arrived just in time for the seasonal rush.
Better Buzz Coffee Shop has locations all over Southern California, but its most recent addition to Mission Boulevard, The Lab, has attracted a great deal of attention.
Opening its doors on January 27, 2013, Better Buzz has not received the regular traffic of already established coffee shops such as Newbreak or Café 1134, but its friendly service and chill atmosphere is sure to attract its deserved following by the time summertime tourists catch wind of its existence.
Friendly service makes this coffee shop stand out from the rest. The baristas are both helpful and knowledgeable about their craft, and will helpfully offer suggestions to their customers without giving the impression of being a salesman. Their variety of syrups and roasts provide a plethora of options for regulars to try.
What truly sets this coffee shop apart, however, is its open-door policy on their products. Any barista could tell a customer where their coffee came from, that it was fair trade, and that the beans are organic. If customers are still searching for more information about their coffees, the website is extremely helpful in educating consumers about the nature of their business and trading methods.
A coffee shop that doesn’t just sell good coffee but actually stands for something worthwhile makes Better Buzz a necessary stop for spring breakers, tourists, and locals of San Diego.
