One look at the deciduous trees on your block will let you know loud and clear that fall is coming, if not already here. With the arrival of autumn comes the dreaded (or beloved, depending on who you are and what you’re all about) return to the classroom. The start of the school year is a special time, stay-at-home moms rejoice, public school students grimace, and college students start questioning their life plans. For every person affected by back-to-school and its accompanying dread/joy/malaise, this list is for you.
The coffee shop has long been the rendezvous of choice for the studious individual. The hygienic silence of a school library isn’t always the best environment for deep concentration — sometimes a little ambient noise is grounding and conducive to long periods of heavy focus.
You know what else is conducive to focus? Coffee, lots of strong, smooth, wit-sharpening coffee. Try these three coffee concoctions next time your face has a long date with a textbook and a highlighter.
Crouching Tiger — This commanding chocolate caramel milkshake dotted with crushed espresso beans will keep you as adroit as an actual tiger.
Peppermint Patty — A classic peppermint mocha with rich cocoa and espresso gets a refreshingly brisk snap from a shot of peppermint syrup. Just what you need to stay caffeinated and alert, but also mildly refreshed.
Triple Shot Americano — Your hair might start to vibrate, but that’s a small price to pay for laser focus and a successful study session.
