Coffee fuels our campus. It gets us through that 8 a.m. course, sustains us through midterms and finals, and brings us together to drink and talk between classes. It’s also the focus of a series the Daily Bruin will launch next week.Our Arts & Entertainment section will explore trends in coffee consumption, life as a student barista and alternative energy drinks. Multimedia departments will talk to coffeehouse frequenters and map the locations of some of our favorite brews. Coffee is a personal beverage. There are important matters of alliance: Peet’s or Starbucks, sweet or bitter. There are the issues of size, milk quantity and caffeine content. A good or bad cup of coffee can make or break a day.
As an editorial board, we’re looking to find out what students think about this everyday issue. We want to know about what students think about the Associated Students UCLA coffee spots: Kerckhoff Coffeehouse, Café 451, Jimmy’s, Northern Lights, Bruin Buzz, Café Synapse and Untitled.
Here are some of the questions we’d like to hear your feedback on:
1. How often do you drink coffee? How often do you purchase coffee on campus?
2. How would you rate the taste of coffee at ASUCLA-owned shops on campus, from very bad to very good?
