5 Of The Best Coffee Shops In Louisville, Kentucky
Shelby Arnett

Over the past few years, my love for iced coffee has increasingly grown. I would now call myself a coffee fanatic, but I embrace the name with pride due to the belief that each cup of coffee you have should taste like the best one yet. Though Starbucks is always a reliant coffee franchise to visit, I have expanded my coffee shop experiences since the moment I could drive. Each coffee shop I've stepped into has carried its own unique atmosphere, as well as incredible coffee to go along with it. I even carve time out of my daily schedule just to get a daily dose of lattes in my system. It makes me feel good and ready to take on the day, but even more so, it tastes even better. If you've found yourself stuck on where to find some of the best coffee in Louisville, Kentucky, you've come to the right spot.

Safai Coffee

Shelby Arnett

Safai, located on Bardstown Road in the Highlands, is as well known for its coffee as its crepes. The perfect mix of sweet and savory, Safai offers a plethora of local coffee and espresso drinks, as well as soda drinks, such as Purple Rain. Safai is by far my favorite coffee shop in Louisville, and they even have a "pet" squirrel that they feed right outside the window!

Please & Thank You

Shelby Arnett

Please & Thank You is not only a local coffee shop, but it also serves as a bakery with its warm -- and lightly salted -- chocolate chip cookies. All of the Please & Thank You locations are well known for is old-fashioned juke boxes or turntables that play a range of tunes to fit your liking.

Heine Brothers' Coffee

Shelby Arnett

I wish I had started drinking Heine Brothers' coffee much earlier than I did, because their organic and fair trade coffee is to die for! The coffee shop is a Louisville original, and they offer both paper and plastic straws (save the sea turtles!) to accommodate all of their customers and promote a healthy environment. Heine Brothers' is well known for its dedication to fair trade and treating others with dignity and respect, making for an overall positive atmosphere.

Sunergos Coffee

Shelby Arnett

I just recently tried an iced latte from Sunergos, and I was thoroughly fulfilled with the mix of sweetness and coffee. There are multiple locations throughout the Louisville area, each one varying in its structure and seating arrangements. Their original location on Preston Street even keeps up with its training lab where baristas receive their training!

Quills Coffee

Shelby Arnett

Quills serves freshly brewed coffee on a weekly basis and even ships bags of coffee to your home! Coffee enthusiasts from Louisville and Indianapolis, and even people across the country, enjoy the goodness of Quills coffee and espresso.

My discovery of these coffee shops in Louisville has exposed me to a range of different areas that I have never seen before. I find myself making the trip across town just for an iced vanilla latte. Each of the coffee shops listed above has a specific mission, and that is to serve its customers well while roasting the best coffee possible. Whether you love coffee or despise it, I highly suggest you check these places just for the experience, or even if you're craving a sweet treat (like a crepe or chocolate cookie!). You may surprise yourself in your discovery. Enjoy the coffee journey!

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

Online classes and virtual reality in general have been the staple of 2020. One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.

16707

Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
