  As of recently, a new drive-thru has been introduced to the West side of town. Although there is another location of the same coffee franchise on the other side of town, it wasn’t a very popular spot. 7 Brew is a drive-thru-only coffee shop with a wide selection of drinks for everyone. They offer several different flavors and strengths of coffee, a wide variety of their own branded energy drinks, hot cocoa, smoothies, and even tea. 

  Upon driving up to the door, being greeted with a smile and an upbeat attitude is not an uncommon occurrence at 7 Brew. All employees are in a good mood, patient and willing to help you find the perfect drink for your caffeine needs. The first drink we tasted was the Iced Vanilla Blondie. The Blondie was sweet and did its part in giving me energy. The aftertaste was slightly funky and questionable. The next drink we tasted was one of their special energy drinks. The blue raspberry “midnight rain” drink was sweet, but not overpowering. It was a struggle to choose an energy drink because their menu is targeted towards coffee over everything else, and the energy drink flavors aren’t shown on the menu.

  Overall, 7 Brew is a better coffee drive-thru destination than Starbucks. 7 Brew is also a cheaper alternative to other coffee shops while maintaining quality coffee. If you are looking for a place with unique drinks and a positive environment, with employees who care, 7 Brew is the place you want to go.
