I thought it’d be fitting to post my last post from Santa Cruz today given it was the last day of the summer program. So I’ve been to Verve a grand total of two times. These pictures are a combination of those two times. The first time was before going into the lab, and the second time was today, with my friends. My first time, I got an iced latte, a chocolate chip cookie, a scone, and my mom got a hot latte. I was so surprised by how smooth the coffee was. It didn’t leave a bitter taste in my mouth, but it also wasn’t very creamy or anything. I really enjoyed the clean taste it had to it. It also paired really well with the chocolate chip cookie, which was super sweet, but very delicious. It was chunky, crunchy, and soft in all the right places. The scone was also very good, but I didn’t realize there was bacon in there until it was too late, and I had already eaten half of it and broken my vegetarian diet on accident. My mom’s latte was also pretty good, but I liked my iced one more. The second time, today, I got an iced latte and cookie again, which was just as good as I had remembered. They are opening a location in downtown Palo Alto soon, and I sure hope that it’s as good as the downtown Santa Cruz one. Overall, verve was one of the first places, besides Philz, that sprouted my not yet love, but liking for coffee.
Overall, 24/30 or 80%
