As most of our TO students know, Five07 is one of the most popular (and debatably delicious) coffee places in town. But which coffee drink reigns superior? To answer this question, I took a trip over there and tried their three most popular drinks: the Iced Vanilla Latte with oat milk, Cinnamon Iced Chai, and the Iced Lavender Latte. All the drinks came in adorable glass mason jars, and the turnaround time was additionally so quick and efficient. 

Amber McCarthy, the owner, recommended these drinks. She stated that they are the most commonly ordered and that I should give them a try. I started with the Lavender Latte, which had rich espresso, milk and a subtle hint of lavender to make the flavors blend easily. It definitely is a great drink for when you’re feeling a bit adventurous and want to try something new.

The second drink I tried was my personal favorite; the Cinnamon Iced Chai. Chai has always been my go-to drink no matter the establishment, but I definitely believe Five07 has the best one. I’ve never had a chai so nicely made before. The drink was perfectly creamy, sweet, and had just the right amount of spice from the cinnamon. If you aren’t much of a coffee drinker but want a really tasty and sweet drink, the Cinnamon Iced Chai is perfect. 

Last but not least, I tried the Iced Vanilla Latte with oat milk. You can choose whichever milk you like, whether it’s oat, almond, whole, etc. 

“My personal favorite out of those would be the vanilla latte, just because I love our house espresso,” senior and Five07 employee Kiara Benioff said.

The Iced Vanilla Latte is the perfect drink for when you want something not too extravagant, but yummy enough to satisfy your coffee cravings. You definitely can’t go wrong with this one. Personally the oat milk added a nice touch of flavor, and it mixed nicely with the espresso and vanilla flavoring. Other types of milk can also be added to the drink, such as almond or whole milk. 

All of these drinks can come iced or hot, and if you are in a rush, you can order online ahead of time by using curbside pickup or the Joe. Coffee app. By using Joe. Coffee you can also earn points with each drink you buy. 

So, to answer the question of which drink reigns superior, I’d say they all are equally as delicious. My personal favorite, however, would definitely be the cinnamon chai. But you can’t go wrong with any of these drinks, and I recommend going to Five07 on your next coffee run to experience them for yourself.
