Coffee shops- the college student’s best friend. You go in, buy a latte, sit down with your laptop, and crack down on assignments and studying. Albuquerque does an amazing job at providing us the coffee shops we need, and they are also aesthetically appealing. Some people don’t know about these shops, despite their wonderfully cliché […]
