Coffee Shops in Columbia Missouri

Coffee Shops that are worth making your destination.

Coffee shops like The Coffee Zone are difficult to come by.  The right ambiance, music, lighting, food and of course coffee… what would coffee shops be without great coffee?

Coffee Shops Columbia Missouri When looking at the history of coffee shops it is likely that many might believe The Coffee Zone in Columbia, MO was destined for longevity.

Coffee Shops in Columbia Missouri

According to an entry on “A coffeehouse or coffee shop is an establishment which primarily serves prepared coffee or other hot beverages.”

It is believed that the first coffeehouse in Istanbul was started around the year 962 which soon spread throughout the Middle East.  Thankfully, the Middle East brought their coffee shops to the United States for us to enjoy them.

The Coffee Zone is obviously birthed from the absolute origins of coffee shops as seen in this spectacular coffee shop design.  The photos on the wall, the rugs, even the lighting allow visitors a taste of the Middle East. Rarely do you see coffee shops interiors this nice and inviting which is obvious if you look at pictures of coffee shops around the country.

In most coffee shops the  menus showcase specialty coffees and assorted flavors just like the Coffee Zone, but what these other coffee shops fail to do is bring food as good as you can find in The Coffee Zone.  Experience this for yourself in downtown Columbia, MO.

Among all of the coffee shops near me, I find that The Coffee Zone has just about everything I am looking for.  Great food, atmosphere, personalities from an amazing staff, true Mediterranean art and decor and of course the absolute best coffee around. Coffee shops with this much personality are hard to say no to.

Whether you live in Columbia, MO or are just visiting, many locals will tell you a “must” destination is The Coffee Zone which has been a tradition since 1994. Coffee shops may not always be on your radar, but the Coffee Zone is so much more than most coffee shops.

Hours of operation are Monday through Saturday 6:30 AM – 9:00 PM and Sunday 8:00 AM – 9:00 PM and one of the only coffee shops in Columbia to be open most holidays.

        As someone cunerrtly in an Education graduate program, I can say from experience that the leftist agenda is quite obvious throughout the faculty. Most of the faculty are leftists, but they vary from not making it obvious to spending entire courses repeating leftist talking points.Ironically, the ones who spend entire courses attempting to indoctrinate students often get the best teaching evaluations, but not for the reasons they think. They get the best teaching evaluations simply because they expect the least out of their students. I had one professor that fit this mold, and I received an ‘A’ in the class just by showing up despite the fact that I quit doing any work for the class about half-way through when I realized it wasn’t necessary.Anyway, I don’t worry too much about actual teachers being indoctrinated because it’s been my experience that most of them don’t really care about the “philosophy of education” stuff (which is often just leftist tripe disguised as educational philosophy). They (admirably) just want to get into the class and teach. What’s more troubling is the time that this stuff wastes. Teachers could be off learning skills and content that could be useful in teaching, but instead they sit through classes where the professors spend the entire time discussing (and complaining about) current political issues. Also, the focus on diversity is almost comical here, considering that the vast majority of students are white women. If they wanted diversity, they should try to recruit men, but I’m guessing that that is not quite the kind of diversity they have in mind.
