Guam Coffee Shop Round Up!

When I arrived on Guam one of my first priorities was finding and trying all the coffee because I am a coffee addict and visiting coffee shops has always been one of the small joys in my life. So here I have for you Guam’s coffee shops, their most popular menu items, and what makes each one special! In alphabetical order …

Most popular coffee:

  • Asiga [sea salt caramel latte]

  • Vegan Ice Creams made from coconut + cashews – popular flavors are pollen in love [chamomile and local honey] and awwsam strawberry [black tea and strawberry jam]
  • Sorbet when in season [dragon fruit, mango and avocado]

Special because: the menu is curated based on seasonal flavors and locally available ingredients so everything is as fresh and local as possible! I tried the Asiga coffee [half sweet with almond milk] and it was perfect. I also tried the pollen in love with chamomile and local honey and it really hit the spot.
