Have you ever had a mid-day slump? Where you don’t want to make anything to drink or eat but you need that boost of energy? That’s where Java Junkie Espresso comes in!


Java is open from 6:30 am to 5 pm on weekdays but on weekends they are open until 7 am to 5 pm. Java is one of the most popular coffee shops in Oroville Washington, mainly with the students of Oroville High School. Some Oroville students even work there. My friend, Lauren Rawley says that “it is nice working there because I get to work with my sister, but it can sometimes be hectic.” Since Java is so popular it can get very busy.


Usually around lunchtime is when it gets busy but it really just depends on the day. Java Junkie Espresso is located at 2308 Highway 97, by Napa Auto Parts and Princes. The newest thing on Java’s menu is their lotus special, a pomegranate huckleberry purple lotus with edible glitter. This drink is not only good-looking but also good tasting too.


As someone who goes to java quite often, my two favorite drinks on their menu are a chai tea with almond milk and madagascar coldfoam; also a London fog. Personally, I had no idea what a London fog was until I tried it. A London fog consists of Earl gray tea, milk of your choice and pumps of vanilla (you could also do lavender but vanilla is more flavorful). Another very popular drink at Java is their red bulls.


While Java has good drinks, they also have really great food. While they have a bunch of different options to choose from, the most popular food on their menu is the bagels and sandwiches. The bagels are not only toasted to perfection, they also have really unique and good tasting flavors. My favorite bagel would probably be the bacon cheddar bagel, with cream cheese. They also hand-craft their sandwiches, so you know it’s going to be good. If you want to check out more stuff at Java Junkie, like their merch, follow Java Junkie Espresso on Facebook!
