Unlike other cafes, Chloe’s doesn’t do the latte thing. “We’re strictly drip coffee,” she said. “This is what we do. It’s our drip coffee. If you want a latte, go to Starbucks.” Young said bluntly, adding that espresso-based drinks were never something she wanted to do, let alone something Chloe’s has the space for.
Young has thought about raising the price to a dollar, something she’s already done for the iced coffee. (Believe it or not, some people actually get mad about the low price wishing Young would charge more and just give free refills.) However, she explained, “In a weird way, even though it’s 50 cents, [people] will give a dollar and 50 cents goes in the tip jar. It [also] really does help the tips a lot to keep it at 50 cents.”
