“There are a lot of coffee options in Columbia but Azalea is my favorite. The baristas are knowledgeable and warm. You can’t feel out of place here. Become a regular and they’ll remember your name, your order, and your dog’s name. The environment is cozy and cared for. Importantly, their drinks are consistently good. You can tell these folks are trained and really care about their craft!!! The drinks are never too watery, burnt tasting or weak. After going to another popular coffee establishment in Columbia that told me their go-to for an iced latte is COLD BREW instead of espresso… I never want to venture out anymore. I love you, Azalea. ?“
