Favorite Places on Guam: Infusion Coffee in Upper Tumon

Ask me what I miss about the States, and I’ll tell you I miss road trips and Starbucks.

I miss being able to drive a few hours north to the Appalachian mountains, and knowing that most of my family and friends are on the same land mass.

I miss the white chocolate peppermint mochas and caramel apple spices from Starbucks that fed several winters of late-night study sessions in college.

I’m a freelance writer, and I’m learning that if I want to get anything done, home is not the place to do it. The coffee shop is. Something about a warm, creamy latte and coffee shop sounds makes for better motivation than anything I could drum up at home.

Home is for curling up on the sofa and reading books. The coffee shop is for hitting the books with purpose.

Infusion is my Guam sanctuary for doing just that. The location in Upper Tumon is my favorite–complete with a view of the ocean, friendly staff, decent wi-fi, and lots of seating that lends itself well to hiding behind a laptop. The atmosphere is relaxing, even if the music isn’t always.

The best part? The baristas even know how to spell my name. This is something my own grandmother gets wrong on a semi-regular basis.

I am one very happy coffee drinker. Now, to find Guam’s equivalent to a road trip…

  1. Very true. It hit on the spot the things we miss while living on Guam and things we realize not to take for granted. It’s mixed feelings of loving Guam yet wanting the things we miss. So glad you found the perfect coffee shop for you!
