BUSINESS: Clash of the Coffees

‘Frozen Joe’ and ‘Flip Switch’ work their way into reporter’s heart

(Continued)

JACKSONVILLE —

 

JACKSONVILLE JOE'S

The frozen treat "Frozen Joe" comes in two sizes, 16 ounces costing $3.79 with tax and 24 ounces, costing $4.60 with tax. The drink contains coffee, ice, smoothie powder and whichever flavoring is preferred.

This amazing concoction is a winner because it is sweet, tasty and addictive. Indeed, the "Frozen Joe" slides across the palate like a ice cold chocolate malt on a hot summer's day — but with a undeniable "OOMPH!"

Seriously, you'll find yourself drinking yourself into a brain freeze. with the Frozen Joe. It breaks down to three words: DEE. LIGHT. FULL.

And actually, residents would be hard pressed to find someone more caffeine-talented and generally friendly than  Jacksonville Joe's owner Larry Frisinger. This man puts an insane amount of love and care into his work. He's even from Seattle, the coffee Mecca of the universe.

He and his wife Charla came to town a few years back and quickly decided to provide Jacksonville with a superior cup of Joe, which led to the opening of this coffee stand.

Larry Frisinger makes his own chocolate, he gets up at Dark O'Clock to brew espresso for an entire day, and he provides a “to go” service that really can't be beat.

In the eyes of many coal residents his is the very definitive place to secure morning caffeine. The only coffee “drive thru” business in town, his store offers various types of coffee, smoothies, and yummy sweat treats with prices in the “under $10 range.” The store is open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

CAFFEINE RATING: FOUR OUT OF FOUR STARS. EXTREME CAFFEINE COMBINED WITH CLEVER RECIPEES. OVERALL, AN EXCELLENT VENUE FOR COMMUTERS ON THE GO.
