“We have an espresso vending machine at Nissan that serves our customers and employees provided by Marianas Coffee. It serves black, light cream, cappuccino, café latte, café mocha and French vanilla in your choice of regular or decaffeinated.
My morning ritual is to add a couple of ounces of black decaf to the bottom of my stainless steel Nissan insulated mug. I then add one cup of decaf café mocha and another cup of decaf café latte.
I’ll sip this for about an hour ‘til it starts to cool a little and then I’ll add about a half a cup of hot decaf black and then I’m good for the morning. It’s the best 75¢ coffee on Guam.
I’m pretty simple and quite boring actually, but my special occasion splurge beverage of choice is a nice, smooth glass of Acacia’s Pinot Noir.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find it here, so the Guam choice would be a Sterling Merlot Vintner’s Collection.”

“On the daily, I begin with an Infusion fixer upper — freshly squeezed carrot and apple juice. This beverage can only be ordered in store and not by the drive through. That moment of the first sip I can immediately feel it rejuvenating my body and energy level. I highly recommend it for anyone who’s had a long night, anticipating a long day or just feeling under the weather — this Infusion beverage is worth getting or buying for someone in need.
Another place I tend to fancy quite often after 3 p.m. would be the nearby Circle K convenience store. They have a great variety of fresh-brewed coffee. I can never just pour a straight cup of one kind, and I love making my own awesome coffee concoctions. I’ve become quite good at it and enjoy the selection of flavors.
As far as splurging for a special occasion, honestly every day is reason enough to consider special, and between Infusion and Circle K, I am one happy girl who continues to enjoy my drinks.”

“I’m a simple guy. My beverage every day is Mr. Brown Coffee because the sugar gets me going in the morning. Usually I get it from a gas station if I don’t get a full case from the supermarket.
I don’t really have anything special [that I splurge on], but does F’real Chocolate Milkshake count? That’s the one I share with my daughter.”

“I love Mr. Brown Iced Coffee and usually purchase it from Pay-Less Supermarkets. [On special occasions] I love an exceptionally good cabernet sauvignon for every special occasion.”

“Coconut water daily from any corner mart. My splurge beverage is coconut milk because you can’t drink that every day without putting on weight.”
