Valparaiso, Ind.-based Family Express boasts a Java Wave coffee bar made with slow-roasted, small-batch Arabica beans. This summer, the c-store introduced Java Wave Cold Brew Coffee, steeped in filtered water for 20 hours. Helping to competitively undercut rivals such as Starbucks, its European Cafe touchscreen machines offer guests nine made-to-order espresso drinks of all sizes for $1.69. Several survey respondents also point to the stores’ other fresh offerings as an additional draw for coffee consumers. “I am a regular at Family Express, and I always have a great experience,” said a recent guest. “I have never had a bad one, ever. The food and coffee [are] always fresh, and they keep the store stocked and are never out of anything.”
