Coffeehouse Feels – Mixed Tape No.1 by Shay

What makes a coffee shop so special? The coffee? The people? The aesthetic? Perhaps it’s the music? While there are many things that add to its charm, a coffee shop is not without the right playlist.

How do I define coffeehouse music? Chill. Not too calm as to put you to sleep and easy enough on the ears to keep concentration on your work. It has always been a favorite genre of mine. Really, it’s how I survived college!

And with that, I introduce the first Coffee With Shay mixed tape, an hour or so of coffeehouse feels! A few of my favorites while I’m enjoying a nice cup of coffee.

Disclaimer: It was incredibly challenging to narrow this list down to one hour of music! But, there’s only so much tinkering one can do to the lineup.
