COLUMBUS, Miss. – (WCBI) Brent Davidson wanted to bring something unique and energetic to the Golden Triangle.

That’s exactly what he did, when he opened the Coffee House on Fifth in downtown Columbus. From french pressed house brews, to beverages that all feature, not one, but two shots of espresso. Its Brent’s fresh ground approach that has Columbus residents coming back for another cup.

I joined Brent at his shop to be a barista for a day, where I was assigned to the coffee press.

We began the mocha making experience with one pump of chocolate syrup. Then, we used whole milk and steam to create a foamy mixture. Then, a measured amount of packed coffee was locked into the espresso machine where two shots were brewed. Add all three together, and a mocha you make.

I think I’ll stick to drinking a cup or three everyday.. For Brent Davidson of Coffee House on Fifth, brewing up some caffeinated creations is just one more day in the life.
