The 3rd floor of West Village by the Starbucks.  The low murmur of students' voices as they study and socialize and music played by Starbucks. Sharp sound of chair being pulled out followed by an opening and closing door as a student leaves. Recoded on IPhone 6 microphone.

This is a sound recording of someone sitting down, preparing to study on the third floor of West Village Dining near the Starbucks, on a Saturday at 11:00 am. Recorded with an iPhone 6. The sound of the chair screeching across the floor along with the person making contact with the chair is heard, as that is the main focus of the audio. In the background there are faint sounds of the music from the Starbucks as well the person making contact with the table, by placing items on it and adjusting the chair.

The recording shows the normal everyday chatter and background noise that occurs at a public coffee shop. You can hear the chatter of people and sounds that the blenders make to prepare the drinks.

This sound recording starts with a carton of organic soymilk being poured into a metal pitcher. The pitcher is then placed under the steaming wand attached to a Mastrena High Performance Espresso Machine. The steaming wand touches the bottom of the pitcher that contains the milk and is then pulled down to reach just the top of the milk where we hear the liquid ripping noise to create the delightful foam on top of a latte. The last noise that fades out is the steaming wand being cleaned by letting out steam into a sanitized cloth. Recorded in Starbucks on an IPhone 6S.

This recording is of the sound of four Splenda sugar packets being poured into a half-empty, half-full cup of Einstein's Bagels coffee at the Starbucks located in VCU's Cabell Library.  Much sugar is needed because the coffee is incredibly bitter.
