Anyone that knows me will tell you that I LOVE Starbucks - it's not even about the coffee....really. The coffee is good but its the experience and the ascetic of the place that I really love. The chipper mood in the place is infectious and I love it!...oh yeah and the lemon pound cake...what what!...totally love it.
So...since moving to Germany the closest SB that I have found is the kiosk-ish one in the airport in Frankfurt and the staff...well less than chipper. Especially the French guy that works there, I think he thinks that making coffee is so last season. He never smiles. To console myself that so far I have had to drive 2 1/2 hours to Koln to get my quintessential SB experience that I love so dearly I'm super excited about the new Starbucks sizes! Check it out HERE on their website. I think I'm definitely going for the "Plenta" so my experience can last and last....
btw....HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY! Oh yeah that bit about the French guy in Frankfurt...totally real.
