Back to the topic of 1912 Pike Place Starbucks, I dropped by on Tuesday the 14th.  I took a couple of pics, and for fun, here are a few of them:

I ordered a mocha with Cubano shots, and stood at the bar area watching the barista work.  I find watching a manual espresso machine to be enchanting!  I snapped this random picture as I stood watching the bar barista in action.

One of my favorite baristas was working when I dropped by last Tuesday.  Shelly was at the register.  I think she has been there for a lot of years!  Anyway, I always like seeing her.  She makes jewelry as a hobby, and if you want to visit Shelly’s Etsy page, click here.

Hope you enjoyed this visit to 1912 Pike Place Starbucks with me!
