About – Why this blog:
I have a passion for coffee. I like the way that it really has the ability to bring people together. I like the conversations around it. I like being able to have a common ground to connect with people about. Most of all, I fall in love with those moments when you can see some deep joy in a person’s eyes over discovering a new coffee, learning about coffee, or just hanging out around the coffee – even if not drinking it. Why this blog? It serves a purpose. I wanted to create an online community. I’m not the first Starbucks blogger out there. There are official Starbucks blogs. But I felt like a place with a dash of fun, coffee education, cutting edge information (if I’ve got it!), and real people talking to each other in the comments was still needed on the web. Maybe I was wrong. I don’t know. I’ll have to ponder that over a french press.

Why do you blog about Starbucks?
It’s a hobby. I genuinely enjoy seeing the Starbucks experience come to life, and as I said above, I thought there was a need for an uplifting online Starbucks blog. I’ll blog until I run out of things to say about Starbucks, I guess! I hope to reach others who enjoy making connections over coffee.
Do you have a favorite Starbucks store?
It’s very hard to pick a favorite but there are a few downtown Seattle stores that are superb in every way. I particularly like 4th and Union, Columbia Tower at 4th and Cherry, and 7th and Pike. Of course, 1912 Pike Place is a fantastic Starbucks too.
Do you have any inside scoop about Starbucks?
No. I am just a customer.
Do you work for Starbucks or have you ever worked for Starbucks?
No. I am routinely asked if I work for Starbucks, and I do not work for them. I have never even attempted to enter into a business arrangement with them. No one in my household works for Starbucks either.
