We finally made it to Starbucks
For our date this week we had one purpose, to get in a taxi and head to Starbucks. And that's exactly what happened. No changing these plans.
Thanks to our amazing teammates who gave us one coupon for a free drink, we entered a little piece of America and enjoyed our two hour date at half price.
I talked about Starbucks with students and many wondered why I like it so much.
Starbucks is consistent. I know what drink I'll receive each time I order a vanilla latte. And anywhere I go, the drink will taste the same. I joked about the campus coffee shop (just as expensive, btw) that I never know what drink I'll end up with. It all depends on who's working making the coffee drinks on a given day. But with Starbucks, it's the same every time.
Much like McDonald's, I'll get the same hamburger at every McDonald's. It's a strange world comparing Starbucks to McDonald's.
It's a whole new world now with Starbucks in Harbin.
