Starbucks Secrets


One of my best friends, B, recently got a job at Starbucks. I've mentioned before that he is an enthusiast for all things Washington. He even has a tattoo of the state. Since his first day at work, B has ranted and raved non-stop about all the coffees, teas, and various concoctions he has gotten to taste. Some of the drinks he learned about are even considered "secret", as they do not appear on the menu, and are mostly known to employees only.

While on our way to the Pike Place Market today, I decided to interview B, with the goal of trying to find out some of the "Starbucks Secrets". Here are the drinks he told me about:

In the famous words of B's culinary professor, "Starbuck it!"

That's pretty funny because I recently did a Starbucks post and was going to do another because I have totally mixed feelings on it!

Have you read the book: How Starbucks Saved My Life: A Son of Privilege Learns to Live Like Everyone Else by Michael Gates Gill? I recommend it!!!

It's funny how much we enjoy/have in common with each others blogs..
