Once upon a time, Starbucks had only one storefront.
Forty years ago, in 1971, when Starbucks opened their first gourmet coffee shop, coffee typically came in a vacuum packed tin can. But Starbucks changed all that by buying beans from Peets Coffee then roasting and selling not only the beans but cups of espresso and lattes as well. Originally located at 2000 Western Avenue where it served the public cups of coffee from 1971-1975 when it was moved to the current location in the Pike Place Market at 1921 Pike Place. Tourists especially flock to this location, to buy coffee (and cups that can only be purchased in this store) and to take photos of themselves with the store in the background. While I do drink Starbucks coffee, it is not my favorite bean, my favorite (and award winning) is Dillanos Coffee which is roasted in Sumner and served in various latte stands in the area. My favorite stand that serves Dillanos is Big Foot Java, oh that would be a good post, yes?
Thanks for joining me today, for the view that is right here! ~ Madge
