    Re: Starbucks Coffee Around in the United States and around the World

    Well, i am a tea-drinker...
    From time to time i like a good italian cafe (espresso).
    I have preserved the old coffee mill from my grandmother and grind the beans by hand. That is the perfect smell and arome.

    Regarding Starbucks: it is a really nice design and logo and i think mostly it is about that, i compare it with the Chucks-shoes by Converse.

    It is all about design and life-style, quality is not the question here...

      Good coffee, really good tasting, the best I've ever tasted: In the 360 degree restaurant in the top of the radio/com/tv-tower in Hamburg!
      (That is if taste, not life-style counts)

        Sitting in the top of a TV-tower is also lifestyle(...and taste)! Maybe a different one....a nicer one...

              Starbucks South Bank - 49 Shad Thames, London

              Some more Starbucks from the first part of the Fram cruise in May!(...and before you ask I didn't actually go in any of them!)

                East Building, 3 Tower Place. London



                I spotted this one while checking what the best route to Millenium Pier would be, past the construction works and diversions while wheeling luggage!

                  Guoman Tower Hotel, St Katharine’s Way, London



                  Rather a nice photo at Tower Bridge which could even have gone in the "through the arch" thread, although it was taken rapidly, one-handedly and in un-considered fashion while on the move. Think "Oh look! there's a Starbucks!"

                    3 High Street, Winchester, England



                    Rather more "Olde Worlde" architectural surroundings.

                      I've just found this thread so here are a couple of locations... Starbucks at the top of Sulphur Mountain in Banff, Canada.




                      Pine Street in Seattle..


                      ...and opposite Pike Place Market in Seattle

                        That is one big coffee drinking black bear (in Banff)!

                          Starbucks Waverley Steps – Princes Mall, Edinburgh

                          Another Starbucks in Edinburgh which I hadn't noticed before!
                          That is probably because it is located in the far reaches of a shopping mall that I rarely visit - Princes Mall, formerly called Waverley Shopping Centre and before that Waverley Market.
                          Located next to Waverly Station at the east end of Princes Street, the mall is built below street level so as to comply with the Act of Parliament that prevents any building on the south side of Princes Street obscuring the views.

                          A 1983 photo of Sigve's recently posted here includes the site of the shopping mall before construction, and it clearly shows the slope, actually steps, leading down from Princes Street to the railway station immediately alongside the lower floors of the imposing Balmoral Hotel (then the North British Hotel).

                          In a recent refurbishment of the station, the Waverley Steps have been covered with a glazed roof and escalators have been installed. Half way down is an entrance to the shopping mall. It is at this entrance where the Starbucks is located.



                          Looking up at the Balmoral Hotel through the new roof.




                          I took this while riding down on the uppermost escalator. The bicycles on the top right are parked on the flat roof of the mall, a pedestrian plaza. The entrance to the mall is between the escalators where you see the Starbucks sign, though the café itself is actually on your right as you enter the mall.

                            Starbucks 10-12 Westmoreland Street, Dublin

                            Bewley's Cafe on Westmoreland Street, which dates from 1896, closed in 2004 (together with the Grafton Street cafe which has since re-opened though in modified form). These cafes were something of a Dublin institution.

                            After lying empty for some five years, part of the Westmoreland premises is now a Starbucks, and a branch of TGI Friday is located at the rear of the building with an entrance on an adjacent street, though they are actually connected inside.








                            (There is also another Starbucks across the road in Westmoreland Street within modernised former offices premises which I didn't get to photograph.}

                              I just realized that I haven't even photographed Trondheim's two Starbucks's yet....
