    So delightful !!!

    Especially your introduction was perfect to amuse a non-coffee- drinker like me. I prefer tea.

    My wife is drinking coffee and she would react similar as you while standing the first time in a "Starbucks". She would propose to change the word coffee in "drinks made with coffee" concerning the Starbucks sortiment.

    I have a very similar experience when visiting McDonalds or BurgerKing two or three times a year looking for that simple hamburger or cheeseburger which actually still exists in a small foot notice between all those "Happy-Kids-Meal-Los-Wochos-Bic-Mac-Farmer-Days-ChickenMcCoffee" stuff they are announcing. I am fascinated each time about the profi-user-kids in front and behind the counter talking to each other in a foreign language.

    But this is going off topic again.

        So you did photograph the landside Starbucks at CPH - Brilliant E! It was that one that delayed me reaching you in the hotel!!!! – I only got the close up view (post #20)– and your second photo explains why. It shows better where the Starbucks is located, in rather a dark corner right back near where one emerges after collecting luggage. When I was there, there were incredibly long queues of people in this arrivals hall, not only emanating from the desks on the left of your photo, but even more so from off to the right, and this resulted in a scrum in front of the escalator which rendered the Starbucks invisible from your second photo viewpoint. So now fully documented, and pakarang will be pleased with us.

            Already an update to Starbucks in Edinburgh!
            It is in Princes Street, not very far from the Starbucks-in-a-bookshop that you already saw.
            And I have similar problems taking photos of it due to the tram road works!

            The Starbucks is actually at first floor level and extends a considerable length over several shops, many more than I was able to photograph with the present restrictions. The already narrowed pavement due to the road works is further obstructed with scaffolding and repairs to adjacent buildings. (These include a Scottish souvenir shop anxious to show it is nevertheless open for business, and so playing deafening bagpipe music and spilling out onto the pavement with racks of postcards, T-shirts and kilts!)

            However, even on this dull rainy day, you can see at least two of the Starbuck’s attractive bay windows. The entrance to the stairs is rather odd, as a Chinese herbalist who currently occupies the adjacent narrow ground level premises shares the vestibule.

              Dang, do I miss slipping down into one of those big chairs at Starbucks with a few friends around... chatting and people watching, whilst sipping incredible coffee creations by friendly and attentive staff that remembers how you want it....

                It does not sound like you are describing a coffeehouse......

                      Bristol 2, Bath 2.
                      No this isn’t the score in a football match, but Seagull’s Starbucks Score during her travels to England last week!


                      This Bristol Starbucks is nicely situated on a corner of a building by a bridge over the river, and has a few tables and chairs outside.


                      Bristol airport has a branch in the departure lounge, where it is competing with some other coffee outlets.


                      I photographed this Starbucks in Bath from the top of a bus on a busy street. It appears to occupy the first floor as well as the ground floor.


                      This is also in Bath, pleasantly situated in a pedestrian shopping street with many small boutiques.


                      As well as the outside seating, a notice in the window indicates additional seating upstairs.

                      Well folks, never mind the ranks we have here on CV – there are other counts to consider, and I can now declare that my Starbucks Score adds up to a grand total of 21 !!!!! Pakarang will be so proud of me!

                        I'm so proud of you!

                        Dang! Why can't we get Starbucks in Norway? What's wrong with the Norskies?

                          Starbucks in Berlin!!!

                            You know how so many dismiss Starbucks as just another example of undesirable globalisation. Our “collecting” Starbucks started out for me as just an enjoyably fun thing to do, but you know, I am starting to be fascinated by the differences between them rather than the similarities. Architecture certainly (my favourite of your Berlin collection is photo 3), but even an insight into the various towns and cities and countries.
                            And with the juxtaposition of reading your posts, I’m realising that I’ve been thinking for a while that McDonalds is nowhere near so culturally interesting!

                              Oh, Captain...my Captain.....

                              *Bees is having an 8-week special on discovering their BOLD coffees...

                              http://www.starbucksbold.com/coffee/...kon-blend.aspx

                              The Yukon Gold this week is described as:

                              Gutsy, robust and ready to face the untamed northern reaches, this coffee has a tale as old as Starbucks itself. Created for the captain of a fishing fleet who wanted to keep his crew happy in chilly sub-arctic seas, this coffee will get you going in the most difficult of times. Even if that difficult time is motivating yourself to get out and walk the dog.

                              WANT SOME??????

                                Starbucks in London Heathrow


                                Terminal 3, London Heathrow Airport.
                                I actually took a hurried photo when also in Terminal 3 in February (all these trips from London!), and the ones I took on my later trip weren’t much better. This compilation is the best I can offer.
