For those who knew me since years ago through my ask.fm profile, you will exactly know my favorite place to spend my time. I know, I know, people say that it's 100% overrated and the coffee, compared to Indonesian locals-- or Italian, since I just got back from there, is nowhere close. Now I will finally answer why I keep going back to this American coffeehouse chain.
I find the calm in the middle of the noise
I could set up the volume until maximum and made my head explode. But no, I prefer to work in the middle of the crowd. Weird, but I do believe I'm not the only one. When everyone is busy with their business, I feel like I need to progress on something as well. Plus, each time I get bored, I can always eavesdropping my next table and laugh for nothing. Kidding, well, not really.
I need that extra, extra, extra shot
Yeah you're right, my latte always has an extra shot in it. I'm not shy to admit I'm a caffein junkie. Like the old saying: "Life doesn't start before a (grande) of coffee.
I got lactose intolerant, like the rest of the world
You know what a creamy thing called milk gives me each time I took them? Pimples! I can't abuse myself by taking 3 espressos or americanos in one day. I do need some additional. Ever since they add almond milk in France to their menu, I always go for it. Soy on a coffee? Nan, forget it.
They are open every single fckn day
You know you work too much until you need to look for a Starbucks on Sunday or any holiday just to get in the mood to finish everything before the deadline. Starbucks is my favorite place when I can buy a grande / venti cappuccino and then work myself to death. Just sit next to an electric plug, bring every charger I need (iPhones, Macbook, etc) and then I'm good to dork.
I love to "Pump it up"
Do you speak Starbucks? If you do you might know exactly how many pumps of classic syrup they put on your frappuccino? Don't worry! Like everyone else, me too, like to spoil myself with an extra pump of caramel syrup, with the calories within, of course.
Now you tell me what makes you return to Starbucks on the comments below!
