Just because you asked…


When a dear friend asked about this, I smiled.

She asked if we went to the very 1st Starbucks that was founded in Seattle? Yes we did.

This was where Starbucks was born, at Pike Place Market in Seattle, and it was in 1971. We went there and yes, it was as if everyone thinks the coffee from the 1st store is actually different. No, it wasn’t. It tasted like any other starbucks coffee in the world. It was very, very crowded and lots of tourists were taking photos.

But we are still suckers so we bought mugs from the very 1st starbucks store.
