If college has taught me anything thus far, it’s how to love coffee… My senior year has definitely caused me to befriend the baristas at my beloved local Starbucks and now my daily coffee stop will be even more convenient.
Thursday brought the announcement of Starbucks’ new delivery service as well as the option to order online in order to cut down on lines in the store and to encourage the use of the app. These innovative changes won’t be happening immediately, they will start with select stores executing beginning in December and branching out from there but I am more than excited for the change to hit Abilene. Similar to Taco Bell, it’s incredibly intelligent for these restaurants to allow consumers to order online and before hand.
I personally love the change. There is nothing more frustrating than waiting for the poor baristas to try and make the order for the person in front of me, which is always something ridiculous such as a grande soy carmel macchiato skinny and upside down with no whip or whatever it is that the youths order these days, give me my tall black coffee and let me continue on with my day!
To this I say: you go Starbucks, you go.
