How Far Will You Go For the Bean?

iheartcoffee

Random thought this morning:

Today, I drove to a different Starbucks than I usually do just because I was more interested in the experience of going besides just the caffeine punch to the face.

I drove another 10 minutes, waited in line an additional 10 minutes, and didn’t have any conversation other than ordering my Americano.

In my usual spot, which is right around the corner (literally) I don’t have any lines, I have active conversations with the employees (who actually know my drink and my name), and I get the same exact thing.

The big difference is that the one I went to today is the original Bux in town, located in the downtown area, is more “hip” and “trendy” and obviously more “frequented.”

What’s wrong with me? What was I thinking? How far will you go for the bean and, perhaps more importantly, why?

The End.

    I hop between about 3 different Buxes… But I do have a "main Bux" that I go to. That's the one where they know my name and my drink and even ask about my vacations and weekends and sometimes how worship went! I'm going to be moving closer to town in a year or so and I won't be driving by that Bux anymore… it will be a sad day when I have to make a new Bux my "main Bux". It's all about community. That's what we're all about at churches… St. Arbucks is no different.

    I love my Bux, great people. But. lately I've been doing meetings at a bakery that has coffee for 1.50 and free refills. But I still get my Americano 1-2x's week. Most of the local pastors hang at Bux.

      uh,oh…I feel the urge for a cup.

    Yeah I hate that St. Arbucks even has drive thrus now. I only always go in. Unfortunately, the one by my house is awful and always get drinks wrong but are nice ppl. The one by the church knows my name, my drink, writes it on the cup for me, puts a smiley face on there sometimes, i hold up the line in conversation with them. They ARE the experience :)
