mathias and i went to starbucks at fullerton water boat house. it is a truly beautiful store (perfect for studying). not only do they have a normal coffee order station and a pick up station, but also a slow coffee bar as they call it. we ordered some coffee from the ‘slow coffee bar’ which was an amazing experience. normally i do not prefer starbucks coffee, but when i am traveling starbucks is good. i mean you know what it is, you know what you get and there is wifi. this time my starbucks experience was totally different. instead of the normal triple-soy-latte to go, i sat down and talked with the barista. he was explaining everything about the beans, how to grind it and the water temperature and the equipment. honestly i felt like i was at a lecture in how to prepare the perfect cup of coffee. we tasted the beans, and watch him carefully measure everything, then touch the chemex to understand how it worked and then got a coffee. he told us to smell it, and sip it and taste the coffee carefully. that is what i would call great service.
