Starbucks Update: The Promise of a Sweeter Finish, Every Day

Stopping by the shop on First and Marion, there was a line out the door for free (short) cups of Starbucks new coffee. Something old, too: their former logo, with the split-leg mermaid in brown.

My barista was happy to tell me why this coffee is special, saying: "It's intended for everyday drinking, with a sweeter finish."

Where is it from, I wondered? "It's a Latin American blend, but they haven't told me exactly what's in it. They're being pretty hush hush about it."

I have to say, this cup was smoother than their usual brew.
