Actually, according to this piece, it's for "barista re-education". To focus on the coffee customer's experience.
I'd like there to be more room at the tables for wheelchairs. Did I say that? It really would enhance my experience to be able to sit at a table, no matter how much I like or don't like my coffee.
Just think - at 5:30 p.m. EST all the Starbucks' doors will close and employees will inspire each other, improve their favorite beverage - but hey -
Getting in the door - and staying there - without other customers falling all over me and sometimes into my lap really is important.
Guys? Guys? Put down the whipped cream, okay? Really I just want you to try that table over there - a tad more room there - the frappucino tastes fine just the way it is....
