Free Starbucks Coffee Today...

...for a half hour. A special thanks to my friend Polson for the heads up on this.

Go forth caffeine addicts, and drink from the great green bosom that is one of your two dozen neighborhood Starbucks.

Below is the Reuters story announcing this deal:

April 8, 2008 -- LOS ANGELES - In a bid to reinvigorate lackluster sales, Starbucks will introduce an everyday brew called Pike Place Roast today, and for 30 minutes will hand out free 8-ounce samples.

Free cups of the new coffee, which the company said has a smoother flavor and finish, will be available starting at noon (EDT) at all of Starbucks' 7,100 company-operated stores in the United States.

Um... Yum! said...

If you went, you probably know by now that they also changed the logo. I was just ranting to my friend about it. I don't understand why no one else sees the obvious but me.

Ok, so Starbucks is going all out.
Free coffee, retro look, roast dating the coffee.
Here is the deal...there is a place in our own back yard that roast dates things too, and nothing is as old as 3/20 (I saw that one Sunday afternoon, and is that 2008 or 2007?). And this place does not have to try to be retro, because it is!
This coffee roaster has been in D.C. since 1916.
