STARBUCKS CHALLENGE: Success
Don't know what the Starbucks Challenge is? Start here
On our way home via Victoria Station last night we stopped in to the Starbucks in the station facing the public bus station - the ones with all the red buses and not the long distance bus station further up the road.
I asked for a cup of fairtrade coffee and am delighted to say I had absolutely no problem getting a cup of Fairtrade coffee whatsoever.
They had a big tank of it brewing and they did not flinch. Tasted good too. Normally I do not do coffee as I find it gets me flying...so this challenge is gonna be fun. WAHOO!
I suspect that as Fairtrade is quite well developed here in the UK getting Fairtrade coffee at Starbucks in the UK is gonna be easier than Green LA Girl has found it to be stateside.
Overall I imagine that the UK experience should be less stressful than the US experience.
The Starbucks Challenge is a kind of global survey of just how easy it is to get a cup of fairtrade coffee in Starbucks. But we need your help. We want you to take part next time you pass a Starbucks...click here to find out how to participate, and who is participating, in the Starbucks Challenge.
