The first Starbucks opened in Seattle in 1971. Today there are more than 20,000 stores, and business is growing around the globe. Lines form from Brooklyn to Botswana waiting on their orders of demi, grande, venti or trenta of mocha, espresso, dolce, flat, skinny, salted, blonde or latte with triple shots, soy, half-caf, super-heated, iced, room-temp or decaf. If you are in a nanosecond hurry, just shoulder past the peons for your day-starter at the mobile-order mosh pit. The java mumbo jumbo has unfortunately moved into our own Waterworld.
