A Piece of Home
I'm really not a Starbucks fan. It's too bitter. I much prefer Caribou Coffee (which I had never heard of until I moved to Minneapolis). The last thing I'd do before I got on the plane to go to Korea was to get a Campfire Mocha from the airport Caribou. The people there know me now and know where I am going. Well, yesterday Linda said she saw some Koreans on the subway with Caribou Coffee. So she emailed the company and they told her where in Korea they were. Today she and I went and I got my Campfire Mocha (she got the Turtle Mocha/Latte whatever). We were taking a bunch of pictures we were so excited. One of the employees spoke very good English and told us that there are actually 4 (the reply to Linda's email said they want to open 50 in the next year). So there are two very happy Americans in Bongcheon, who plan on going again soon.
