#2 - Do the citizens of Abbotsford drink Starbucks?

Here's an easy place to stop along the way, just off the Highway at Mt. Lehman in Abbotsford.

I had to wonder how popular Starbucks would be in the more conservative neighbourhoods of Abbotsford. I'll need to check - there's at least two other Abbotsford locations listed. This location may serve the commuters going West for work.

While inside, I saw a neat tea infuser in a clear glass - on special! Thought it a great idea for that special woman in my life. It's got that new "Double-wall" glass, so you don't need a handle, and the stainless infuser comes with a lid for keeping the heat in, or resting the insert in.
Here it is, in action!
I'll be on vacation this week, so I'll see if I can visit a couple locations in Ontario...

First java - 8660 200th Street, Langley

It's only fitting that the first "official" site I visit is the one I buy at frequently. It's only 2 minutes from my work, and decidedly too convenient on my way. As I left, I noticed another Remdal truck in the parking lot, and waved a "hi" to Dave as he left with his cup too.

The service is always friendly, albeit sometimes slow, but how can you not love your nearest Starbucks.

Getting started & getting around

A new year and with it a new year resolution. Those that know me, know I love coffee. So in the year, a bold and crazy plan to try to visit each Starbucks location in Metro Vancouver.

The first challenge - to download & edit the list from their website. Deleting the Chapters bookstore locations, and the Safeway locations (never quite the same service, and sometimes the coffee there's just not quite right!), leaves me with 210 locations in my quest.

If only the snow, rain, and generally bad weather to travel around would let up!

Join me along the road, or in the drivethru, or at the espresso bar.
