Downtown Seattle Starbucks: As Seen Through Instagram.

Yes, I know I'm very late to the Instagram craze.  In fact, years late.  To be fair, I have an Android phone.  I have had an Instagram profile for all of about one month and I'm pretty much hooked, wondering why in the world didn't I download this app sooner. I thought I'd walk you through my view of Starbucks on a day-to-day basis, as seen through the lens of Instagram. Pacific Place Starbucks: One of many stores that I'll sometimes stop at for a morning cup of coffee, on my way into work.  This photo was indeed a quick pic on my way into work in the morning.

I love this picture of partner Desiree at the Pacific Place Starbucks. I sat drinking Ethiopia and took just one photo, and this was it.  You can just see Desiree's positive energy:Desiree pacific placeThe First and Pike Starbucks, at the entrance to the Pike Place Market.  Everything about this store is hugely photogenic.  Shown here is an exterior view, plus an interior view with some nice chalkboard art.  As I understand it, that's the store's manager holding the large five-pound bullet of coffee:
