Its a scientific fact that, for fans of Starbucks, each day is divided into two distinct stages B.S. and A.S.: before Starbucks and After Starbucks. Researchers who've studied the Before Starbucks period say it resembles some sort of zombified state of haziness, while the After Starbucks stage more closely resembles normal homo sapien behavior. If all of this data sounds familiar, its because Starbucks has become such a regular part of everyone's day that most of the population is fueled by it. And it didn't happen by accident. Starbucks became king of the coffee heap by offering unparalleled service and a ridiculously good cup of coffee.
