Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. What if they are a little course, and you may get your coat soiled or torn? What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled in the dirt once or twice. Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

A cup of cappuccino

A cup of cappuccino

I enjoy simple pleasures in life, one of them is a nice hot cup of cappuccino. Few times a week I find myself at a Starbucks location ordering “1% XHot Triple Venti Cappuccino.”

Why Starbucks you might ask — convenience for the most part, comfortable seating arrangement, ambience and consistent flavor. In order to complete the Starbucks Experience it is esssential to understand their internal lingo otherwise your eyes may glaze over the multitude of choices in what is essentially “just coffee”.

I found the following link while surfing and it has definitely taken my understanding of Starbucks complicated menu  to an all new level — reminds me of a book by Pine & Gilmore “The Experience Economy” (one of my favorite books, look out for a book review soon, right here).

Whether you love or hate them, Starbucks management has done a remarkable job at creating a brand and a strong customer culture. In Howard Schultz’s (CEO of Starbucks) own words from the book, “If you pour your heart into your work, or into any worthy enterprise, you can achieve dreams others may think impossible.”
