Watered Down Starbucks @ SJSU - RAPP81's LiveJournal... Despite the name, there's no rap here!
Time for some of Rex's eloquent rhetoric

Watered Down Starbucks @ SJSU
One of the things I wished upon SJSU was a convienent Starbucks location.  The nearest Starbucks is about two blocks from the northwest end of campus, which was a bit far from north end of mid-campus (where my last apartment was) and from the dorms on the southeast end of campus.  You can't imagine how I so badly wanted a cup of coffee at 6AM in the morning, because nothing near my apartment was open at that hour!  Food service at SJSU, even during finals week, didn't start till at least 6:45.

I found out that a Starbucks was going to be at the new Campus Village and was joyed, but that glee soon faded when I also found out that Spartan Shops was just bringing in Starbuck's "We Proudly Brew" program.  Ugh.  That meant Spartan Shops employees just brewing coffee... not the hot baristas Starbucks would hire, and no Starbucks employee benefits, since it was not an actual store.  Lame-o!

Oh, here's the Spartan Daily News Link that made this somewhat pointless dribble possible!  LOL

Key point of my dribble was the hours of operation... NO place near campus is open prior to 6:45

no one should ever be up prior to 6:45. anywhere.

Oh you TVRFT majors who have no concept of taking a 7:15AM final for a 9AM class... lol

7:15 is 30 minutes after 6:45. On most of those days, Boba and Pomegranate have been open for 15 minutes.

But some of us need more PREP time, aka studying, aka reading way before then

and also, what makes you thing Starbucks hire on the basis of looks? and that the average Starbucks employee is better looking than any other barista. You are just letting the uniform sway your judgement, corporate whore.

C'mon... look at the Spartan Shops employee base (other than the bookstore)... Do you find ANY of them cute? And I was only making the comparison between SS employees and Starbucks employees :)
