In spite of this week’s Slate article “Who Makes the Best Coffee?” I’m not buying it that Starbucks ranked last behind McDonalds and Dunkin Donuts…. With all due respect to my Boston extended family, I’ve had some unbelievably bad Dunkin cups of coffee, at the airport and mostly at my in-laws lake house (which usually involve the father in law making the pot).
I will always declare my undying love for my SBUX triple tall, but….since i’m staying at the Ritz this week, I’m going to treat myself this morning to its coffee partner of choice, which blows all three of the above out of the water…Peet’s Coffee.
Excuse me while I head down to the espresso bar..

There are worse places to work if you’re a coffee lover. I am spoiled. Starbucks one-cup grind and drip at the office. And take a trip to Redmond and it gets better. I’ve been meaning to post this snapshot, a peak inside the Executive Briefing Center on Microsoft’s campus.
It was back in March when I was there for our CIO Summit; lots of customers in town from all over the U.S. A great event; what made it fun for me was this coffee stand outside of our press briefing room…yum! One more close up….
