Starbucks has become a synonym for coffee! For so many out there who just can-freaking-not function without coffee, Starbucks is a life saver! It is a giant in coffee industry and is thriving in such a way that no one can beat it in any way! Let’s know more about the company that keeps us human all the day, without hurting anyone. Here are some fun & interesting facts about Starbucks-
1. I don’t need a freaking introduction!
Starbucks stopped printing its name on the cups because the company is sure that everyone identifies its brand just with the logo. Well! That’s not over confidence folks; we all know that, don’t we?

2. Starbucks wines!
Another example to show that we can see our coffee mogul expanding its wings is that the company is taking partnerships with other companies and is selling beverages like wine in some of its outlets! If we can’t resist coffee, then we sure as hell can’t resist wine, right? Come on Starbucks, you are heading right!

3. Two teachers…one writer and a world altering coffee shop!
Starbucks was first started by two teachers and a writer. Later Howard Schultz had taken up the company and made it into a world class business, but it was started by Gordon Bowker, Zev Siegl and Jerry Baldwin. Anyway perfect coffee is what we all ask for! Who owns it doesn’t make much difference (no offense intended )!

4. They kept our convenience in mind (and thank god for that!).
Do you know what Starbucks was initially going to be named? ‘Pequod’. Yah that’s bizarre and we are very happy with the current and much-easy-to pronounce name (since we use it as much as we use our own name!).
5. Wild to gentle!
The Starbucks logo was also a bit different with a much wild mermaid until 1992, unlike the peaceful mermaid we know today (just as we become from wild creatures to tamed ones in the span of a cup of coffee)!

6. Damn secrecy! We want our daily coffee dose!
The CIA quarters never allow anyone to know anything about them. That’s why they did not allow anyone to establish anything in their close quarters. Except Starbucks! Nobody is above a perfect coffee! They take extreme measure in checking the background of the Starbucks workers though!
7. Lemme study the menu in the time of having 2, 3, 4,…. Coffees!
What’s your favorite coffee at Starbucks? Wait wait! Lemme give you the menu first. Then you can select from the 87,000 combinations! Don’t you get astonished buddies! It’s damn true. Ok… may be its safe to say that we better stick to our regular favorite!

8. Push your stomach’s limits!
How much coffee can your stomach take? Ok let’s put it this way. What is the storage capacity of your stomach? Yayyy! I know the answer!!! It is slightly less than the amount of coffee your ‘Trenta’ (the largest cup size of Starbucks) can store! But since it contains our favorite coffee, we are gonna push our limits, aren’t we?

With the amount of milk used in Starbucks yearly, we can fill 155 swimming pools that can be used in Olympics!
10. No coffee in Starbucks…only beans!
When Starbucks was under the initial management, they had only sold coffee beans. Which means that if we went into Starbucks then, we would be given no coffee!! Isn’t it too awful to imagine?
