An Open Letter To Starbucks

Dear Starbucks —

I love you.

I mean, I really, really, really love you. Up until about a year ago, I didn’t drink coffee, lattes or anything with caffeine.

But I discovered you and realized how happy you made me.

You made me trust you, with your delicious drinks (warm and cold) and your satisfying pastries.

You showed me a beautiful side of yourself, in the form of a Cinnamon Dolce Latte, with her sweet flavors of brown sugar, cinnamon and butter.


And I fell in love with your Cinnamon Dolce Latte. To the point of crazy/mad love. This single drink made me swoon.

And, perhaps foolishly, I began planning our future together, anticipating the next time I’d order another one. Enjoying a Cinnamon Dolce Latte on a Saturday morning or after lunch on an uneventful Tuesday afternoon.

But on my way to work last week, I swing by my neighborhood Starbucks only to realize I won’t be enjoying a Cinnamon Dolce Latte until December at the earliest.

You have discontinued My Favorite Starbucks Drink for another eight months; yet there’s no guarantee Cinnamon Dolce Latte and I will meet again when this year draws to a close.

Starubucks, you broke my heart.

Until I need another latte fix, and I’m bellied up to the counter ordering a White Chocolate Mocha.
