I visited my mom and my sister in Saint Paul. My mom had surgery and I bought her a stuffed caribou. She loved that thing and slept with it in the hospital. Unfortunately, it was lost at the hosptial. I live in Seattle and worked in the Starbucks Roasting Plant for 12 years. I like Starbucks coffee but the quality did not survive our departure from hand roasting. I have to say that Caribou coffee is way better than Starbucks. I love the taste of Caribou coffee. And the baristas were all very friendly (of course, it was Minnesota). I hope Caribou is around for a long time. Caribou rocks!
