Here’s a really comprehensive follow up on the Starbucks Challenge created by Robert Blum that maps all the del.icio.us tags for people requesting fair trade coffee at a Starbucks.
As a little background, GreenLA Girl started this back in October (Fair Trade Month) when Starbucks was promoting its fair trade coffee. However, not everyone is able to get fair trade poured for them at Starbucks and the corp didn’t seem to understand that. So folks have been documenting their experiences at requesting fair trade coffee at their local Starbucks.
Personally I tried it twice. Once at the Starbucks on Sunset & Gower where they happily had it brewing and the other time at the Glendale Blvd. & Fletcher location where they French pressed it and didn’t even charge me! So my success rate has been 100%.
