    Great! Now if they would only get with the program and serve Organic Coffee & foods, they’d be spot on.

    Con mis compañerod de trabajo en siempre vamos a Starbucks los martes, espero que algún día los locales en Chile sean como estos.

    Y es muy bueno el blog :)

    My question is, how many times have the containers been used for shipping coffee (or ANY products) BEFORE they are retired? Hopefully it’s not another example of one-time use.

    attractive 2nd chance that should inspire more use of containers as a building option.

    Nice that they reused the containers…trying to appear to be “green”. Fact is, it is STILL a drive-thru & therefore a major cause of pollution. Another case of greenwashing. Consumers are far more savvy than they appear to believe!

    It is a good concept and one better seen in a project called Container City done in Puebla Mexico. A mix use application done about six years ago.

    old news that crapbucks is capitalizing on. this has been a progressive trend for years among independent businesses for years. independant businesses that crapbucks would put out of business in a heartbeat.
