“Stealthy Starbucks”

cia-starbucks

Located inside the CIA’s headquarters in Langley, VA, Starbucks “Store Number 1″ is allegedly one of the busiest in the world, and also due to security risks, the only shop where customer’s names are not written onto cups. Yet somehow through all the secrecy we’re able to learn that the most popular items ordered are vanilla lattes and lemon pound­cake during the day, and double espressos and Frappuccinos at night. The store’s manager has one goal for the operation, to “help humanize the environment” for the agents who are isolated without cellphones inside the secretive campus. Because lord knows, we have to keep them as human as possible.
