Sadly, this is the last full week to enjoy yourself a White Chocolate Mocha or a Java Chip Frappachino at the Altus Starbucks. Starbucks will close it's doors on Sept. 19th. You can probably bet that I will be there almost every morning this week.
On the upside, Starbucks coffee can still be bought at Fred's Expresso Shop. And the coffee at Confectionatley Yours is not too shabby either...
