The Starbucks Blog – Or: Why We Love Coffee So Much

The great wide world of coffee and lifestyle

Thunderstorms and Coffee


I am sitting in my livingroom…the lights are out, all of them. The dogs are lying at my feet, listening to the approaching thunderstorm. The clouds get darker and darker, threatening they hover over the streets…people flee into the warmth of their houses.

I decide to get my laptop and a mug of coffee. It is a fascinating atmosphere, the air is heavy with expectancy and then suddenly! A massive lightning struck the horizon, rolling thunder. And then the wind…brushing through the leaves on the trees like a furious monster.

Now the dogs are standing on the sofa, looking outside the window to get a good look at what’s happening in their territory.

Then the rain. Drumming against the windows, impatient and angry. Then again – lightning, fierce and as bright as daylight. The dogs growl quietly, unsure what is happening to their beloved playgrounds, comforting I am padding Bella’s soft floppy ears.

I am sipping another slurp of my coffee, strong and dark, like the storm outside.

Isn’t there something beautiful about a nice lil’ storm?
