They have a good pina colada.

It's an American franchise, and to add insult to injury, it's also a contradiction in terms because espresso is Italian.

Maybe we can teach them a lesson and open a chain of coffee shops and call it 'Espresso Italiano'

What do ya think?...

P.S. Don Godo is back in town...

I've never tried the Pina Colada... but I do like their lattes.

What annoys me about Espresso Americano is that it's so ubiquitous, like the Honduran version of Starbucks. I reconciled myself to this, however, through my assumption that it was a Honduran company. (Actually I distinctly remember a guy at the SPS airport telling me that it was.) Anyway, now that I know they're from Seattle, I'm kinda bummed. (But I don't know if I'm bummed enough to abstain from lattes.... especially at L17 for a large... crap.)

And welcome back Don Godo! I hope you had a good time in France!

Hey, even in seattle you can get really bad coffee.

Why not export it.

i'm going to admit that when i read this, i looked up the coffee place, and it made me kind of excited. I really do like the coffee culture, with the coffee shops we have in the states, and this was completely missing in Costa Rica. I think there were a couple of places here and there, but nothing like this. (all of this aside from the whole american companies going into developing nations who can't afford the stuff anyway blah blah blah. this is purely my love for coffee and coffee shops talking!) and L17? That's like $1 right?

I'm still working out the money thing in my head.
