My first experience in Starbucks

To start with,

“Coffee is not just a word, it is a kind of emotion”

I am a coffee addict. It doesn’t mean that I don’t like tea. I am used to all flavoury drinks but coffee takes a special stand in my heart. Coffee has the power to cure all kinds of heartaches. It’s a personal experience Lol😂!

On 22nd January 2020, I was heading to Bangalore for an interview. It was an informal interview. I was told that it’ll take place in a casual setting such as over coffee or lunch. I was tensed a little bit about my interview. As we all have that kinda flip- flop feeling when we get into an interview right?

After reaching Bangalore, I made a call to my interviewer and asked where should I come. She shared a location and asked me to come there. Guess what?

I was told to come to Starbucks for my interview. I was really surprised. Finally, my dream came true. My long-term wish was to visit Starbucks at least once in my lifetime.

By God’s grace, I got a chance to visit Starbucks. All my anxiety turned out to be happiness and excitement. From Bangalore junction, I booked a cab and went to a Starbucks coffee shop. I smiled and entered in as if I have won an Oscar award. Oh gosh! Wonderful atmosphere with wonderful employees. They greeted me with a full of smile and it was a friendly attitude. The waiter asked me about my order. I told him that I am waiting for a person to come. He smiled at me and said ok. I was enjoying that lovely moment. The coffee smell was haunting me. Mixed combo fragrance. After 15min my interviewer came in. The first word she asked me was coffee????

Have you ordered anything?

I told her that I was waiting for her to come. She ordered 2 cups o lattes. She inquired about my whereabouts. It was like a friendly interview. Just coffee and us. We had a good conversation. It all felt like I am talking to one of my friends. All went good as if the taste of latte. The employee behavior, in both how to be personable with customers and knowledge of the product offering, provided a clear-cut view of the items. It was a very neat gesture. I was highly satisfied with their service. It was a breezy feel with a cup of love. It all turned out to be an auspicious day for me. I cracked my interview. Great things happened in a single day. It is unusual for me, Yes of course it’s really surprising because I haven’t tasted victory rather I have tasted more coffee in my life. Two happiness shared with a cup of coffee.

Of course, Good things start with a cup of coffee. Do you agree with me?
