Why is Starbucks called Starbucks?
The waitstaff in Keelung told me last night it is some old Arabian nights story. But one customer there, in a very nice Starbucks shop overlooking the harbor, beautiful night view of ships coming and going in the darkness and rain, if you like that kind of thing … told me the name comes from an American cartoon or novel or something. Anybody know?
Mr John Starbucks, maybe? Or stars = money? Or just a name?
