Starbucks Reserve! - New at Brookfield Place:

The store:

"Offers the company’s line of rare, small lot Reserve coffees – only available in limited quantity in around 2,000 stores around the world, roasted at its Roastery in Seattle. Each coffee is one-of-a-kind—sourced from small coffee-growing regions in Latin America, Africa and Asia / Pacific Islands."

(You may need some brew to perk up after a marathon shopping trip to Brookfield's new Saks!)
