28 Countries, 1 Day: Starbucks

The new Starbucks commercials really captures what it means to be together. As someone who worked at Starbucks for good while, I can attest to the fact that these kind of connections do happen at Starbucks, but they also don't happen only at Starbucks! This video is a great reminder that connecting with others--finding understanding, sympathy, joint passions--is the most valuable part of life. Without each other, what joys can we find in life? This video is best watched on Starbucks User channel, as it has an interactive feature there that allows you to expand each groups stories and find out about the scrapbooking stories, the open roads group and more. Watching it at (http://www.youtube.com/user/Starbucks) is a bit more fun, as you can control the videos path! This video is just the beginning of all the stories you can find in Starbucks around the world. Great job on Starbucks part to remind us to appreciate those around us, but don't just do it at Starbucks!

I've always been a fan of Starbucks! They may be a huge chain but their shops still can have an independent cafe feeling.
Those kids from Hong Kong who held auditions for their band at a Starbucks though. I can't even imagine what it would be like if I was working at my cafe and there were kids rocking out in the corner.
I love how they capture the little moment that occurs in a coffee shop. Overall, a great reminder to appreciate friends and loved ones.
This is such a great commercial. While I'm not the biggest fan of Starbucks, I love this message!
@GetFitwithAmy Agreed! I definitely have always had my favorites because of that feel, and my customers would tell me the same thing!

How To Make Sex Coffee (Yup, it's a thing.)
Sex coffee is a thing. I'm not even kidding. Studies have shown that even on its own, drinking 2 cups of coffee a day can improve your sex life. Combine that with a few ancient superfoods, and you've got some truly sexy health benefits. Whether or not they actually make your bedroom activities more exciting... that's for you to find out. And report back, obviously. ;) What makes this coffee so sexy? Each ingredient has unique libido-boosting, stimulating properties that have been relied on since ancient times. Check it out: MACA: an Aztec root, usually ground into a powder. An adaptogen, it supports your body in creating the enzymes it needs to balance hormones and enhance fertility. It's often touted as an aphrodisiac, which can increase libido. CACAO: Raw cacao is a stimulant. It gets your blood pumping and triggers your body to release seratonin, which enhances mood. The Journal of Sexual Medicine published a study that found women who ate chocolate daily scored slightly higher on the Female Sexual Index, aka the chart that measures female sexual function. CINNAMON: Cinnamon promotes vital energy, keeping your body from that desire-sucking lag that can come after a busy day. HONEY: Honey may increase stamina, and has been shown to increase virility and fertility. COCONUT MILK: Many cultures have used coconut milk to naturally balance hormones and to increase sex drive. Full of healthy fats, coconut milk will give you energy for sex, without a nasty after-crash. (Source: YourTango) Are you ready to take the plunge and try it out yourself? Grab a partner, because here's the recipe that might change your life forever. Sex Coffee Makes 1 serving. Time: 5 minutes. Difficulty: Easy Drink once or twice a week. Tastes like a delicious, spiced Aztec drink, similar to Mexican hot chocolate.
