Well, that didn’t last very long I guess. The “learning environment” that was 15th Avenue E Coffee & Tea — a Starbucks-inspired coffee shop with a very raw look that mimicked local coffee shops in the Seattle area — is set to simply become a Starbucks by the end of January. The coffee experiment which opened in July 2009 was not very popular with the locals as some people find it unbelievable that a big corporation can ever handle opening a nice looking coffee shop. I suppose this is proof that they can’t, right?
