It opened last December at Northpark Center. Until now you had to order the pods either by email or phone, so I was really looking forward to being able to buy them right in the store and also tasting first before buying a sleeve of ten.
I visited there this weekend and couldn't believe how snobby everyone was! I first spent $50 at the café for 3 coffees & desserts toward the front of the store, which although good was a bit pricey. I then went toward the back of the store where the machines, accessories & espressos/coffees were displayed. You had to "wait for the next specialist" and then he looked me up in "the system". I had two elderly ladies (my mom & a friend) in tow, and another specialist was very rude to them because 'they were in the way of his terminal'. I only tasted one espresso because I felt so uncomfortable. I bought a dozen sleeves of espresso, including some of the one I tasted, and "got outa Dodge".
So, has anyone else been there? If so, what was your experience. Is this just Northpark Center in general? I mean, I felt I was dressed nicely and didn't look like some hayseed just off the back 40...
