Latte Wars

I’m from the Pacific Northwest (Starbucks territory) but I just visited the East Coast and was struck by the popularity of Dunkin’ Donuts there.  Now Matthew Yglesias (location:  DC) reports that Dunkin has taken the LEED, so to speak, in energy efficient stores.  Among other things, a new store

…will have an on-site Earthworm Casting facility, which will house 80 pounds of red earthworms to eat the waste produced by the store.

Can Starbucks compete?  The Latte Wars enter a new realm.

    Actually, I think that Starbucks is pretty hip to composting, too. Coffee grounds apparently are great for compost, so Starbucks offers their grounds for free to any composting/gardening aficionados who want to come by and pick ’em up.
