Dear Frap Fanatic,

Yep, there is a Starbucks at CIA Headquarters! It’s actually one of the busiest Starbucks in the country. We need our caffeine jolt just like everyone else.

The menu is the same as the Starbucks on your local street corner. They even play the same modern music, and we have a comfortable seating area for officers to take a break, hang with a co-worker, or talk shop… as long as the conversations are unclassified of course.

The only big difference between this Starbucks and your regular Starbucks: Baristas don’t take customers’ names. Our officers order their cup of joe incognito.

~ Molly
