Thumbs up to Starbucks

I have a love of Starbucks. Despite the fact that they are an evil corporate empire, they make good consistent coffee and often offer a nice place sit and relax.

Recently I've noticed two good things about Starbucks.

They've added new gluten-free options to their cake selection. A Belgian chocolate slice or a Seville Orange cake are now available as options. This is great news.

In their Ranelagh shop, I noticed that they had big bags of used coffee grounds available to take away for free for anyone who wanted it for their garden. It lead me to wonder what coffee shops do with their used grounds, but I applaud Starbucks for offering them to customers for a green purpose.
