Inside the World's Largest Starbucks, Cait Without Borders

Calling all coffee addicts! If Starbucks is your preferred method of caffeine ingestion, hop on a plane and head over to Shanghai, where the world's biggest Starbucks just opened. Although I am not a coffee drinker, I knew I had to see the 29,000 square foot, two-story ode to java for myself. Living as an expat in this rapidly changing, vibrant city has been an adventure and visiting the Starbucks Reserve Roastery is just the latest chapter.

Since this bean palace only opened a few weeks ago, you can still count on waiting in a line to get inside. But once you enter those understated, wooden doors, get ready for a coffee-drinkers' paradise.

Upon entering, you receive a map (yes, a map) of the roastery, complete with "ten must visit experiences".
