The CIA Has Its Own Starbucks (Video)

It’s said one of America’s busiest Starbucks is in Langley, Virginia, but as it’s on the CIA headquarters campus, not many know a whole lot about it.

It’s said one of America’s busiest Starbucks is in Langley, Virginia, but as it’s on the CIA headquarters campus, not many know a whole lot else about it.

Reportedly, the coffee chain outpost planted on the wooded compound looks a lot like any other.

Among the immediately noticeable differences is that there are no names written on the cups there.

It’s said they tried the system, but such potential breeches of identity made the patrons uncomfortable.

That’s much of the reason behind that particular Starbucks not offering a rewards program, either.

A bit more time spent observing the clientele is said to reveal another oddity – nobody’s on their smartphones tweeting, texting, or playing Candy Crush.

Such personal devices are forbidden on the grounds and must be kept in employees’ cars.

Even baristas have to keep tight-lipped about their jobs.

They can mention they work in a federal building, but that’s about it.

For those who get lost on the way to work, GPS is of little help as when the work address is typed in, nothing shows up.

Those things aside, plus some heightened security measures, much of the day is still all about coffee and baked goods.
