Starbucks Doesn’t Write Names On Cups At CIA Headquarters, Because Spies!

The Starbucks location at CIA Headquarters serves coffee just like any other Starbucks, but there are certain things that are very different about this particular location. They call it the “Stealthy Starbucks” because, well, spies need to be all secret about where they are and what they’re drinking in between missions.

The receipts only say Store #1 without specifying where exactly it’s located at the CIA campus and employees not only have to go through special training, but they can’t even tell anyone where they work. You can’t use your rewards card for fear of it being used for nefarious purposes and no names are printed on the cups (not even aliases) to keep everyone’s identities secret.

Of course, we all know that Starbucks baristas can’t spell names, so the names on cups are basically encrypted anyway.
