If you’re a serial Starbucks coffee date canceler, this week is the week to reschedule!

hours Wednesday, Feb. 26, for remedial espresso training for its baristas. However, not included in the closure are the Starbucks locations inside Kroger Co. stores, including the one in Middletown. Starbucks officials said
the in-store training program was designed to foster enthusiasm in its 135,000 employees and improve the quality of drinks made by its baristas. Staff photo by Nick Graham
