Caffeine-based Life

Of course, the arrival of the first Starbucks in Vienna, a couple years ago, was a shock for everybody ... by now it can be said they helped make take-away coffee a more commonplace thing here in Vienna.
This might make no difference to some traditionalist coffehouse-goers, but in places like the General Hospital, where the crappiness of the vending-machine-coffee depends on the station you're at, Starbucks makes just so much sense!
And it wasn't permitted to smoke in the Hospital in the first place ;)
