Delta Starbucks coffee has been added to all of Delta flights as of February 1, 2015. A few weeks ago, I found the one Starbucks coffee machine in all of the Sky Clubs, and it made for some great coffee. So on this flight, I just had to try out a freshly brewed cup of Starbucks quality coffee.
Delta Starbucks First Class
Upon entering the flight I was stopped at the galley by another First Class passenger who was using the bathroom, and then 1 of the flight attendants further held up the boarding by moving things around in the coat closet. I didn’t mind as I got to get a look at the galley and see how the coffee brewing was going. Unfortunately at this point it hadn’t started, but i was only the second person onboard.
After settling down into seat 2D, my coat was taken to be hung in the closet and the flight attendant returned to take drink orders. For me it was easy:
Flight Attendant: “Would you care for anything to drink?”
Weekly Flyer: “I’ll take a Starbucks coffee”
Flight Attendant: “Would you like any cream or sugar”
Weekly Flyer: “I’ll take it black, thank you”
She returned a few minutes later to let me know it would be a few minutes for the coffee to finish brewing. In the mean time, other passengers received their drinks including Jack on the rocks by a well known person (more on that in another post), cranberry juice and more.
About 5-7 minutes after ordering the coffee, it was delivered. I imagine about 1/3 of the plane had boarded by this time, so there was plenty of time left to finish the coffee.
The coffee came in a small paper cup with the Starbucks logo on it. And boy was it good. A freshly brewed cup of Starbucks coffee in First Class on a Delta flight. Who would have thought it could taste so good.
The Starbucks coffee rollout we mentioned a few weeks ago with Delta is now complete. You’ll now be able to find a quality cup of Starbucks coffee onboard your next Delta flight.
The next move in all of this, I suspect, is to continue rolling out Starbucks coffee machines across all of the Sky Clubs in the United States. So far, I’ve only found the 1 Starbucks coffee machine in the Seattle Sky Club, but the Sky Club team there indicated that it is a pilot program and we would soon see more of them across the country.
