Starbucks gave us these virtual backgrounds so it feels like we’re working in a cafe again

Miss buying tea or coffee and sitting at your laptop to work with that cafe ambiance around you? Me, too. 5 months into the quarantine and I miss just sitting down, having a cup of warm (or iced!) tea, and letting myself be absorbed in my work in a quiet, relaxing environment like a coffee shop. I miss the interiors, the roasted smells, and the temptation to buy another cup when work is getting too stressful. It’s a good feeling and I miss it dearly.

Well, Starbucks was sweet enough to bring themselves “close to [our] homes” by creating these virtual backgrounds of their stores + their Spotify playlist to boot. Your next Zoom meeting or chikahan session will feel like you’re out and about, something many of us haven’t been able to do.

Check out the virtual backgrounds below–they’re too cute! And it makes me miss my hibiscus tea.
