Somewhere, somehow the clouds have opened up and the coffee gods have spoken. Starbucks announced that starting November 10th if you buy a holiday coffee you get another one for free.

To celebrate the return of Starbucks red holiday cups, customers who buy one holiday beverage and can get another one free* to share at participating Starbucks® stores in the U.S. and Canada November 10-14 from 2-5 p.m. Eligible holiday beverages include: Chestnut Praline Latte, Peppermint Mocha and Skinny Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Gingerbread Latte, Eggnog Latte, Teavana Joy Brewed Tea, and Spiced Sweet Cream Nariño 70 Cold Brew.

So what does this mean? Do you bring a friend to cherish in the coffee gifts you are about to receive? Or do you treat yourself to the double dose of deliciousness. Or is this all a plan to keep our attention away from the chaos that will unfold when they announce the design of their red holiday cups.
