The excitement on Garima Bajaj’s face is evident as she finally “makes it” to Delhi’s first* Starbucks store after dropping out of the queue twice before.
It’s been two months since the first Starbucks store opened in Delhi’s Connaught Place. The euphoria is far from over, judging by the queues outside.
“I really like the visual appeal of the place. I am used to the simple arrangement in Barista, CCD (Café Coffee Day) or Costa. When you enter (the store), it’s very impactful,” said Pawni Singh, a Delhi University student.
