One thing air travelers need is coffee.
And many airports have Starbucks coffee shops where weary fliers can grab an espresso drink between flights.
Where – and when – did that trend start?
You guessed it: Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, where HMSHost and Starbucks Coffee Company just celebrated the 25th anniversary of not only the first airport Starbucks, but the first Starbucks licensed location, which opened in 1991.
