On the menu at Starbucks: Wine and beer

SEATTLE — Starbucks Corp., the company that proved there's no such thing as paying too much for a cup of coffee, is expanding its experiment with two other elixirs that Americans love, wine and beer.

The company said Monday it will start selling wine, beer and "premium" foods, like small plates and hot flatbread sandwiches, at four to six stores in Atlanta and another four to six stores in Southern California by the end of the year. That builds on the company's recent announcement of the same plans for about half a dozen stores in Chicago.

Starbucks first tested the wine and beer concept at a store in its headquarters city of Seattle in October 2010. It now serves beer and wine at five stores in Seattle and one in Portland, Ore.

This will be the start of their downfall once this is done.
