Starbucks location in Düsseldorf
Article on expatica.com about Starbucks in Germany (I knew that Starbucks at first had a German partner, but didn't know that it was KarstadtQuelle AG. Starbucks opened in Germany as a joint venture with KarstadtQuelle AG, but after Karstadt experienced financial problems, Starbucks took it over entirely).

Café Crème: Popular in Switzerland and becoming more so in the U.S., café crème is brewed in a similar manner to normal espresso but at a faster pace and for a larger portion. Classic espresso brews about 1 to 1.5 ounces in 28 seconds, while café crème brews 5 ounces or more in 28 to 30 seconds. This is achieved by moving the grind fineness dial to the coarsest setting, to allow for more flow-through into the cup.
