You can't call yourselves capitalists if you don't have Starbucks

Now there's a familar sign, comrade.

A tall filter coffee costs 75 rubles, or about $2.92. The most expensive item on the menu is a venti mocha, for 230 rubles, or about $8.96. A venti mocha at Starbucks in New York costs $4.71.

Moscow has one coffeehouse for every 3,187 people. New York has one for every 365 people, and Paris one for every 126.

Wow. Somehow I know all those caramel fraps I consumed must have helped fund these Russian coffee houses. bwahahaha
