Guangzhou, China

The elegant three-story Starbucks in Guangzhou, China, wouldn’t be out of place in New Orleans, with its wide columned terraces and lazily spinning ceiling fans that make you want to sit with your sweetie all afternoon. The first floor is dedicated to crafting coffee beverages, while the second floor is a relaxing space to spend time together. Order up a green tea latte topped with a delicate pink-hued peach foam and a slice of the lava chocolate cake decorated with two overlapping hearts for the perfect sweet snack for two. Here’s what your coffee order reveals about you.
