The 11,000 journalists covering the Sochi Olympics are on their way home, and most of them are severely latte-deprived. That's because McDonald's purchased the "warm beverage" rights to the Games, leaving McDonald's and vending machines as the only warm-caffeine options available. NBC, however, with 2500 employees on hand, quietly flew in its own Starbucks, staffed with 15 baristas from the nearest franchise 350 miles away. Not technically a violation of McDonald's exclusive deal, since the coffee (actually, only espresso drinks) is free, and only for NBC employees. Apparently the network knows what it takes to put on such a technically complicated production thousands of miles from home: lots of double shot caramel macchiatos. Leaving all the other journalists Starbucks-green with envy.
