A Monroe County farmer, who asked not to be identified, was doing some tractor work on Monday afternoon when he decided to drive through the new Starbucks to see what the fuss was all about. The farmer ordered a black coffee and said he was surprised when, given Starbucks’ expensive reputation, it only cost him about $2.60. “Tastes like coffee,” said the farmer. He said the Starbucks staff was friendly to their tractor-driving customer. “I like your ride,” one barista told the farmer, who was driving his 1966 Ford 5000 with its 50 horsepower motor. The Forsyth Starbucks opened last Thursday, Oct. 14 but it closes daily at 4 p.m. (Photo/Will Davis)
