I like their growth story as well. There is a caribou in my office building and they constantly have a line of customers, even with an Einstein Bagels next door that sells cheaper coffee.

I bought some shares when it dipped below 9, partically to ride the growth wave, and partially to offset my 2 cups a day habit.

One thing that I dont' like as an investor is that they have twice offered free coffee for a week if you buy a $25 gift card. As a consumer it was great, 10 free cups, but as an investor, It doesn't make a lot of sense.
