Welcome to the Lifestyles of the Springfield Rich & Famous… errr… well, to a site writing about a new rich people expansion in TSTO. In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where did THAT Come From?
So the Springfield Heights expansion brought us lots of new items with confounding leveling up of buildings, real estate values and tap-tap-tappery. Of course, it also brought lots of new stuff to find in the Best. Show. Ever. I’m sure by now we’ve all spent lots of precious time tapping away at the various tasked buildings of Springfield Heights. Of the six buildings earning Springfield Heights currency, the Coffee Shop is the second building and not too horrible with its two minute tasks to earn lattes. It certainly resembles a famous coffee chain you may be familiar with but when and where does it appear in the show? Yay for having a blogging job that involves letting you know!
So first up, I have to admit that Coffee Shop is not the most original name for a place. You could get all confused and end up thinking about the Coffee Shop attached to Barney‘s Bowlarama in “Life on the Fast Lane” (S1:E9), the Squidport Coffee Shop in “New Kids on the Blecch” (S12:E14) or the Springfield Mall Coffee Shop in “Postcards From the Wedge”(S21:E14).
But it’s not my job to be all super-nerdy and lead you astray. Well… one of those is so let’s head to “The Blue and the Gray” (S22:E13) to find our new building. Marge discovers that her natural hair color is now gray and fears that Homer is cheating on her. Homer is actually just being a wingman for Moe but Marge doesn’t know it. She goes for coffee with her sisters to vent about how she’s treated with her natural hairdo.
Yup… our new building in all its glory. Although the store name has changed at the very end of “Waiting for Duffman” (S26:E17), this next shop and logo looks very similar. I kinda wish this was the shop we’d gotten in Springfield Heights… oh yeah!
Of course, this one is making fun of a different coffee superchain but maybe all of these buildings could be part of the same corporate conglomerate? We all know a certain coffee place does have stores all over. Heck, remember “Simpson Tide” (S9:E19) when an entire part of the Springfield Mall was taken over by them? Well, there’s your origin my friends. What’s your opinion of the coffee shop? Got a favorite expensive coffee you like to drink and pretend to make over and over every two minutes? Sound off and I hope you’re all doing your thing with or without those green aprons.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
