Nowadays, it's hard to go down the street with out facing the beckoning call of the Starbucks (SBUX) siren. 

Our caffeine needs aren't going anywhere, and that was made clear in the coffee giant's most recent earnings report. 

Starbucks' days as a growth stock may be behind it, but with its reputation as a high value stock, it's unlikely that investor interest will wane. 

Now that we've talked the ticker, what about the company? Sit back with that pumpkin spiced latte (we don't judge here) and take a trip back to when finding a Starbucks every block wasn't a given. As it turns out, building a coffee powerhouse is a tall order.
