Starbucks is a chain coffee shop known around the world. The company was named after a character in Herman Melville's Moby Dick. Its logo is a "twin-tailed mermaid, or siren as she's known in Greek mythology." The green color represents the college of the founders.

Starbucks started as a coffee and equipment seller before transforming into the cafes we know and love today. It quickly became a part of popular culture, resulting in many parodies in comics, music, movies, and television. Parodies of the iconic green logo can be found on everything from children's toys to t-shirts, and authentic Starbucks branded items, including Christmas tree ornaments and reusable cups, often become collector's items.

Did you know? Starbucks has a so-called "secret menu" created by clever baristas and discerning customers. Many of these "secret" beverages have cute names, like "the Cinderella," but odds are your local barista wouldn't know these drinks by name. Instead, you can order from the "secret menu" by describing a beverage not otherwise offered. "The Cinderella," for example, is a combination of white chocolate mocha and pumpkin spice, so named because Cinderella purportedly rode in a carriage that had once been a pumpkin.

Draw another long, curved line above and parallel to the first, but notice that it doesn't meet the sides of the lid. Then, shade small vertical ovals all around the lid's base.
