Can you name 3 Starbucks stores in the U.S. with a manual espresso machine?

Can you name 3 Starbucks stores in the U.S. with a manual espresso machine?

This store opened up as just “15th Avenue Coffee and Tea” in July 2009, and later was rebranded as just a “Starbucks” in January 2011. When it opened as “15th Avenue Coffee and Tea,” it was considered an experimental store, and so got a manual espresso machine. It briefly had a La Marzocco, and then Starbucks pulled that machine out and replaced it with a Nuova Simonelli espresso machine. Both are manual espresso machines. To be honest, I don’t know a lot about the Nuova Simonelli, but I’ve repeatedly heard that it is a little easier to use than a La Marzocco – a little easier to control the quality of the shots.
