Starbucks finally gets its head out of its coffee grounds.

We’re having, as you might have heard once or twice, a heckuva drought out here in the West.

So Starbucks has decided it’s maybe not a great idea to be using California water for its Ethos bottled water brand.

Mother Jones magazine reported a little more than a week ago that the coffee chain was using private springs up near the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Starbucks said today: yeah, no — we’ll use Pennsylvania water for at least the next six months.
