One difference between this Starbucks and the others in the area is the emphasis on the chain's Starbucks Reserve brand. This refers to limited-offer coffees that the chain has deemed "exceptional." You can order a cup of these Starbucks Reserve coffees brewed in the ultra-fancy, ultra-precise one-cup-at-a-time Clover machine.

This is the first area Starbucks to have a Clover, though not the first St. Louis coffeeshop: The downtown Clayton location of Kaldi's Coffee Roasting Company (187 Carondolet Plaza, Clayton; 314-726-2900) installed one a few years ago, before Starbucks purchased the Clover company.
