"Grey’s Anatomy" star Patrick Dempsey tells Bon Appetit magazine that he bought Tully’s, a rival to Starbucks, because he wanted to bring the company back to life, but adds that he has a goal of becoming a "certified barista."
"I want to become a certified barista and work in the stores," he told the publication. He said he drinks about five cups of coffee a day.
"It doesn’t really affect me," he said, in reply to whether his coffee habit keeps him from sleeping. "Coffee is good for your mind — it’s basically a legalized drug. The next step is selling marijuana, of course."
Asked whether Tully’s would ever sell pot, he replied, "Great question. There’s a business model there. You could present it in a beautiful, elegant way: a Michelin-starred coffee shop where you can get marijuana."
