Chai tea and coffee for everyone!

President Barack Obama visited a local coffee shop on his way out of Kansas City, Mo. Wednesday and gave patrons of Parkville Coffee a hump day treat — a round of beverages, on POTUS.

“It’s not that often the President buys you a cup of coffee,” President Obama said, according to a pool report.

President Obama filled the patrons’ orders of chai tea and coffee, though he personally opted for an iced tea. When an employee offered him a tea flavored with lavender, the President said, “I’m not confident enough to order that,” per the pool.

The President spent the day in Kansas City, which is about a 16-minute drive from Parkville, to talk about the economy, before later departing back to Washington, D.C.
