Forever 21 founders Do Won Chang and Jin Sook Chang have declared their coffee preference, and it's not for LA-based powerhouse Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. Nope, the Changs enjoy Starbucks—so much so that they've installed their very own Starbucks store within the confines of their massive new corporate headquarters in Lincoln Heights.
