Starbucks considers plan to sell beer and wine.

Starbucks may soon expand its menu to include beer and wine.

The beverage and food menus would expand and the atmosphere would become less "coffee shop" and more "cafe."

The company has already added beer and wine to one of its Seattle locations, an experiment that could go nationwide.

Analysts say what Starbucks really wants is a more neighborhood feel, to be a local after-work hangout.

Starbucks says it is responding to customers who want a more relaxing place in the evening.

Starbucks currently does 70 percent of its business before 2 o'clock in the afternoon.
