Due to sponsorship rules at the Olympics, journalists who have traveled to Sochi have been living on coffee made by McDonald’s.

Except for those who work for NBC.

According to the Wall Street Journal, more than a dozen employees of Starbucks have been flown to the Olympics to keep the television crew caffeinated during the Games, much to the jealousy of other journalists.

According to the Journal, the Starbucks is set up near the NBC cafeteria and is only accessible to NBC employees — and those who convince a friend who works for NBC to sneak them a cup.
