Homeland Security officials appear to have an affinity for Starbucks.

NBC-4 Washington reports that Homeland Security employees spent $30,000 at the coffee chain in 2013.

The drinks were bought with so-called purchase cards.

At a Starbucks in Alameda, Calif., agency employees spent $12,000.

A DHS spokesman said the purchases followed protocol.
