At the beginning of its first fiscal quarter, Caribou Coffee signed a 5-year lease for
retail space in the Ithaca Mall. Before opening the space, Caribou made various
leasehold improvements, one of which was to build a new coffee counter where
customers can watch baristas make their espresso drinks. The cost to build the
coffee counter was $12,500, which Caribou paid with cash. The counter is
