Starbucks yuck!

October 28th, 2006 at 09:21 am

I agree with Tina and Lux.

We went there for coffee a couple of weeks ago. I wanted my cheap gas station coffee but starbucks is on the way. Yuck. The stuff tastes bad.

I can't say much about their business practises. What I can say is when we go get a coffee at work there is a starbucks about the same distance from the office as the Second Cup and Timmies. We each have our favourite between those two but no one ever even suggests going to Starbucks.

Strangely I don't know anyone who is a big starbucks fan. Maybe folks go there in secret?

    Funny - I have never even been in a Starbucks!

    I did buy a nice big jug of one of their syrups at the scratch n' dent store for $2.00 once. That was pretty tasty.

    heheheheheeeee! i've started a revolution! Big Grin

    starbucks does the ambiance thing very well, and they have a lot of locations inside chain bookstores (big non-local business pairing up w/ big non-local business, go figure!).

    my biggest gripe with them other than their coffee are their desserts: how can a triple chocolate jet-black *anything* taste like nothing but flour? how is it possible, i ask? such a let down.

    We have three contenders here...Starbucks, Human Bean and Dutch Brothers....Dutch Bros is usually the guy fav- the coffee is a little more bitter...Human Bean is usually the girl fav...and Starbucks draws a mix.

    Ive tried all three and at alll three Ive had coffee I like and coffee I didnt like. I think it depends on the brista, personally.

    I used to be a $2.50 a day mocha-holic...but these days, I brew my own (folgers) and a little vanilla cremer and I am a happy camper. ...and I save a bundle!!

    There is a Starbucks right by the restaurtant where I work, and I used to buy coffee there a few times a week. Then I realized how much money I was pouring into it. Ugh. They have a few really tasty things, but they're usually frosty and not-coffee like. When it comes to just plain coffee, I think thiers is terrible, and now I make my own maxwell house and like Ray, I buy flavored creamers to keep it fun and tasty! I had my coffee challenge earlier this month, and it's faired well... $3 for a can of coffee, $2 for a small thing of creamer... even if I have to buy a couple things of creamer in a month, it beats spending almost $4 on each drink! Sheesh!

    No Starbucks for me!

    However, I do agree about the ambience. I'd love to have that kind of atmosphere... in my own house some day!
