    eh...Starbucks is the Mcdonald's of the coffee world. I like their coffee but that's about it. And I never sit down to drink it at the store either.

    Re: Starbucks

    I agree beans are burnt and not roasted. I brew at home with my Capresso and buy local fresh roasted beans, so I can definitely say that I am spoiled. I only drink decaf though, as I am trying to cut out caffeine as it gives me the shakes and when working on 440V systems and higher, that can not always be a good thing.

    The juries are still out on whether caffeine is good or bad for the body (a recent study said that it helped fight cancer and to give a competitive edge and boost in sporting competitions as well as stimulating brain activity). It just depends on the report you read today.

    My coffee snob friends can't forgive me for it, but I love Starbucks! Especially now that the holiday drinks are here. Mmm, gingerbread latte.

    Re: Starbucks

    Great pic gilgamesh

    here's an interesting read. I didn't get this drink, just read about it

    The Most Expensive Drink at Starbucks
    I recently received a coupon to get any drink I wanted at Starbucks. They do this if something goes awry with a previous experience as a nice gesture.
    I decided to use the coupon for an experiment: What is the most expensive drink I can order?
    Luckily (or unluckily), I happen to live in Manhattan and that makes Starbucks prices expensive. Yup, they fluctuate from region to region (and even store to store). The first thing I did was call a dozen Starbucks stores around Manhattan to see who had the most expensive prices. I used my regular order of a tall soy chai to make the comparison. I figured a Starbucks in Times Square would be more expensive than where I live on the Upper East. It’s even a cool idea itself to create a Starbucks heatmap of Manhattan.
    Boringly, most Starbucks in Manhattan (no matter where located) rang my drink up at $4.23.
    My next problem was I needed to find out the most expensive stuff to put in a drink. I called up my sister Lauren who happens to work at a Starbucks. She told me that I definitely need to go with the venti white mocha and to add as many shots as possible.
    I then went to Starbucks to make my drink. I told the barista that I was there as part of a contest to make the most expensive drink. She played along, trying to squeeze as much as we could into a venti cup. She thoroughly enjoyed the problem at hand (although other customers on line were getting peeved).
    And the ultimate yuppified result: A 13 shot venti soy hazelnut vanilla cinnamon white mocha with extra white mocha and caramel. It cost a total of $13.76 (with tax).
    After she rang up the amount, I then presented her the coupon (which I didn’t reveal beforehand). She laughed, comped the entire drink, and I left.
    At first taste, it tasted just like a shot. The 13 shots in it were just too strong. However, when I got home, I mixed it more with a spoon and it became drinkable (even enjoyable to my girlfriend). It was very sweet and I’m still shaking a bit. I didn’t attempt to drink the entire thing since I’d like to sleep tonight.


    Here is a shot of the receipt (note: 2 shots come with the drink, so she only rang up 11):

    Re: Starbucks

    Interesting story. I'm glad I wasn't in line behind that person. I would have been pissed. It would not have been a good scene. Did they happen to remember to tip the person for the drinks? Sounds like she went above and beyond.

    I don't actually go to Starbucks, well maybe a few times a year.
    Had I had been behind that person, I would have been LIVID.
