47 is the new 42: I finally tried some Starbucks coffee (not one of their other drinks, just regular black coffee) and holy shiat. How can anybody like that crap?
Mangoose: Starbucks, at least here, have had their calorie information on everything (food and drinks) for a long while. Hasn't really changed anything.
alltim: Starbucks bothers me because they've started setting up shop across the street from local high schools (in Toronto), knowing that kids will buy their trillion-calorie frappuccinos every farking day.
quizzical: They've had the calories posted here in California for awhile. Learning that a single slice of their banana bread has 490 dropped my Starbucks snack habit from twice a week to once a month.
mjohnson71: I broke my wife's Starbucks addiction by printing out a pdf from their website showing the calorie counts. Saved me tons of money as she now only gets the occasional Mocha Light Frappucino on the weekend. A grande is just 130 calories.
420Gabriel: Fatties do not care what they eat or drink and showing them the calories is not going to change that.
Dragonblink: Apparently calorie counts only affect buying habits when people are spoon-fed the information straight into their eyeballs.

How can anybody like that crap?Quality will depend on locality. Their beans aren't particularly amazing, but they are pretty solid in and of themselves. Your local Starbucks staff's knowledge of brewing and regularity of refreshing out the carafes has more to do with the typical poor quality than the coffee itself. One of our local Starbucks, a stand alone, has consistently good black coffee. Another, which is attached to our office complex and staffed by high schoolers, is almost always terrible. It is the same blend of coffee.Same reason why people like/hate pizza chains. It's all about the local employees.
