blacksharpiemarker: I work within the coffee industry, and it's no secret that Starbucks serves some of the lowest grade bean blends available. I can't believe there's so many people that actually appreciate what they serve as "premium" coffee.Enjoy your price increase, idiots./You wouldn't know a proper coffee from wet water out of a shoe...

Cerebral Infarktion: There are so many better drugs out there than caffeine
blacksharpiemarker: The My Little Pony Killer: blacksharpiemarker: /You wouldn't know a proper coffee from wet water out of a shoe...Actually, I do, I just also recognize friendly service vs. somebody who will act like a douchebag over me ordering the "wrong" way.Sorry, I must come across as very hateful, but what I actually hate is corporations using clever marketing tactics to fool consumers into buying low quality product, then they become accustomed to the product, and quality begins to suffer.This stands especially true in the North American market, where lower cost (lower quality) bean blends are formulated to satisfy "unique" consumer tastes and lower price expectations.Luckily, I'm not on the service side of the industry because it would only frustrate me further.

Voiceofreason01: If all you want is a regular cup of black coffee Starbucks is excellent and has pretty reasonable prices
