Prices should be bargain basement there. Coffee is grown right across the street. Imagine, a Grande for 50 cents! Sweet!

They might actually be forced to sell a decent cup of coffee down there.  Their usual burnt cardboard flavored pap isn't going to cut it.  Maybe the experience will spread to the rest of the chain.

But I doubt it.

Just gonna throw this one out there: I actually like some of Starbucks' stuff sometimes. Maybe it's just for the sake of changing it up from time to time.

That said, I'm not sure how a Starbucks is expected to thrive in a place like Colombia.

Starbucks is opening in Colombia for the sake of the tourists.  The locals won't support Starbucks.

I don't get the hate for Starbucks.  Okay, they have way too many locations, etc.  But, the coffee is pretty good.  This whole "burnt cardboard flavored pap" is just a bunch of pretentious hipster bullshiat.

Besides, why would you go to Starbucks to get black coffee?  You get something custom, like a frap or a latte.  If you want to make generic black coffee, get yourself a goddamn coffee machine and grind the shiat yourself!
