Can't snark at this, although yah, their coffee isn't that great.

Would be nice to open this up to teachers too, but then it becomes a slippery slope.

The Starbucks in one of my hospital buildings has been giving away free coffee to the health care staff for a good portion of the pandemic.  They just set up a free, self-serve coffee area with all their varieties of coffees and the fixins.  It was really nice gesture by them.

All caffeine, no taste.

FLMountainMan: All caffeine, no taste.


Actually, the more you roast the beans, the less caffeine the coffee has.

Light roast = more caffeine

Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

That's by volume, because more roasting puffs the beans up.  If you weight the coffee out, the caffeine level is basically the same.

/Fourbucks coffee is garbage and that doesn't matter because people buy it for the sugar/caffeine.

Last few times I've been to a Starbucks and attempted to order decaf coffee, they only had decaf "Americano" so I said no thanks and walked out.

I think Starbucks makes a decent cup of Joe. I was always put off by the hipster vibe and the price that comes along with it. But for free it's good. Besides, most people go for some double mocha frappe choco whipped creme latte and can't tell what the coffee tastes like anyway; only 1300 calories.

Can't remember last time I had Starbucks.  I never get frou-frou coffee anyway,  sometimes a shot of espresso and milk.  More likely, I'll have a cup of tea or some French press at home.

But good on a wealthy corporation for using their powers for good instead of evil.

I like their Breakfast blend beans and Cafe Verona dark roast.  I like Peet's blend more.

I do like a Starbucks mocha with an extra shot for the sugar and caffeine, or a quad espresso, if I have to go.

The founders of Starbucks learned everything about roasting from Alfred Peet. Then, after a new owner or two, they became the McDonald's of coffee, and the quality took a turn for the worse.

I do still notice similarities between Peet's House Blend and Starbucks House Blend, if I ever buy a bag of either. I prefer medium roasts, though (and not what Starbucks considers "medium").
