Starbucks Goes Blonde

27 posts in this topic

I'm not much of a coffee connoisseur, but there is one within walking distance and I pretty much live on it. I would be curious to know if there are any alternatives to coffee houses that I might try in order to gage the difference.

Then again when I say 'coffee' I mean sweet syrupy type drinks loaded with sugar and a pinch of coffee.

It seems as though they are kind of the McDonald's of coffee as in they have a new flavor of the month .

On a side note I think their instant VIA stuff is passable for the lazy tired morning coffee drinker.

That's a whole different ballgame: my Saturday morning ritual includes a stop at Starbucks for a Mocha (grande, one pump, nonfat, no whip... sometimes they even get it right!). And I agree that VIA is an acceptable "coffee of last resort" when the next option is McDonald's <shudder>.
