Do you like Starbucks coffee? I've been addicted to it for some time now

They've got the worst coffee I've ever had. I gave them a chance.. been to about 5 different stores and tried different coffees. They're just consistantly horrible, and expensive. I drink mostly straight black, espresso/cappuccino though, so I'm actually able to taste the coffee. If you add tons of milk/syrup/sugar, just about anything will taste good.

I don't like coffee, but I am all about the Tall Soy No Water Chai Tea Latte. Nummies.

Have a nice day,
Kelly

Carefully, but full of might.

Not particularly. It is a lot better than some places I've gone to, however.

I don't know if all stores are doing it, but I went to one in Dallas where you could substitute organic milk if you wanted; it was more expensive but worth it I think.

I just like the taste of their coffee, I don't know why, lol. It's one of the few things I splurge on.

I've only been to Starbucks twice in my life, but I never tried their coffee.

I hate coffee. I don't care how you flavor it or if it's hot or cold -- it's all bad.

re: Starbucks?


I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE coffee. I find that Starbucks is allright, I think they are HIGHLY overpriced though. There are few local coffeehouses around here that I go to when I buy coffee. I wont buy coffee just anywhere generally, as there is some REALLY BAD coffee out there. I buy higher quality beans and grind them and make my own coffee at home which is the most economical way to get really good coffee.

I went to Starbucks today and had a LIGHT Mocha Frappacino and was really disappointed. I have never had a LIGHT frappacino before and probably never will again. Not worth the $3.75 or whatever I paid for it that is for sure.

that makes me feel better about it then. I don't have a starbucks near me, but some of the things they offer look kinda good. Especially any of the coffee having to do with chocolate
- You might like mochas; they have good hot chocolate too.

- Yes it is overpriced, but I've been to several other coffeeshops such as Coffee Beanery and CC's and really the prices are about the same as Starbucks for all the lattes and frozen drinks.
I can't drink bad coffee; the coffee where I work is so bad I won't drink it no matter how tired I am, lol.
