I agree..Starbuck's coffee is good but not so good to justify the price. I also get plenty irritated waiting 10 minutes in line behind someone who wants a candy-ass espresso milkshake that requires a dozen different operations and all I want is a large cup of black coffee.

I do it because Universities cut exclusive deals with corperations.

Sooooo, If you're a caffine addicted college student, they pretty much have you by the balls..

It's either the 4 dollar cup of designer coffee

or ....
  • Buy the vending machine swill that tastes like coffee flavored gasoline
or ....
  • Lug your own java in a thermos..which in an already overstuffed backpack is a pain in the ass not to mention risky...ever have a slightly loose thermos lid leak all over a semesters worth of class notes?
Psst...Money $aving tip: if you flirt it up with the shy but cute Chinese exchange student who works from 3 to 10pm M-F she will let you refill for free.

If all you drink is good old fashioned coffee (black, cream and sugar, etc), Starbucks is pretty comparably priced to any other place. It costs $2 for the Venti (yeah...the names are stupid) which is probably a 20 oz coffee. That's not bad at all. It's when you start getting into the triple soy chai carmel latte whatever drinks that the price gets steep.

I had only been to Starbucks once before I started working for them.
I looked at the menu and didn't have a clue what was on it.
After working there for 4 years I still don't see the attraction. I would never go there
for a cup of coffee. Just because I think there are other places that have better coffee.
They are a good company to work for if you have the right manager.

It's just to hard to be a assistant manager for a manager that doesn't uphold the standard that the company expects.

If I'm running too late to make my own (or my silly husband forgot to get more coffee), I'll drop off at one by work. Drive through and get a venti Americano 5 shot coffee. Power drink

Coffee is good. We have a starbucks machine at work. At least now I can get the coffee w/o having to go to the store!

I think Peet's is far far better personally..

Starbucks, like most chains, has some consistency. I brew my own lattes at home, but if I'm out and about, I'll stop in for a tall double, half-caf, non-fat, no foam latte after 3...but it happens about once every three months.

Munky, if you're nice, you can cut in front of me in line...

Preferred:

Better tasting, not as bitter, and always the right temperature when I get it in the drive through so I don't have to wait a half hour before I scald my tongue

I used to love Starbucks when I could afford it more. There was one at our local grocery store at the time and some of the shopping carts had a spot for your coffee cup. Then our daughter joined the family and I couldn't have hot coffee in her reach.

Now the only time I go there is for a treat, or if I have a gift card.

Starbucks coffee is actually no more expensive than most other places. It's the specialty drinks that are pricy. Love Starbucks.

I'm okay with starbucks. I probably go once every couple months. There is way better coffee out there depending on where you live. I used to spend some time in Colombia for business and they had the best coffee. I'd probably drink a gallon a day. I had a cuban breakfast place down in miami that could make a phenomenal cup of coffee. But starbucks beats the crap out of convenience stores/gas stations.
