Obviously you two didn't need the caffeine too bad, eh? Besides, a nice walk is good for you.
How do you not notice that your missing your coffee on the 3 mile walk back to your house???
YDI for choosing Starbucks. Personally, I'd rather drink a cup shit. I suppose they're similar in taste, though.
coffee pretty much costs the same everywhere here in Australia be it from maccas or Starbucks, michels pattiserie or Gloria jeans. Out of all those, Starbucks tastes the most burnt and bitter. Could be a different coffee bean used here but pretty much everyone I have ever spoken to would never choose Starbucks if another option was available.
Sadly a lot of baristas at Starbucks don't really give a crap if they follow the recipe cards or allow your espresso shot to sit on the counter to go bad. To most of them it's a job, not a calling. I worked at one of them and of the six girls only two of them actually followed the way the drinks are supposed to be made. So I can see where you'd find Starbucks disgusting. But in most places we get to choose between fast food coffee, Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts coffee. Plus, there are a lot of drinks Starbucks makes that are delicious.
First off, Starbucks specifically goes for the rustic taste in their coffee. Don't like it? Duh, don't drink it. Second, I've tried Starbucks in a variety of cities around the world, and I am positive that the further you get from Seattle, the worse Starbucks is. It's not so bad in big cities such as New York or London, but the best Starbucks you can get is in Seattle, hands down.
She's right. Coffee in the US is disgusting, in the UK, it's not much better. There used to be a few Starbucks' in Sydney, but they all went out of business because local coffee shops were so much better. I've often thought I'd like to start some coffee shops in the US where the coffee actually tastes good and the baristas actually know how to use espresso machines and froth the milk properly, not sure if it'd catch on.
Idk bout coffee but my parents love it they always have that as first choice...idk if itll apply to the coffees also but whenever i get hot choco its amazing around my house but if i was to go to say florida, DC, Boston, or Penn, they all tasted different >_<
I've been to a few countries and coffeewise Starbucks is dreadful. The simpletons remark was a bit much but I agree coffee in Australia is becoming a huge market. I myself prefer dibella, worked as a barista while studying so I am pretty certain the brand also makes a difference. Anyone can be trained to make good coffee but not all brands are good!
