    Re: A Defiant Coffee Shop Stares Back at Starbucks


    Nice story about the "little guy" creating a good product, nice environment and seeing an opening in the market place for something better than average.

    Most of us here would at least give the little guy a try and I look forward to the day when groups of "little guys" fund billboards that encourage supporting local product.

    The lead-in paragraph was a little weird... something about Aussie Santas saying ha, ha, ha.
    I found the story after a quick search:

    We used to say "only in America" but it appears some whacky stories are a little closer to home.

      The wife and I have just returned from a two week stay in New York City and let me tell you, even though we are "coffee snob newbies" (snewbies), we could tell that New Yorkers would drink muddy water if it came in a cup and had caffeine in it! > They dont even know what a Flat White is!


      So the majority of them think Starbucks is pretty good coffee : From personal experience, the only thing worse than NY Starbucks coffee was their service/attitude! Aussies wouldnt have to try hard to beat that particular chain store.

        This is political correctness gone too far, I reckon. Soon we wont be able to say anything at all without it being misconstrued for something sinister or derogatory.
