  • Raising the game?

    http://www.smh.com.au/news/opinion/if-they-cant-make-it-here/2006/12/26/1166895296886.html


    I particularly enjoyed this:

    "Starbucks can be thanked for raising the game. McDonalds has introduced a premium roast coffee, even 7-Eleven stores have upped their game, but the real coffee war is between Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks. This could be termed the war between coffee on the go and coffee savoured."

    and...

    "Starbucks customers want to stand out from the crowd. Dunkin Donuts people cant see any reason why they should pay $4 for a coffee. They see it as pretentious and trendy, while Starbuckers think Dunkin Donuts stores are austere and unoriginal."

    Wonder what those Dunkins customers would think of a bunch of mad Australians who will joyfully a few $k on espresso machines and grinders, and will sit on a computer for hours trying to snare a share in a big pile of green coffee beans to roast at home, having spent countless hours searching for, and tweaking, the perfect method for said roasting....

    Pretentious? Nah, were coffeeSNOBS!!

    Perhaps the viewpoint/attitude/existance of such mad Australians should be brought to the attention of the author of the article as a look into the world of real coffee. ;D
