    Starbucks

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Would like to get forum members opinion of Starbucks chain.
    Is the coffee good or bad?
    Something you avoid or look forward to?

    Re: Starbucks

    The best thing about Starbucks is their food :) While there are always store to store variations, quite frankly the coffees nothing to write home about. Their market is the masses, not those who are interested in a particularly good coffee. Do a coffesnobs site search on starbucks and youll find a number of older posts about them.

    Hi Sigmate and welcome....Dazzle$$$ has been done to death here and you will fine that if you employ the search button up yonder ^^^^ using the term starbucks, youll get a multitude of hits...No need to rehash old stuff ;)

    Needless to say, most CSers would sooner clean out the bottom of the Cocky cage with their tongues than go near Starbucks.

    Greg Pullman & 2muchcoffeeman : Thanks for the welcome!

    Kind of getting my way around the forums.
    Hehe . . so much to read and oh so little time.

    Im actually partial to their tea range (chai / green tea) but not a big fan of their coffees.
