  • STARBUCKS - and coffee in general

    I OCCASIONALLY will get a cup of coffee from Starbucks, but generally I reject the "snob appeal" of paying too much for "burnt" tasting coffee, and prefer to get my coffee at home from our K-cup maker, one cup at a time, and none of those foofoo coffees flavored with French vanilla creame de menthe rosehip petal blossoms and stuff.

      Can't stand Starbucks. Always tastes burnt to me.

        I like each cup of coffee to be freshly made!

          I need an "other" option.

          Somebody gave me a $10 gift card to Starbucks once and I got the allotted 2 cups of coffee and have a bit of change left over on the card.

          Never bought coffee (or anything else) there before, and haven't since.

          I don't like strong coffee, and almost any coffee that is made outside of my kitchen is too strong for my liking.

          I drink more coffee at home since we were given a Keurig machine about 3 years ago than I ever did before, but I dilute the coffee with hot water, and then reuse the little cups a second time.

          My new favourite flavour is Jamaica Me Crazy by Wolfgang Puck. Not too strong a brew, with a hint of coconut and a bit of ginger. I also love Cinnamon Pastry and Gingerbread and Pumpkin Spice. Can you tell I like the spicy ones?

          AND I know for a fact that CP used to drink Gloria Jean's Butter Toffee Coffee! Because he told me about it and I got some!

            I love my Keurig machine!

            Other than coffee, I like using it to make hot apple cider.

              That's TRUE! But I've gone back to "Eight O'Clock" and Maxwell House.

                  I used to spend a lot of time in coffee houses (usually playing chess). On principle I usually preferred locally owned ones because I don't like the burnt taste of Starbucks but I'm really not all that picky. To me, coffee is coffee...

                    Why on earth would anyone drink coffee, might as well drink hot dirty water.

                      My situation is a bit unique. I can only drink decaf coffee due to hypertension and afib. That said, I almost never get coffee at restaurants because people forget to give me decaf and sometimes get me regular coffee instead. If I can get the coffee myself from a station where you can pour your own drinks then I usually get it.

                      I think Starbucks sucks. I'd rather have McDonald's coffee.

Then do it, without hesitation, and speak the truth as you see it. But with kindness. With humility. Without hypocrisy."

                        Drinking coffee is a very comforting sensation that I can't describe.

                          I do not visit Starbucks because of their political activism - supporting homosexual marriage and gun control. I don't often buy espresso because of the cost. Also when I do buy an espresso there are better places, selling better coffee for less cost.

                          Just to match some other posts some misc. info. I usually make my coffee one cup at a time. Grind my own beans one cup at a time. I like strong unsweetened coffee. My beans come from Costco.

                          ETA: I could not vote in the poll since none of the options matched my situation.

                              I can't stand Starbucks coffee. I think it tastes absolutely vile compared to most other cafes
