Starbucks used to be the shit. We'd look forward to it every time we visited Seattle. Now it's basically a multinational fast food chain, obviously. Damned shame...

I read "multidimensional". I think that would actually be more accurate!

The further away you travel from Seattle, the more the quality of Starbucks drops. In Seattle you’re still arguably drinking coffee, by the time you reach London or Budapest it’s burnt, bitter sewer water strained through a homeless man’s sock

Impossible to maintain deep quality at global scale. There’s just no way.

It still is, their cold brew coffee is better than anyone’s.

Look into their sourcing and labor practices. Best value in over-roasted coffee and diabetic shakes.

Starbucks lost its way back around 2000, when they expanded past their regional boundaries yet maintining quality control from Seattle.

I’m sure they have better tasting Iced Coffee and Cold brew. They have been innovators of many popular coffee drinks. They are consistent there.

Good coffee, but how do they produce it ruins it for me.

Shit company. Shit coffee. So many better and less-expensive choices out there.

Continually baffles me. Their coffee is burnt garbage. The only people who actually like Starbucks order triple venti whipped cream surprises with caramel and four shots of vanilla. Of course that tastes “good”.

Have to partially disagree. I’ve yet to find a more consistently delightful cup of coffee on the go than my pour over venti blonde roast. It’s fantastic.

The story…guy worked at coffee roaster goes on vacation to Italy and sees these cafes serving coffee with syrups and steamed frothed milk. Comes back and pitches the idea to his boss. Gets rejected. Quits and starts his own business. Gets so successful he ends up buying out the roaster that had rejected his idea. Twenty years later you could go to the most remote part of Washington and find a latte.

Where does the name come from? Never found that out.

Moby Dick. The cook on the ship was named Starbuck and he apparently made good coffee.

Oh shit I never knew that. Thank you!

That's where the first line of the book comes from.

Barista: Whats the name?"

Customer: "Call me Ishmael."

Barista: "Half decaf tall Moche latte for Ishmael!"

They look like anchormen. Jim Gardner should be in the pic along with Ron Burgundy.

Seriously, Google the origin of the Starbucks logo. Lifted from some kinky bored pirate drawings

My wife can't drive by a damn Starbucks without stopping

I would offer my daughters Starbucks in the cold mornings for chocolate. I noticed a vanilla creme brulee latte on ad and I decided to try it. I was instantly hooked. I'm not a coffee enthusiast but DAMN! I started out with a small and now get a large everytime! Got me hooked like the that mermaid!
