    Don't like coffee but I like their tea.... about 2 or 3 times a year. :LOL: I'll stick to my Diet Coke in the morning thanks - no $4 cups of coffee for me. :roll:

    I'm just mad that I'm not in on the profits. How much does it cost to produce a cup of coffee? Especially when you buy in mass quantities?

    Even with overhead...they must be marking the price up 5000%.

    That's what makes me sick.

    I can't stand coffee either, but I live in a town with a population of 1000, so I can't exactly sympathize with the whole Starbucks thing! Closest thing we have to that is a bunch of old guys sitting around the restaraunt/bar uptown shootin the sh*t every morning while drinking thier coffee!

    Very similar to Starbucks, just make it a younger crowd and charge them a lot more and you've got the same thing! :lol:

    I'm surprised... I thought this was the land of coffee drinkers!

    I like their Cafe Mocha. But I'm planning to quit drinking coffee and tea (I already have gotten out of my tea addiction:)). Why spoil the health when we have fresh water!

    About the price; if the customer is willing to pay, why not? I would not blame Starbucks for their price. Dunkin Donuts is following the suit with their versions of coolatas and what not! :)

    yes and they are all going to hell for it. :lol:


    but seriously, it seems to me more of a prevalent addiction than other "worse" things around these parts. plus, in this neighborhood, its a "unemployed mommy came from the gym to get her oh so healthy latte" fest out here. im sick of it. i hope they get run over in the parking lot.

    Do you think it is the weather? During freezing winter mornings, what do you usually have instead of coffee/tea?
