Coffee & Starbucks!
« on: August 02, 2014, 02:51:58 pm »
No matter how much I hate Starbucks coffee I frequent the place to use their free WiFi. Their coffees are pretty much crap, topped with frothed whipped cream and drizzled with caramel sauce or some horrible red stuff vaguely tasting of something 'berry'.  I can get cheaper and better quality coffee at other cafes. When at college I used to frequent Starbucks because of their free wi-fi and comfy seating areas! They also made for jolly good study spots.

If you're a Starbucks fan, what type of coffee do you drink there? Is it always a cappuccino? Or a mocha? Or do you neck a quick espresso like the Parisiennes before hoofing it out of the door?

Tried it didn't like it. I prefer Tim Hortons, cheaper and more tasty ^^

I go to Starbucks for the vanilla bean frapuccino and that's about it. I try to go to local places for my coffee (they always brew the best cups of coffee ever). I wish starbucks would offer alternative brewing methods as well.

I've never had a coffee or even a tea! It's not often I'll go to Starbucks but their WiFi is a huge benefit!

I've always gotten Caramel Frappuccinos, however I have noticed the quality really varies by the employees working there.

My cousin used to work at one and while she was there the products were really good, after she quit, not so much.
Now my mother works at one doing the same thing and obviously she isn't going to give me a lazily made product.

While I have been to many other that don't have family working there I still notice some employees care about their job more than others.

If Starbucks is very busy, instead I'll walk along to McDonalds. Their coffee is always perfectly brewed, I'll have a large cup and always get a free refill while I tool around on the wifi. Just that I hate encountering that chewing gum under their tables, ewwww. >.<

They had something called a Raspberry Iced Tea (which I don't think they have anymore hence the 'had') and it was sooo good. I tried their newest doppleganger and it was too sweet :s

I dont like coffee at all, but I do enjoy a hot chocolate. I'm not a starbucks person though but we do have a good cafe near where I live that I go to for some hot chocolate.

I don't like Starbucks either and prefer The coffee bean & Tea Leaf, as well as small private coffee shops. Starbucks's coffee is fine actually, and it really depends on what you order and the barista. The Starbucks beside my place has a good crew so the coffee is pretty good, though I rarely go there, unless I pass by while cycling or just go there to chill as a way to get out of my home, and yet be 10 minutes away from it :P

Either way, my favourite thing to order when I go to coffee shops are caramel lattes, YUM. Simple and delicious, though I do have to ask the barista to cut down on the caramel when I go to Starbucks, because the amount of it they put inside is insane, thus making it waaaaaaaay too sweet for me.
 
Apart from that, I make an americano for myself almost every morning at home, and occasionally, a cappuccino.

The drinks they make are always awful (I always order a mocha) so I grab one of the bottled mochas they have in their refrigerator which is a lot better and doesn't taste like chalk. I prefer to go to any local coffee spots around me.

I only ever have hotchocolate from there. In America they did screw up our order though since it was pretty busy so that's a problem. There queues can get insanely long sometimes. Oh and with the screwed up order I'm not Holt anymore; I'm Fernandez according to the name on the cup. :fox-:):.

THEY NEVER SPELL MY NAME RIGHT. ITS ALWAYS I INSTEAD OF Y

anyway, i don't go to starbucks often, (few times a year is the number im currently running) mostly because they are out of my price range for drinks, and the fact that everything they have has a significant amount of caffeine in it, which i do not like. THe only thing I'm willing to order is a green tea frappachino, but it still is something i only buy if i REALLY need that boost immediately.

Starbucks is my life essence
I love their mochas, frappes, iced teas, macchiatos, and lattes.
