Huh. I don't have a clue about your taste in coffee, but I know most
of Starbucks haters don't have my taste. I went to Starbucks a few
weeks ago after a long hiatus (in terms of years). I don't go to
coffee shops very often and if I have a choice, it's Peets. Anyway, I
had no issue with the quality of Starbuck's coffee, but I thought the
brew was too weak. I ordered regular coffee, not a frou frou
something or other with foam on it, and it wasn't even close to $5.
