    Always has to be coffee at breakfast, but several times a week I'll drink some tea at lunch, too. Today was such a day-Brodie's Scottish Breakfast tea.

    Read a sign on the front door of a little coffee shop last week said, "Friends don't let friends drink Starbucks". Normally I'd agree as I don't much like supporting big corporate outfits. However.... out this morning and had craving flung on me. I had to actually pull into the drive though at local Starbucks for a large dark roast. Please don't think bad of me. :(

    Good apple-harvest tea. Natural flavor.

    Hello CLS,

    I hope you are well this cool evening.

    Those large corporations are made up of a lot of regular folks. Say what you will about Starbucks, but they give full benefits - medical, dental, vision, life insurance, 401K, and stock options to even their part time workers. And, their Italian Roast is excellent!

    Just my two cents.....

    Yes, say what you will about Starbucks but their effect in this neck of the woods has been to up the game of all the other coffee shops in order to compete. Overall it is much easier to get a good cuppa here than before Starbucks and that is what competition will do for a market.
