    Starbucks is the Best Coffee if------------------

    Yes, it's the Babylon Bee again.
    Sorry, I find more truth hidden in humor here than anywhere else.
    As for this article, it sums up my opinion of Starbucks perfectly.
    So I chortled........nay.......I guffawed..........maybe even laughed out loud momentarily.


    This stuff smells like hot road tar
    There are only two options as I see it.
    Either I'm right, or there is a sinister
    conspiracy to conceal the fact that I'm right.

    Thanks for posting that as I needed a good guffaw today.

    In this area Starbucks coffee is too acidic. It does depend on who makes it and the ingredients obviously.

    I do not have a top end coffee palate . I brew mine from commercially available as to what is in the store or, heaven forbid, INSTANT COFFFEE! Oh, the humanity!!

    I like it with creamer and sweetener. No sugar. I just cannot get into high priced coffee very much. On occasion I do go and sin. But it is coffee from....gasp... a gas station.
    That is also rare. Qwik Trip has various blends. Gotta have the vanilla bean flavor in the cup. The mocha the merrier.

    Absolutely right.

    Give me a choice between Starbucks and a cup of generic coffee from my own coffee maker, and the choice is clear - even if I were forced to pay the same price. Their coffee just doesn't taste good to me. And I felt that way even before their CEO said he'd rather hire an illegal immigrant over a veteran.

    Not a coffee aficionado by any stretch of the imagination (I drink Folger's at the house- a single cup when I get up in the morning- and keep some Folger's instant in the travel bag) but even I don't think Starbuck's coffee is fittin' to drink.

    There's a couple local coffee shops that I frequent that will put them to shame- both in quality and price. One place donates all profits to a local charity and the other place is ran by a local boy and his wife. He just got out of the Army after a dozen or so years (about half of that was spent deployed somewhere in the world, from what I've gathered) and came home. I alternate between the two for my weekly large hazelnut latte.

    Not a coffee snob myself, but I just can not stand their coffee. To me, it smells like 6000 mile drained oil filtered through an unwashed jock strap. I have had truck stop coffee that put Starbucks to shame.

    For me, I'll take a good Maxwell House medium blend through a coffee maker. Sometimes I will use this as the base, and add it to Swiss Miss hot chocolate mix. Dang, is that good. Sometimes I'll hit the base coffee with a shot of hot sauce, or even flavor it with caramel.

    Electing Joe Biden as President will be similar to going bear hunting at night with just a pair of chop sticks and a lit candle. You know it is a bad idea from the outset, you can not defend yourself, you are ill prepared for what can and maybe will happen, and you question why you even thought it would be a good idea in the first place.

    Coffee...black, no sugar or. Ream and it best be strong.
    I prefer French Roast Maxwell House, Folgers or Wegmans.
    Never buy it out unless I'm travelling.
    I wouldn't take Starbucks fru fru coffee flavored garbage for free!
    Lavazza and Black Rifle are terrific coffees but too expensive.

    I've never tried starbucks, and never will. I guzzle coffee from 7 am till the 10 cup maker is empty. I'm not picky - even vending machine coffee is OK in a crisis. BLACK, nothing added. I'll drink almost any coffee, except the coffee in Europe and the middle east.

    I will get Starbucks when my wife drags me in there...she has tapered off on her addiction however. I do confess that I am partial to their "Verona" roast...it has a chocolate type finish. Brew it at home when my wife buys a bag.

    I drink almost two quarts of coffee a day, black & strong, and I'm not picky about it either.
    Starbucks isn't my favorite brew, by a long shot, and I don't darken their door due to their politics anyway.
    But someone must like their product - they have 11 outlets here in Spokane which has only 215k population.
    In the Seattle area they probably have a hundred stores. I literally know one location in Kent where there are 3 of them on one stretch of road less than a half mile long.

    I've probably been in Starbucks less than 6 times in my whole life. First off, I like my coffee black, no cream and no sugar. If you order a plain black coffee in Starbucks they look at you as if you are a Neanderthal, straight out of the Stone Age. I want a cup of coffee not something that I would classify as a dessert. Besides that, there plain, black coffee isn't very good. In fact it's pretty sucky.

    I'm not really a coffee snob although I do like experimenting with all different kinds of coffee making equipment and systems. The only thing that I insist on is that it has to be fresh. I don't want my coffee sitting around on a hot plate. Make it, pour it and drink it. At the house, we probably drink more Folgers than anything else. I especially like their Black Silk, dark and strong.
