The other day, I went to one of their stores and discover why they changed their name fro0m Starbucks Coffee to Starbucks. For some time, Starbucks has had freshly brewed decaf coffee on hand. But the other day, they wanted to make a cup from what they call pour through. Any true coffee aficionado will tell you that it taste like monkey piss, and it leave a horrible aftertaste that lasts for hours after drinking it.
I cancelled my order and prepared to leave. A customer who was at the counter (someone I know) told me the clerks said I was mean. I had to laugh. In other words, I’m mean because the shop the sells freshly brewed coffee failed to have freshly brewed coffee and I refuse to spend money on something that tastes terrible?
Back to the name change: Starbucks has ventured into other markets that most likely provide greater profits for them. The attitude is, damn those who made us what we are today. What will the future bring?
How about some competition in the market?
When will someone else get into the coffee business and do a better job than Starbucks?
When will someone give Starbucks a run for the money?
Excuse me for whining.
