- $5 COFFEE
I just got back from Starbucks. It was a tough decision whether or not to go in since I haven't bought a cup of coffee from them in probably 3 years. Reasoning being both their business practices and the fact they are everywhere and invade every neighborhood possible in this city (and others I'm sure)
My bank gave me a free $5 card for starbucks yesterday so I had to decide whether I was going to use it or give it to a friend. I decided to go in and spend it.. I bought some iced caramel mochiitao thing which cost about $4.25. I can't believe people spend that much on a cup of coffee sweetened with some syrup. Does that make me sound like an old lunatic saying that? I mean no alcohol and still almost 5 bucks! anyway I'm drinking it right now and I'm really not too thrilled with it.
I ended up giving the remaining 75 cents on the card to a customer who was sitting there drinking his coffee. I have to say I'm happy to see that they now offer Fair Trade coffee even though it costs a little more and there was only one flavor to choose from, still that is a good start for them.
