Starbucks makes good coffee. I know they are everywhere in the U.S. and have recently opened in Dublin. I can’t think of anywhere that I’d rather to go to read my copy of ‘No Logo’ by Naomi Klein than Starbucks. My favorite tipple from Starbucks at the moment is the ‘Frappuccino’, either double chocolate chip (with crème), or Strawberries and crème, depending on my mood. The debate in my head goes something like:
Me: Strawberries or chocolate, strawberries or chocolate, strawberries or chocolate, strawberries or chocolate, why can’t they mix the two? Maybe I should just have a tea? Can’t decide, brain hurts…
Starbucks guy/girl: “Can I help you sir?”
I know that people give out a lot about Starbucks and their coffee buying, GM milk, chocolate practices, and that they close down lots of smaller independent coffee houses. Have a look here. My point is that if you want a good cup of coffee, with great customer service then Starbucks is a good choice. I’ve been to other coffee houses and the some of the staff are just rude and I sometimes feel that I’m bothering them by asking for a coffee.
Andrea has gotten four of her five exam results back. She has gotten A / A+ in all so far. She's chuffed with herself (and rightly so). I wonder if I should treat her to a Starbuck's Frappuccino, chocolate or strawberries, chocolate or strawberries….
