    TBF - The company is worth millions. I am not exactly wealthy. I figure when it's on them, im eating and drinking nice.

    And if they say, 'eat cheaper' i just say, 'uh, i dont eat fast food because it's unhealthy.' and i dont drink soda or coffee, either ...

    if you don't push back, you get rolled over.

    I guess that's the difference. I've always worked for smaller companies. But even if I didn't work for nickel-and-dime, inc., I'd probably still eat the same way. I think it's just a fairness issue.

    Ugh. My mom bought us a super coffee/expresso maker for us at my bridal shower. Problem is I DON'T DRINK COFFEE.

    Thanks mom, now I know who your favorite is.

    Expound, if you would, on the maple beverage offerings. I assume there's some form of maple latte and maple hot chocolate, but are they making a new beverage featuring it (like the banana coconut frap)? Also, would the maple be a syrup that can go in any beverage? I'm suddenly drooling at the thought of a crisp late October morn with a venti maple mocha in my hand.

    Don't worry, you will be able to get your Venti Maple Mocha soon.
    In fact, you will be able to get maple topping (I've been told it's just like pancake syrup) on top of your whipped cream if you please.

    Yes, the maple will be in syrup form, so you can add it to any beverage - frappuccinos, lattes, mochas, hot chocolates, drip coffee, etc.
    There will also be a Maple Macchiato (similar to the caramel macchiato), which is topped with the pancake-like syrup.
    (Note: there will be two syrups - the version that will top the drinks is a thicker kind).

    We have a Seattle's Best in the Borders cafe. Another local place in Ivy League town makes each cup fresh and has a million flavors, including a very season coffee from Jamaica. Great stuff, but never around. Wonder why.

    My Charbucks's story: My wife goes in today for a skinny cappucchino (sp?) and I wind up spending $22 -- on her "coffee," a tin of mints, her Tennessean and an '80s CD. And i didn't even get anything to drink.

    Starbucks bought Seattle's Best a few years ago.
    I don't know why they just get rid of it and make everything Starbucks.

    I went into the Starbucks near where I work today, Boom, and they had quite a bit of Ipanema Bourbon left. Thought of you.

    Sally Struthers could feed lots of starving children with that coffee money.

    But I'll bet a lot of guys would be starving as well if they didn't have their java to get them through another day at the office.
