The Starbucks thing

    The actual coffee isn't terribly expensive compared to other places - it is when you turn it into something fancy that it gets out of hand. Usually when I want coffee, I go to Dunkin Donuts. I like Starbucks' tea a lot and their Earl Grey Latte is very very good. Sue me, I like it!

    Starbucks has nicer bathrooms, too.

    My pet peeve. I drink black coffee. I ask for a medium black coffee almost every time I order coffee and the response is “Room for cream?”

    And I dont know how hard it is to serve my espresso in an actual espresso cup like they do in every bus stop in Italy.

    Dunkin coffee is good, but it's barely hot when I get it. So it cools down way too fast. Same with Panera.

    Tend to make my coffee at home with the Keurig My Cup brewer thingy. Partial to Seattle's Best's Henry's Blend. Nice and roasty.

    Had a really good cold brew at Starbucks the other day though.

    Sometimes I'll stop at Starbucks on the way to my gate at the airport, but half the time there are 20 people in line and I'm not about to wait 20 minutes for a mocha/caramel/vanilla anything. I don't know which is longer, the last time I was in an actual Starbucks store or the last time I ordered something from Amazon; either way it's at least 10 years. I didn't know until this story unfolded that you need to request access to the restrooms at Starbucks. That alone is reason enough not to go.

    The bathroom thing is relatively rare. The only Starbucks I've been to where they lock the doors is in a pretty sketchy area of downtown Los Angeles.

    I think the Philly Starbucks manager recently watched Sudden Impact.
