They over-roast their beans. No bueno. Ruins the flavor of literally every drink to the aspiring/established coffee connoisseur.

I refuse to spend $7 on coffee, but I don’t really have a problem with the company

Love their coffee, hate their politics.

No issue with them as a company, but I don’t like their coffee.

Positive. I like their coffee drinks.

Middle of the road in terms of quality.

But the girl starts making my order as soon as she see my truck pull into the lot...so the positive out weighs the negative.

The only ones I’ve been to were inside of Barnes and Noble. I’m not impressed.

I would much rather go to a local coffee shop.

Very neutral. I don't drink coffee but I do like the occasional hot chocolate from there.

Negative. They’re pretty much the height of materialism.

Also, if you’ve ever been inside of one, they have the rudest and most self-centered customers on the planet.

I work there. They pay higher than the minimum wage and I get free food and drinks. Positive.

Positive. They were a lifesaver when I was traveling around England and my phone was stolen. I was forced to use my laptop to check google maps, and communicate with my friends and family in the US. I tried other cafes but their coffee was awful. Starbucks is not the greatest coffee, but could still drink it and I am grateful that there were so many locations.

Their coffee is very tasty. One of the few things I'm willing to pay a premium for

Praetorianus Fair enough.

Very positive.
I can't believe I hadn't found out in 15 years in Florida that for a reasonable price for a cuppa, you get free Wifi and charging.
I went totally geek on them, connected a tablet, 2 phones and an energy 2 go, and they didn't complain.

You know, public libraries have free internet. You don't need to pay $4 for a cup of coffee to use it, either.

You think I don't know? 😁
Well, it's Sunday...

Library's closed on Sunday lol

I'm probably biased against Starbucks though because of politics and economic status. Also, Starbucks seems to favor big cities, and I really dislike big cities and most people who live in them

Praetorianus Fair enough.

My town has less than 30k inhabitants.
Our Starbucks however has leather lounge chairs (feels like an old style sitting room, just you cannot smoke) and nearly everyone is plugged in.
So what political issues are there with them? Really curious.

They're very progressive, and they don't try to hide it. I'm conservative, and I don't agree with them. So I don't want to give them my money, especially when I can get coffee way cheaper elsewhere. I tend to think that the only reason people go there is to support the advancement of these beliefs. I know that's silly, but it's just my honest thoughts

Praetorianus Fair enough.

Oh crapola, there IS a political issue:

The article is a bit lopsided but I get it.

I can see why you would go for the amenities, although I’m not a fan. Panera is like that, if you happen to have one.

Yeah that article pretty much sums it up for me lol

I do tend to associate Starbucks with yuppies and social justice types. I know it's largely dependent on the location, though

Praetorianus Fair enough.

At my place, it's just nerds and geeks any age, including myself.
We are all wired and wear those new, fashionable Monster headphones and feel we're cool. Just kidding - or am I?😄
