Spoiled on Starbucks

Protecting your hands for 35 yearsI realized something today that I never thought I’d admit to.

It’s taken me many years to admit this and I know I’ve been in denial for about a year or two. But you see, I just like the coffee at Starbucks better. Mostly because it’s reliable. Verona, Estima, Sumatran. It’s all good.

Now I don’t get the $3.42 frappamochaicechinos. I just get regular coffee. Straight up. Black, no room for cream.

But today it really hit me. I was in a restaurant for lunch and while looking at the drink menu I saw they had coffee for 99 cents. I decided to pass on it because I’d rather pay $1.72 for coffee at Starbucks later. I chose to pay more because I knew it’d taste much better.

Yes, it’s ridiculous. But that was the moment it hit me.

I’m spoiled on Starbucks.

So, you wanna be an enabler?

  • When it comes to coffee, people just like what they like. It doesn’t make any sense – especially to me, since I don’t drink coffee at all. But I know a buddy of mine who will only get coffee at Dunkin Donuts. He never drinks it at home or anywhere else. Weird.

    Now don’t get me wrong, I’ll drink just about any coffee. But I finally realized not only do I like Starbucks best, I’ll hold out for it if possible. I used to think gas station coffee was fine. I’d almost rather have water instead now.

    What happened to Barnies? Thought that was your favorite…had Starbucks decaf every morning at the beach and it was yummy! I do like the $3 mochas though…
    I am a sissy girl!

    Barnie’s just isn’t as good. Either they got worse, Starbucks got better, or my taste changed for the stronger.

  • Yes, I’ll be one of your Starbucks enablers!!! I couldn’t agree more…Starbucks coffee is just somehow worth paying more money for! I am completely addicted to it (I like their mochas) and go there at least 4 times a week, sometimes more! Just the other day, I decided to try something different there since it was so hot outside. I tried their new summer flavored Orange Creme’ Frappucino and it was yummy!!! There’s no coffee in it at all, but it was a great summertime treat…tastes just like an orange creamsicle…very refreshing when it’s hot outside!! I’ve never bought any of their more exotic flavors or take-home bags of coffee, but I just love the experience of sitting inside Starbucks, taking a few moments to sit in one of their big comfy chairs and reading the newspaper or playing Soduko while sipping a delicious grande or venti mocha! When are they going to invent a frequent-user bonus card or something where we get some free coffee after purchasing 12 cups?…LOL

  • Your taste changed and before you didn’t want to support the mega-chain coffee stores.
