I love the seasonal Christmas blend from Starbucks. I am usually not a big fan of big corporate business, but times like today's moment is what makes me realize why Starbucks is successful. I ordered a tall Christmas Blend feeling the seasonal spirit today. *cheeky* I ended getting charged for a grande. I skeptically paid for the charge. I was curious and inquired as to why the cost has gone up. The cashier affirmed the cost is consistant to what I ordered; a ""grande"". I told him that was incorrect because I was holding a ""tall"". Puzzled, he looked at a fellow barista for consult. She took initiative and apologized profusely for the confusion. She instantly and incessantly handed me a coupon for a complimentary cup. She changed my tall to a grande, sans extra charges. I am so glad that Jen was there to give a great face to the corporate giant. Thank you so much for you help and making my Starbucks experience a good one. Sincerely, Happy Local Customer

I find starbucks coffee to be rich in flavor and body. Their cappacino is one of the best.

I LOVE Starbucks. Not only do I go there 3-4 times a week, I also make my own cafe mocha in the morning, using Starbucks mocha syrup and espresso beans. Their chocolate brownie frappaccinos are also great!!

I am not a US Resident but I have been to the states couple of times in different locations and one think that I definitelfy miss here at home is Starbucks Coffee. To begin the day with Caramel machiato is a pleasure. I wish we have them here in Macedonia, I would agree to anything just to hevae them here.

I could not believe my eyes when I read that their morning brew was ""sophisticated and light-bodied"", or when I read that their kenya cup had a ""complex city attitude"". TALK ABOUT MARKETING! I think it is overpriced at least three-fold. Their coffee beans are over roasted (taste burned), and they water down their coffee. It is very bad tasting coffee and I do not recommend it to anyone that knows their coffee.
