FYI, living social has a $5 for a $10 Starbucks giftcard. Figured we talk about beer, alcohol, egging, someone else on here has to like coffee?

    I really don't care for starbucks but might be worth while for someone who does. Personally I feel like sites like these want me to give up to much personal information to make the 5 bucks worth it.

  • I usually make my espresso based drinks at home on my Rancilio which is way better than Starbucks but its better than the office coffee we have at work. Thanks for the deal.

  • The last time I was forced to go to Starbucks, I asked the waif for the nearest thing she had to Folgers.  Pissed her off ....  I think I got an Americano Grande sans leche or some **** like that.  I think they tack on $2.50 for each descriptional word they hang on it.

  • Gary, next time order your size in normal English. They really are hard up about calling them venti or whatever.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

  • Geez, getting $10 worth of Starbucks for $5, at $5 it is only about 25% over priced, don't get me wrong, I do appreciate @fletcherfam bringing to our attention, the thought was nice.

  • When I go there (not often), I always order in english.  I figure there's bound to be somebody working there that can translate.

    I wouldnt Piss on Starbucks if it was on fire. I think the last time i had it was 15 years ago and still paid 3 bucks for something.

    Coffee always at home and if I am on the road McDonalds crap is not bad. I think it has crack in it because after my wife drank one she would not stop talking for a few hours.

    I like saving my money for my Egg.

  • @fletcherfam I hope you are not taking this personal. Thank you for sharing.

    With all the recent infighting, I think a little levity at the expense of Starbucks is in order.

    I like starbucks coffee. It's potent. I order a large house when I go, they always seem to give me the right thing. Expensive, but convenient (most of the time). McD's coffee has gotten much better in the past year or so, but it also costs more now.

    Starbucks coffee is alright. But i tend to be a non comformist when it comes to stuff like that. It seems Like some people buy into the image.. Instead of the coffee... Kind of like Apple users:)

    I'm a drip coffee geek.  Roast my own beans.  Good *$ is fine, very good even.  Many locations just don't seem to get it right though and produce a burnt tasting brew.

    Lots of folks like to hate on *$ but when my work requires me to travel I'll pick a hotel near one.  Can't abide that Hampton Inn swill to get my day started.

    Home brewed is best for me. I like to browse coffee at Fresh Market and bring home all kinds of good ones. Economical and just so good.

    Or big packs of Blue Mountain or Kona Blend from Costco works as well.

    OK now. Considering we are on a BGE site, this is funny. We could all get our ceramic grill fix with another product... There is an image associated with being an egg owner. (... and I run OS X and Windows on my MacBook. (Can't legally do that on a PC...))

  • Thanks for the posting. I like Starbucks but very rarely go, I usually just order a large regular black coffee, the strong Appalachian accent keeps the barista from asking me to order in another language. Thanks again Fletcher.

    Being a nonconformist just for the sake of not conforming is stupid.

    @Fletcherfam thanks for the heads up.

  • No offense taken, I could see the joking in between the lines. I live in Washington so I am not the biggest fan of their coffee (I have a lot of choices around here), however, it will suffice when I want coffee and don't want to go to the gas station to get it.

    I am a coffee snob so my preferred coffee is dillano's or Forza.

    Being an egg site I was waiting for someone to say they brew it on their egg.

  • That is a good deal. I only get Starbucks in fall bc I love pumpkin flavored for the couple months out of the year. I almost never drink coffee but my aunt owned a local cafe called Perkin' Beans that is, by my standards, pretty good. She recently sold but still orders the stuff for her house and I'll get some, mostly in winter. I agree being non-conformist just for spite or sake of going against the grain makes equal sense to doing something bc it's popular. You're still being controlled by trends. Do what's best for you. It's amazing how many things are popular bc they're good. Might not be absolute best but in general it's popular bc it's better than 90% and easily accessible.

  • Starbuck's gives m heartburn big time! Can't drink it at all. I do however, hit Classic Rock Coffee in Springfield, Mo. about 4 times a week to get my caffeine fix.

    You do realize what brand you choose defines you on the Internet right? :))
