Why do you drink coffee here?

Why do you drink coffee at Starbucks when there are cheaper shops to buy coffee? Well, is it because it's famous? Or is it just because you like it?

im insanely in love with starbucks coffee. i find that i enjoy that brand more than any other brand. but more than that i love the fact that they provide a very relaxing atmosphere to enjoy your coffee in. most places don't do that. yeah theres mom and pop stores that do but i just don't feel as relaxed there because their set up is not as good as Starbucks. well i take that back...where i lived i New York state there was one that had a similar set up but still i like the starbucks set up better. i love how they like have actual chairs that

We dont have Starbucks here actually but there are lots of coffee shops and I think they offer the same coffee as StarBucks does. I was able to have a taste of their coffee. ITs really really good but I guess Im not that much of a coffee nut.LOL Thats why maybe I wont be able to understand the urge that coffee lovers have with coffee. Maybe with chocolate I can. Maybe its the same.LOL^_^ I think most people buy at Starbucks because it is famous and it does have a brand. The good thing about it is that it does have good quality so you are guaranteed to have a great tasting coffee. But thats just me.^_^

At first i thought the many people patronize starbucks because of the name - because it's famous. But lately , i came to realize that indeed their products are really good compared to others i've tried. I've tried cheaper coffee shops even those with the same price but still i find that starbucks' coffee is more superior. As for me, it's the taste that keeps me coming back.

One simple word: taste. I have not found a coffee that tastes as smooth and crisp as Starbuck's. They don't bother with flavored coffees, but rather with coffees from different regions around the world. Each region has its own flavor and taste. I love African coffees, especially Ethiopian. Starbucks has it, others don't.

Some of the coffee flavors or combination of things they have, I couldn't find it in other places... I found ones that came very close but not really same... I drink all different brands of coffee & sometimes I do crave for the ones that starbucks sell...

I don't drink coffee at Starbucks, but I do like their hot chocolate, especially the peppermint hot chocolate. I do all of my coffee-drinking at The Second Cup.

I'm not really a coffee fan. Before i told myself that i would never drink coffee in Starbucks considering their coffee are kind of expensive. Last month, my college crush brought me to Starbucks and told me to try. I ordered Chocolate. She told me that it's got no coffee. I must admit that it's different than the the usual chocolate drink i have tried. It's a lot smoother and thicker. I guess i can say now that it's worth the price.
