After coming to America i have had coffee in starbucks for quite some time and i love it and believe me i have never been a regular coffee drinker till then. Now i feel i am addicted to it and i drink only cold coffee and it is very very expensive. Dont u think rates at starbucks is a bit too expensive. I certainly think so with a frappuchino for 3.5 usd.....

That is why they get you addicted first!!! But people keep buying it no matter what the price. I am in Canada and we have coffee places called Tim Hortons. Since we live in an isolated rural community Timmy's as we call it is 1 1/2 hour away. I ended up buying their brand of coffee maker as well as the coffee just so that we could have it at home.

starbucks is so popular and i also believe it's one of the best coffee shops in the world. so i guess its more of the brand name that is costly. there are many other coffee shops around that are competetive in terms of products' quality but are less expensive. you can try experimenting on them. good luck.
