Obviously, Starbucks is the worlds best roaster and producer of fine coffee and tea. otherwise how could they been on every street corner in the world (sans Italy)? Personally, i don't drink coffee but i have to admit the gangsta of Starbucks. They're a juggernaut that can't be stopped! That said, do you prefer to get your coffee from the massive entity that is Starbucks or do you prefer to support the little guy? Don't dare liken Starbucks to Wal-mart because besides the obvious domination of each's respective markets they alike in no other ways. Let's discuss!

I'm a coffee drinker and starbucks is one of my favorite coffee shop. But if your a coffee drinker whether you buy from starbucks or other coffee shops booming in the corner or just a instant 3-in-one coffee, you would appreciate it. The taste of caffeine for a coffee drinker matters.

The taste of caffeine? I don't think you can taste it, but you're probably referring to the physiological effects that it has on your body to keep you awake and alert throughout the day. I think it's called addiction, lol.

You hear so much about Starbucks and how they are on every corner that it is hard not to get sucked in and give in to the temptation to try them out. Even I, not a big coffee lover myself, have been there. I do love cappucino, which they do very well. I really have never been to a little guy type of coffee shop. So I guess that I support Starbucks! I really haven't been back in a long time, but I truly enjoyed their cappucino when I did venture into their establishment. ^_^
