I like cafes too
If i didnt get a discount in starbucks I really wouldnt go there that often unless Im in a place where I really dont know anything and I have the choice between starbucks and a questionable looking coffee shop. At least with starbucks i know what im going to get. People like consistency, even if its consistently mediocre.
Then again, people bash starbucks all the time but it wins blind taste tests
I have to say I made the most kick ass cappuccino ever

I'll stick with going to cafes or pubs and saying 'I'll have a coffee please'. And I get a cup of filter cofffee, with some milk in a little jugs and a few sachets of sugar in case I want them

bollocks to all the fancy shit. It tastes like crap anyway



When I was in London a couple of weeks ago, I tried to get a cup of coffee before I got my train back to Norwich. I went to one of the coffee shops in Liverpool Street Station, stood in the queue, and stared at the menu, unable to find the word "coffee" (or even "Americano") anywhere. So I just gave up and went to Millie's Cookies, since it actually sold coffee.

I don't know a latte from a lemon...I'm hopeless But, when I do go to Starbucks, I always end up with something with a lot of kick. My question to the experts is: what's the healiest drink to consume on a regular basis?

I believe this to be normal at coffee shops, Angela. Tell the manager, they won't care. It's the sort of behaviour they encourage.

and when you sigh and say 'I suppose' they then say 'tall? grande? so fucking huge you'll be peeing like a racehorse for a week???'

I JUST WANT COFFEE!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was just going to say that and I work in a coffee shop. In the shop where I work, if someone asks for a cup of coffee, we give them a small cup of drip coffee. We don't ask if they mean a latte or an americano or anything else. I guess we just figure if they wanted one of those things, they'd ask for it.

I love Starbucks, but after the location closest to my work got closed for 3 days due to cockroach infestation.......I obviously had second thoughts about that place.
This Starbucks was located next to the chinese fast food on the food court....and the roaches traveled....the location was posted on the LA Times....

It really depends on what you like actually. Because technically something without caffeine would be best for you But ruling that out you would want to not get any flavor syrups in your drink, if you want sweetener use the raw sugar
Of course no whip cream, all the lattes are made with whole milk unless otherwise instructed. Soy milk is great for you, as well as just an americano or a cup of tea.
A lot of people get sugar free vanilla skim lattes But Im not exactly sure if its really that good for you yet.

I've spent far too much time wondering whether he was drinking regular coffee or a latte or something.

Dunkin Donuts owns my soul for my morning caffeine fix...right now I'm addicted to the blueberry iced coffee. But Starbucks is my afternoon snack/caffeine fix when I need it. My favorite coffee snack is a grande nonfat carmel macchiatto (no offense to any Starbucks baristas if I said that wrong).

Thanks for the info! I try to drink green tea because I hear it's good for me, and that I'll live forever if I drink it...but I wish it was tastier.

Im so spoiled, I had this really good chai when I lived in Oregon and now the starbucks chai tastes like shite to me
Unless I make it with soy and shake some cinnamon in it
Ive spent time trying to decipher what Bono was drinking too I wish there was no sleeve on it, we might be able to zoom in on the side of the cup
