Today, people flock to Starbucks because it’s what they know, they don’t know any better. When I was growing up I could not stand the taste of coffee. My parents and grandparents would pour these foul-smelling cups of what looked like oil runoff from the Sears Auto Center. It’s what they knew because it was the cornerstone of the market. People get used to what they know and it’s hard to change.
When I do buy a Starbucks coffee I get the jitters because there is so much caffeine in each cup. It’s like they spray the beans with extra caffeine before they grind them. Get to know a local roaster, it’s the best way to get your coffee, it will cost less and taste much better.
