    What's the Point

    I have had it once (hot chocolate since I don't drink coffee) and I wasn't impressed. I think Swiss Miss is better and for the price of one cup at Starbucks I can get a whole box, possibly two. It's such a waste of money, but being a poor person maybe I can't appreciate the...

    Not Going To Happen

    First of all, I don't like coffee...period. I don't like coffee flavored ice cream (yuck) or coffee flavored candy. So, I can't ever see myself heading into the place to spend maybe $3-$4 or more. I don't really even know the difference between things like latte, expresso or...

    Too Broke

    I don't have anything against Starbucks....I just am running on a shoestring budget that doesn't allow for fancy coffee. I can scratch my Dunkin Donuts addiction, getting food and drink for less than most of the coffees at Starbucks.Not too hard to guess which one I'm going for...

    It's too expensive, and besides that, it's too strong.  I'll take a D&D coffee over a Starbucks one anyday.

    I Like the Smell of Coffee But Cant Drink It

    I think coffee is overrated and I think people only drink starbucks because they think it is cool. I would not spend 5 to 7 dollars on a drink each morning. I don't like their silly crazy chippy smiles Also I don't like the scene.  The smell of coffee is ok but I can't drink...

    Too Much For Me

    I just have a hard time with the idea of paying upwards of 3.00 for a cup of coffee regardless of what they put in it.

    I Have No Reason

    There isn't a good reason to perpetuate the myth that $8 is acceptable for a single cup of coffee. If I want a different taste sensation that's coffee related, I go to Gloria Jean's for less than half that!  And it's better tasting coffee!

    i rarely drink coffee

    and when i do i am not driving somewhere to pay too much for it. if i do go there, it is only to force that hipster behind the counter to say "large ,medium or small". they hate that, but i refuse to leave until they do. then i cancel my order.

    They claim to support our Troops

    but won't send them care packages because they do not support the war. What bull! Thank goodness for Dunkin' Donuts! They send Troops care packages monthly!

    Must Add Water

    Starbucks coffee is just too strong.  It's like they use a cup of ground coffee for every cup of water.  It gives me an instant headache.  Since they don't have a water faucet at the little sugar and creamer bar I choose to not buy their prepared coffee at all...

    SPARE me ....the aftertaste. I hate the way it tastes. Okay so i don't really drink coffee a lot, but the few things i have had from there are so disgusting. People just drink coffee from there for the icon, which is really really stupid. lol

    Starbucks Smells Bad

    I don't like coffee, I don't drink it. I do like tea and hot chocolate, though i prefer to buy them for a reasonable price, and that can't be done at a starbucks. But my biggest problem with starbucks is the smell. Most coffee smells great, even people who don't like coffee...

    I Actually Work At One

    I don't "do" Starbucks, but I do work at one.  We don't get much bussiness at ours so I will make myself something to drink.  What I make I like and what I buy I hate (because no one makes it like I do).  Also, the size names are trying too hard.

    I just don't see the big deal. You pay a bunch of money for a tiny cup of coffee that's too strong to drink, and everyone approves of you. I think Starbucks is extremely overrated, and people who talk about it constantly really get on my nerves. I just think that if you really...

    It's Overrated!

     Yes, they're consistant, and unlike what some might say, that's not a bad thing in my book. However, I don't think they're the be-all end-all of coffee.  I think there's way too many flavored drinks, their sizing names are inane, and the "ambiance" comes off...

    No Thank You

    I've tried it, was in need of coffee while driving on the turnpike and that's what was available.... it was the worse coffee I ever had, AND the most expensive!  I even bought it during prime breakfast hours so I know it was freshly made. I have no desire to go back again...
