I Like Local Coffee Houses Better Than Starbucks

    Local Is Better

    I would not say that I hate Starbucks, but I would have to say that I think they are over-rated.  I go there sometimes, like late at night when the good places are closed or when I am in a new city and do not know where the good coffee houses are. But Given a Choice I would...

    Favorite

    I have a favorite coffee house I have been going to recently, not too far from where I live. They roast the best coffees, have the best selection of flavored coffees as that is my passion, and they treat the customers incredible. I use to go to this one in the past and then...

    Ambiance

    Starbuck's is okay but the local coffee houses seem to have more atmosphere. A chat and even networking. Me, i like Grande Soy Sugar-Free Cinnamon Dolce Latte (hot) and Iced Grande Soy Chai (cold).

    Meh

    Starbucks is the McDonald's of coffee...not the greatest by any means, but consistent.  You know exactly what you're in for no matter which one you go to. I do love my little local coffeeshop much better.  I just wish they delivered!

    Individuality

    This is due to the fact that so many of the local coffee shops around where I live have closed and been taken over by Starbucks- within a few metres there are three branches and I don't see the point in there needing to be so many of the same thing- they are like the McDonalds of...

    Discovering Local Flavors

    To describe my feelings for coffee would take forever, suffice it to say I love the stuff and enjoy it, need it, crave it and want it. Enough said. There is a lot of fun during travels here and there to discover a local coffee place to get a taste and idea of the locals and the...

    Local Coffeehouses

    I am a big fan of local coffee houses versus the chains. I enjoy the variety of flavors of beans they roast, the prices are really reasonable, the atmosphere is electric, and the people that come in could be my neighbors and co-workers. Some of the coffee houses I go to have...

    Wish

    I wish there were more local coffee houses near downtown Pomona.  Unfortunately I'm doomed to stay there for another year and a half, if all goes well at grad school.  It's like a black hole of coffee shops, but it's close to Cal Poly Pomona where I'm currently studying...
