Fuckin' Starbucks. :fu:

They closed the "good" one at One International place for renovations, and now I have to go to the new one in the lobby of the Boston Harbor Hotel. :nono:

The new one sucks, because the staff is all new and have no idea what they are doing, especially the giant, fat, lisping, muttering "barista" who doesn't speak up when putting drinks up on the counter.

And it's too small, and filthy with rich, obnoxious German and Italian tourists who have no idea how to order anything, or even stand in a proper line.


FUCKKKKK YOOOUUUUUU!!!

I don't mind the starbucks. My girlfriends mom drink so much of it at home and when you take the empty bag in you get a free tall coffee. We usually have at least 50 of them around at all times. :clap: Free Coffee!

Ironically*, Dunkin' Donuts serves light roast coffee, a style which is considered more favorable among the coffee-drinking elite, while Starbucks is known for their darker brews.

Light roasts are mostly considered more favorable by coffee drinkers who want the most caffeine possible.

A claim to elite status will not camouflage your chemical dependency problem.

I find Starbucks' Veranda "blonde roast" quite pleasing.

Light roasts retain more of the individual bean's flavor; darker roasts essentially cook those individual flavors out of the bean. In other words, folks who spend extra money on obscure beans from remote places, then have them dark roasted, are not really getting the full experience of esoteric and exotic flavors.

Also, they wanna get high as hell.

today at "my" starbucks they had a sign above the blonde roast saying "try it with a splash of vanilla."
i almost did.
but i got french roast instead because i'm a coffee snob, obvs.

ps i feel bad for the barista hipster chicks who have to wear their new pink aprons. :(

The Starbucks near my work absolutely sucks. I had to stop going there for a few months because there was this old asian woman that worked there that was more interested in talking than getting your coffee. It got to be so bad that she mentioned in passing when her last day was, so I set a reminder on my phone for when I could go back (and yes, I know that's weird) . Now they have some miserable college aged girl working there that looks like she's throwing a tantrum when she has to make drinks for people. Recently, I've been stuck going to Dough Boy in Southie. It's better than Dunks, but not by much.

The idea that light roasted beans retain more caffeine than dark roasted beans is a coffee myth. The longer coffee is roasted, the larger the bean becomes, so for coffee measured by volume (i.e. using a scoop) the lighter weight-wise beans have more caffeine because there is simply more coffee beans in each scoop. When coffee is measured by weight instead, the exact opposite happens; darker roasts have more of the water cooked out of them, so they weight less than light roasts, and thus an equal weight of the two would have more dark roasted beans than light roasted beans.

Or something.

Or something.

And since everyone I've ever had coffee with prepares his or her coffee by volume rather than weight, people who seek out light roasts get more caffeine from their cup of coffee. Like I said.

(What kind of monocle popping Thurston Howell the Third jagoff prepares his coffee by weight?? If you know such a person, please stamp upon his spa-treated ballsack for me.)

I bring coffee from home or get one in the cafetaria at work. They have Seattle's Best and Starbucks. No baristas :(
