The only way I can stand coffee is if they do "all the fancy stuff" with it. My Starbucks at the end of the week while we grocery shop is sort of my
survival treat. The two baristas at the grocery store on Sunday mornings are so good they see me coming, have the drink ready to go, and they have to
ask is what flavor I want since I do vary that (grande mocha, extra shot, 1 flavor shot). And those ladies behind the counter are all right, too.
They've stood me a coffee a time or two in the past when times were tough. I've taken them Christmas cookies and I tip.
But those are mainly my local gals I really like. I'm not going to hurt them.
Starbucks itself? I appreciate that they don't make their drinks taste overly sweet. QuickTrip coffee makes my pancreas want to curl up and die when I
add their cocoa to it. I love Caribou though. They also know the value of not making things taste overly sweet.
Yeah, things can be loaded with sugar and not taste overly sweet.
