I am not a fan of Starbucks at all. Never have. The coffee tastes like syrup and something in it (Chicore?) makes it taste funny. Maybe that's why people like it. Not me. I will take my own and brew it (Seattle's Best Henry's Blend). However I hate to admit it but I do really like the MacDonald's coffee. I heard Dunkin Doughnuts coffee is really good but I can't find it here in Kansas but I will try it when I got to Lawrence or some other place. But meanwhile, Starbucks has not been doing too well lately. They bring in the former CEO to shake things up. In the article, I pleasantly noticed in the Time magazine article about has a room full of Starbuck executives has a Maclaptop on one of the tables. The coffee may be not to my liking but the computer is devine.
