While wandering through Target yesterday I saw a display of Starbucks coffee and decided that since I have heard so much about how good it is, I thought I would try some. I must say I was quite disappointed. I think that the best tasting coffee is Folger's although I have gone to the store brand from Walmart in the last few years due to cost, and actually that is not too bad either.
The closest I can come to comparing the Starbucks coffee to is the coffee supplied by the local hospital which is, I think, some kind of liquid which is diluted by hot water.
I have been drinking coffee since I was a child although not regularly until in my mid teens. I don't like decaf which is just hot brown water in my opinion and like my coffee black with no sugar. I also don't like really strong coffee which allows me to drink coffee all day if I feel like it and even in the evening although I do tend avoid that because I don't like to have to get up at night to run to the bathroom. I worked nights for eleven years and coffee was a necessity for me to get through the shift since I am by nature a lark, not an owl.
I am willing to experiment so I may try some Dunkin Donuts coffee next since some people say that is the best.
Enough complaining! I just wanted to express my opinion that I don't think it was worth the extra money.
