    I politely ask if they could point me in the direction of the closest roastery.

    ~ I haven't been in a Starbucks in over 4 years.

    Here are two web pages that should help you when you're ordering at Starbucks.

    I order the same thing everytime (not that often, but still) and still feel like I'm tripping over the words.

    Venti Mocha Caramel Latte with an Extra Shot of Espresso

    It'll do in a pinch, but I hate paying $5+ for coffee that's not as good as what I can make at home.

    That is easy...Nothing
    I would not support Starbucks in any way shape or form. They have been the downfall of the coffee industry over the last 10 or more years. They have taken the coffee industry, cornered the buying of beans which has lessened the quality while increasing the price, all for their income advantage.

    Hello again,

    There is an "order" to the way you should place your drink order at Starbucks. Here is a website that explains it.

    But sadly I dont know that they would know fresh "just roasted" coffee, so this might be a lost question.

    Friends dont let friends drink charbucks...LOL.


    I have had starbucks coffee on many occasions and it isnt that bad, I just dont like anything over commercialized. Do you really need 100 different Starbucks branded accessories? Really? All this venti, blah, blah, blah.....How about a "12oz cup of black coffee" ? and it would be nice if it was roasted in the last 10-14 days, ground then brewed right away. It would also be nice to have a cup that was brewed less than 5 minutes ago.
    Everyday, make steps to be the greatness you see in yourself.

    I don't understand all the SBUX bashing and boycotting (?)

    For those that are in the specialty coffee industry (owner, barista, online coffee sales) being familiar with Starbucks is very relevant to your business.

    Strengths
    1. Cleanliness
    2. Efficiency
    3. Consistency
    4. Logistics
    5. Branding
    6. Marketing

    I visit several shops a week, and have yet to find a show that couldn't take a few lessons from SBUX, on at least one of the items mentioned above

    I am not defending them by any means. They went down a path that worked for them, a lot of us would do things differently if we had the opportunity. None the less, it took "specialty coffee" to the masses and opened doors for many of us
    From popup, to truck, to brick and mortar, to multiple brick and mortar, to popup, to open/close, to open, open, open, to popup, to all closed.
    Now I make videos about coffee and answer questions where I can help out https://youtu.be/GIUFvS9EYYw
