Is anyone here else addicted to Starbucks??? Being an hour away from Seattle we are close enough to smell the coffee beans and get hooked. There is a Starbucks everywhere here. I didnt even go before I moved here.

They took My Brownie Frapp away sad.gif But there is another pretty close to it that tastes more like coffee laugh.gif
So what about you guys, what your pleasure?? I mean besides beer_mug.gif biggrin.gif

I love their sumatra blend or the kona, either of them taste real good. I like dark bold coffees. I can drink a double espresso without blinking depending on the time of day. tongue.gif

Triple Grande cappuccino, a bit on the dry side or a double espresso.

I never have cared for Starbucks. They burn their beans, and that ruins the flavor IMHO. I like getting my coffee from the new BP Amoco gas stations. They have cafés in them called The Wild Bean and they have excellent coffees. They have Colombian supremo, Ethiopian yirgacheffe, French roast, and a couple of others that I can't name right now.

Vanilla Latte' double shot espresso

OR

The vanilla cream frapp. But i think the new strawberry frapp is winning first place, as the frapp of choice.

Starbucks is reserved for those days when I need a special treat -- then it's always their Peppermint Mocha that I go for! If they've decided it's the wrong season for that flavor, I(nicely) let them know I'm disappointed sad.gif (in hopes they'll bring it back full-time)! At that point it's a tossup as to what I'll choose instead. I love the cozy atmosphere in there, though! It's very relaxing.

I'm not a coffee drinker, prefer Diet Pepsi. I do occasionally like a cold Frappacino, tho.

I saw a bumper sticker the other day that reflects my views on Starbucks.

Ah, the Triple (or sometimes Quad) Venti Caramel Macchiato.

That's what I treat myself to on paydays.

Ok, confession time here. I have never been in a Starbucks. Left the states before they had spread all over the place. However I really like good coffee and there is a lot of it grown here. As a matter of fact I think there are a number of growers in Chiriqui that sell to Starbucks for whatever that is worth. A friend of mine brought me a lb of Janson's from Volcan and it was very good, but I would not spend the $8.00 a pound myself.

We drink Café Olimpo at the house, not sure why other then that is the brand everyone out in this part of the country drinks. That particular coffee company is located out here on the Azuero, so that may be the reason for that. We have a coffee tree in the back patio but lowland coffee turns out really bitter. My mother-in-law roasted some and ground it a few years ago, thats when I became aware of how much she must really dislike me laugh.gif .

So, most of your discussion here goes right over my head not having any idea of what you all are talking about other then the fact that somewhere, those fancy named drinks must have a little of the old joe in them. Anyway, if any of y'all make it down here, stop by and I will make you a real cup of coffee you will never forget.
