A normal coffee at Starbucks runs $2.02 (or $2.12 for a 20 oz). I don't see that as abhorrent at all. Actually, if you're going to buy coffee out, it's a pretty good deal.
Gas station coffee will generally run $1.39-$1.59 here. With the Starbucks coffee you get:
1) Better quality and far better taste
2) Better cups
3) More caffeine. 29% more than Dunkin' Donuts and 52% more than a 7-11.
,br> The people who are paying $5 for a cup of coffee are getting fru-fru drinks loaded with whipped cream, sugar, and calories. Less caffeine for their bucks, too.
And hey, I like my caffeine. ;) Prevents diabetes and Alzheimer's, afterall. Mmmmm.... (Yep, that's exactly why I drink it...)
Starbucks is more than coffee, it is a place to meet, comfortable. You don’t get nice for free. Like hey, meet me at McDonalds and we will talk over that deal.
Starbucks came up with a great concept. Wish them well. When we can no longer afford simple $5 luxuries, we are in trouble as a country. Maybe we already are.
