Starbucks Without the Starbucks

What is your favorite part about Starbucks? For some, I hear, they feel every time they go to Starbucks they feel part of the Starbucks community. That is exactly the part I hate about Starbucks. I can't stand the pretentious customers. I can't stand their pompous staff. I can't stand the irritating music they play because they want to create an "artsy" environment. I can't stand their exclusive language for a simple cup of coffee. What I do like is their coffee.

Imagine a world where you could enjoy Starbucks coffee without all of the Starbucks experience. Now that world is a reality. Starbucks now offers you the option of buying all of their products from the comfort of your own home. No pretentious customers. No annoying staff. Just great coffee.

i thought everyone knew the whole "community" thing is a marketing ploy to get you to feel like you can't buy anything else? people actually SAY crap like that? oh man oh man. it's a sad world.

I like the Starbucks atmosphere. I mean, the baristas do suck most of the time, and sometimes my frappachino comes out not tasting as good as it should, but something about the way I feel when walking into a Starbucks is comforting. They have one on campus here at UB and when I walked into it the other day, I felt like I was back at home ordering coffee for everyone at work during the winter season last year. I guess it's just what you attach to it.
