So after I finished cleaning up the tea I snorted through my nose laughing at this ...
Personally, I think Starbucks coffee tastes gross. It's kind of ... I don't know ... burnt or stale-tasting? I've never understood the Starbucks fixation.
The town I live in has one
Starbucks, and it's attached to the Chapters (which I've always considered a brilliant marketing ploy: read a book while you drink your coffee). Starbucks doesn't tend to do well here because of fair trade issues (which I'm not well-versed in, unfortunately); this being a university town with a lot of student activists, Starbucks is often boycotted against -- I don't think it would be profitable for them to open a second store here. Besides, Tim Hortons has a strong
hold on southwestern Ontario.
