Nay...Coffee equivalent of a Big Mac (i.e. like McDonald's - ubiquitous and pushing out the family owned coffee shops - and the coffee isn't even that good!) With that being said, I do go there, so I'm a hypocrite. I prefer Peet's.

I like my coffee black. I've never felt the need to get it from anywhere that will charge me more than a dollar and change for a big cup. And, as far as I'm concerned, drip coffee is drip coffee. So, nay.

I'm a big coffee fan but don't go out of my way to go there. Mom n pop coffee is better and cheaper, plus less lines. Let the drones wait in line for the same ol coffee.

They make decent frames, usually on the heavy side. You should try one.

Ok think about it. Addiction is bad right? because addiction usually means dependency. Right? So if a person is dependent on coffee to wake up, or stay up. Isn't that a bad thing?

If you get 100% Kona from Hawaii which is grown in volcanic enriched soil (hell, the islands are nothing but volcanic soil now that I make that statement). It cost up to $50/lb.

I brought some back from Hawaii in 03' ................it is a coffee conisseur's coffee!

Consumer Reports blind taste testers disagree!

Me, I prefer Starbucks over Peets, but I generally visit the local shops if I know about them and the coffee and service are good.

You know, you can get addicted to just about anything. Sugar, fat, the internet.

Some people just like drinking it. I can wake up just fine without it, but I still like to enjoy a cup every now and then.
