A national coffee chain that promotes a "home-like atmosphere" in their stores. Many people consider their coffee and espresso drinks over-priced, and for the most part they're right. Their coffee makers are... decent, but they're the real rip-off, not the coffee; you'd be better off paying half the price for a Cuisinart, which would work just as well, if not better. If you want to invest in this company, you have to go through NASDAQ and not NYSE.

Interesting fact: there are about 200 Starbucks in New York City and about 90 in my hometown of Houston. Now THAT'S a helluva lot of coffee.
I personally like Starbucks' whole bean coffees. When you buy a pound of beans from them, it's pretty much the same as 2 half pound bags of coffee beans from a grocery store. And they stay fresh for a much longer time, so I guess that's where the extra money goes.

A major coffee chain that people obviously think is the devil's brew. Starbucks is apparently 'The Man' taking over the Earth.
Naysayer: "I hate Starbucks! It's turning America into mindless clones!"

Me: "Dude, get over it. It's just coffee. Let me drink my frappuchino in peace."

Starbucks, also known as, crack for rich people.
Junkie 1: Dude, my drug dealer got shot yesterday. What am I going to do?
Junkie 2: Lets go to Starbucks and get a Mocha.
Junkie 1: No there's no way I could afford that.
Junkie 2: I guess you'll just have to stick to inhaling cans of computer Dust-off again.

Despite what the "free thinkers" will tell you about how Starbucks is somehow going to take over the world (this isn't Austin Powers), their coffee is pretty good. I figured we would have learned our lesson from South Park.
Jilly: Starbucks is so dumb. Only sheep go there.
Billy: Yes, I'm sure sheep would probably enjoy the taste of good coffee as well.

A widespread corporation that makes coffee, i don't care if it is 'the mans' way of drinking coffee, its is delicious. Granted, i don't like their stylings, like the smooth jazz playing in every branch, or the artsy fartsy stuff on the walls, or the names like decaf white chocolate bold mocha latte with cream, and then the description is, a bold, intriguing beverage, but i just like the coffee
ex.1: some guy: dude, i can't believe you bought that £2 coffee from 'the corporation'
me: shut up and let me drink my coffee

ex.2: me: what is a java mocha latte?
clerk: it is an invigorating, intriguing, bold bevarage from the foothills of mexico
me: does it taste good?
clerk: uuuh i don't know

ex.3: preppy scenester: oh, i love the smooth jazz stylings and intriguing art of this place (sips coffee) oh, this coffe is so smooth
me: shut up and let me drink my coffee
