A Posh, upscale, trendy, pretentious coffee shop franchaise hell-bent on putting their more sincere competitors (like Dunkin' Donuts) out of business with their "designer" coffee and latte blends that are merely an ultra-sweetened and enriched concoction of Maxwell House, liquid shit and rat semen. They are mostly frequented by snotty, cardigan-wearing yuppie cocksuckers, corporate scumbags in three-piece suits and working class drones who think paying $4.00 for a cup of coffee makes them more successful and important.
FIREMAN: Oh, sir...sir! The World Trade Center has just collapsed and many survivors need help! Do you have any water you can spare?
STARBUCKS VENDOR: Sure. I have some bottled water over here you can have... for 300 bucks a bottle! Heh heh heh!
FIREMAN: You heartless slug... fuck you!

A clean and convenient coffee-related beverage provider that allows one to go get a consistently good cup of coffee no matter what town/airport you might be stuck in at the moment. Also, a delightful refuge from the hordes of "hometown" coffee shops run by people with bad attitudes who think they're too good for their jobs and intend to take that fact out on you for bothering to want a beverage served by them in the first place...

See also: A place that the average "Anti-popular-culture-trend-is" Spaz, likes to deride in large groups in order to clearly distinguish themselves from "The Man", "Yuppies," "Rich People", etc. Even though, they'd sell out in a second if they had a chance.
Example: No matter where I travel, I'm always able to order my "decaf-iced-soy-latte" and know that they'll make it right, thanks to the good people at Starbucks.

A frielndly corporation that may charge too much for coffee but takes good care of their employees,customers, community,and the enviroment. Part-time employees receive full medical benefits when our government can't figure out how to give the rest of americans affordable healthcare. Last time I checked corporations like Enron are the evil ones. Gas and electric companies are the fat bastards sitting on tons on money and charging us crap loads of money to stay warm in the winter. Peoople choose to go to Starbucks and spend $4.00 on a latte. I can't choose to not have electricity or gas.
Starbucks donates all it's day old pastries to local homeless shelters.

A company wrongly targeted, especially here, for exploiting farmers and "taking over the world," Starbucks actually manages about 5-10 percent of the world's coffee. Nice try, everyone.
I can't believe people complain about Starbucks. I bet they wouldn't be complaining if they were intelligent enough to purchase Starbucks stock.

Starbucks is an upscale coffee house that serves trendy coffee drinks, cappuccinos, frappuccinos, scones, etc. Starbucks is located in most urban/suburban areas throughought the US. I agree, Starbucks is expensive, but it's worth it.

Let's go to Starbucks.
