The true religion of the United States has become designer coffee-an affordable luxury. The cathedrals and churches of this addictive institution go by the trade name "Starbucks". Given the religious fervor of patrons of such establishments, these caf├ęs are best defined as "St Arbuck's."
Shall we gather for our morning ablutions at St Arbuck's?

A coffee house company known for being the only thing in the world you can say is in every corner without exaggeration.
Starbucks stores are everywhere from the street right accross Starbucks, to a section inside China's holy Forbidden City.
Sure, this might be hilariously annoying, but hey, it's good coffee.
And at the same time, a not-so-bad corporation.
Granted, it used to be a bad corporation a decade ago, worthy of having had its windows smashed during the WTO protests in Seattle, and the ridiculous number of Starbucks-per-acre are a clear remnant of its scare tactics in which some of these coffee houses ran on deficit just so that small local coffee houses were forced to close down.
But this is a thing of the past, and, especially compared to any other corporation, Starbucks has had a change of heart.
Currently, their coffee is delicious, and supports Fair Trade. Maybe only 6% of its coffee comes from Fair Trade from small independent coffee-growing cooperatives, but that six percent is still half of the entire coffee fair trade in America. They pay their employers decently, and while its attempts at promoting a Bohemian-like culture and attitude with its jazzy music and overall ambient is at best mediocre, it's still more culture than the average American bothers to get involved in.
There is one bad thing with Starbucks though: most of its customers. Starbucks sells good coffee, but so do many other local coffee shops. It is only reasonable to buy the best tasting coffee, yet a big number of Starbucks customers go to Starbucks because it's Starbucks! Remember, flavor is very important, but so is buying local.
Trendy kid - Let's get a vente mocha at Starbucks.
Kid that thinks - Q8 makes a better mocha than Starbucks.
Trendy kid - But what social status does Q8 have?

Wannabe rebel kid - Man I hate Starbucks! It's a fucking corporation!
Kid that thinks - I hate greedy corporations as much as the next guy, but you do know Starbucks is very into Fair Trade and even closed all its stores for one day at the expense of millions of dollars just so that they could teach their employers better how to make a good cup of coffee?
Wannabe rebel kid - I did not know that...
*and both become the wiser thereafter*

Where yuppies go every morning. also where white people who studied liberal arts in college go every day because they like to congregate and talk about how the job market is terrible when in reality they aren't qualified for any job because writing and analyzing poetry is not a job skill. You can expect to see tons of white college kids there as well complaining how college tuition has gone up, when their parents pay for it and their only expenses are DUI tickets and 5$ of starbucks every day for 4 years...do the math.
Suburban white kid: I'm making a starbucks run who wants to go?
Others: me me me!
They drive away
Black dude: why don't they study? Aren't they afraid their gonna get kicked out?
Hispanic: naw they pay full tuition so as long as they don't shoot anyone they're fine.
Inner city white kid: don't they realize they spend thousands of dollars on bad coffee every year?
Immigrant kid: my parents risked a lot to get here, I party, but ill loose my scholarship if I don't work.
Chinese kid: well maybe they don't need to do work all they take are minimum requirements and liberal arts courses, what do they plan on doing when they graduate?

A really unimpressive coffee company that is over hype by middle school kids who think they are emo but are just hormonal and bitchier than the more superior of the human race. Everything taste like coffee, I shit you not. Go in and get a hot chocolate. What do you expect in your hot chocolate? Hot water, Chocolate mix or syrup... That's simple right? Nah they're all like "Yo, I'mma put coffee in this so that way it just tastes the same as EVERYTHING ELSE in this shop." Way to alienate your possible consumers. Oh and the sizes are a bitch too. Tall? Vente? Grande? Uhm... Aren't tall and grande close to being synonymous? Don't matter, they're all over priced and basically the same size anyways. They're putting their stores in funeral homes. Well that's just fucking depressing. Imagine the people who have to work at those homes and see sad people all day and dead bodies? They make sales expecting people to drown their misery in hot chocolate/ coffee, coffee milk/ coffee flavored coffee.
I wonder what would happen if starbucks opened its own deli. Would the sandwiches be "Ham and coffee grinds?" Or "Coffee bean and swiss?" They would have head cheese but instead of meat in the head cheese it would be coffee grinds.

I say "Screw that" Go to dunkin donuts, get yourself a hot chocolate that tastes like it's supposed to.
Dude 1: "Yo, let's go to starbucks."
Dude 2: "Do they have non-coffee? I hate coffee"
Dude 1: "Yeah... Get a hot chocolate dude that shouldn't be bad"
Dude 2: "K"

Starbucks cashier: "How may I help you?"
Dude 1: "I'd like a small..."
Starbucks Cashier: "You mean tall?"
Dude 1: "You know what I mean small mocha chai with... Meh fuck it all drinks here taste the same anyways, just pour liquid in a cup and charge me"

Starbucks Cashier: "Anything else?"
Dude 2: "Get me a grande Hot chocolate with cinnamon"
Starbucks Cashier: "Kk that will be $10.82"
They pay and get out of there
Dude 2: "Bleh... This hot chocolate tastes like COFFEE!!!"
Dude 1: "Shit happens when you go to starbucks bro."
