A famous coffee shop that 9 out of 10 teenage girls love.
Girl 1: We should like, go to starbucks.

Girl: I know, I'm so like, thirsty.

Starbucks is a widely popular and overpriced coffee franchise.

Hipsters diss it and promote "going local", teenage girls Instagram pictures of their drinks every time they go there, and regular people buy their caffeine and work or study in the quiet atmosphere.

A Coffee shop, where after becoming famous, is not actually good coffee at all. An old lady in the back just shits in your cup, and that's it. You can also find people with glasses and laptops occupying the very limited seating space.
Hey, what did you do this morning?

Oh, I just went down to Starbucks to get some coffee

Dude, that sucks

yeah, I don't feel myself, when I think about it.

to rapidly expand a franchise globally, often pushing the local competitors out of business in the process.
KFC, McDonalds, and 7 Eleven have already starbucked their way across Asia, and will probably starbuck completely around the world very soon.

Useful for three things.

1) You're poor/out of town/on a coffee break and you need/want free Internet.
2) You're going to be spending hours working on schoolwork and need a caffeine injection to sustain yourself.
3) Both A and B
1) Jimmy: We're going to New York City... hold on, there's a S'Bucks up ahead. I'm going to check Google Maps for a sec to see where we are
2) Bob: Yeah, my thesis paper is due tomorrow. I'm going to Starbucks. A few shots there should keep me awake, if a little jittery, so I don't crash on the keyboard.
3) Mike: Oh shit. My presentation is due tomorrow and I haven't actually started it. I'm headed off to Starbucks with my laptop. Once a few drinks are in my system, I'm going to set to work and search the stuff I need on Wikipedia, then type it up in different words, cite a vaguely related source, and fancy it up - hopefully the teacher will think I spent the last two weeks on it.

A large coffee franchise that only sells fair trade coffee when requested, has sucky atmosphere, and has ruined the art of true espresso with it's fast-food style espresso machines. I put them in the same league as McDonald's McCrapfe. Not only do they use similarly crappy machines, McDonald's sells Seattle's Best drip coffee, which is now owned by Starbucks as well. Seeing a connection here? Also, they monopolize on the masses of people (who I don't blame) who think sugary, watered down coffee is what good espresso should taste like. I daresay if they had a decent espresso drink, it would rock their world.
Friend 1: "Want to go to Starbucks?"
Friend 2: "Fuck you."

v. To visit Starbucks to drink, socialise, read, etcetera.

'What are you up to this afternoon?'
