A barista shoppe that advertises a shot of espresso added to cups and cups of milk smothered in whipped cream and (insert flavor here) sauce as a legitimate coffee beverage. Calling yourself a coffee nerd while drinking Starbucks is the equivalent of calling yourself a beer nerd while drinking Budweiser. For some reason, this shop has been demonized by the alternative culture for being "corporate" and yet I see these same kinds of people ordering venti iced Caramel Macchiatos for themselves and their mothers the very next day.
Alt dude: Don't go to Starbucks! Starbucks is part of "the man's" attempt to enslave mankind!
((((the next day))))
Alt dude: I'd like a venti double shot raspberry green tea coffee with whipped cream. Oh, and lemme get one of those strange chocolate brownies over there!
Starbucks clerk: That'll be $13.94.
Me: CAUGHT YA!
