Your not going to get a fucking Starbucks card from me!

Facebook keeps wanting me to buy people Starbucks gift cards for people's birthdays.

It doesn't matter who they are...

Apparently everyone loves Starbucks.

Even people with medical conditions that prevent them from drinking coffee love Starbucks!

In all reality, I would only give a Starbucks card to people I don't like very much because it is rather lousy coffee.  Now, it is not lousy in comparison to things like Perkins or McDonalds.  It is certainly better than that Farmer's Brothers shit they serve at most hotels, or anything from Dunkin Donuts.

In all reality it is better than most all of the coffee I have had in Canada (Sorry Tim's and Robin's, but your donuts are where its at, your coffee is rather lame).

But there is far better coffee in the world than Starbucks.

Chances are it isn't burnt either.

I have worked, although as of late my hours have been a bit limited, for a coffee roaster for eight years, I know what coffee is supposed to taste like, and charcoal is not one of those things.

Many coffees have delicate undertones, some of them have explosive over-tones, but it all tastes the same if you burn the fuck out of it.

So at least Starbucks is consistent.

But it is not good, if it was good coffee they you would not need all of that coffee pollution to drink it.

(Coffee pollution is normally referred to as things like creme, sugar, any of the syrups, etc.).
