Starbucks Bold–Ugh

In Food, Uncategorized on July 27, 2010 at 11:08 am

My boss stopped at Starbucks on the way to work and picked us up drinks, which is pretty fantastic. She called in to see what we wanted and since I was going for black coffee and am not a fan of their Pike Place blend, I decided to try their bold pick of the day. I took one sip and wanted to throw out the drink. It was so burnt that it didn’t even taste like coffee, more like a piece of toast you put down a second time and forgot about. I thought Pike Place was bad for tasting burnt, but whatever this is, it’s worse, a lot worse.
I think I might stop buying Starbucks altogether, even when someone offers me a drink from there. I’m always disappointed. I already focus on hitting the local places for coffee, and this has just entrenched the importance of that even more. The coffee places I frequent in Edmonton never give me burnt coffee. If you want a really good cup’a joe, check these places out: Transcend Coffee, Three Bananas Cafe, Leva, and Credo. I’ve heard others sing the praises of DaCapo, but as I’ve never been there, I’m not ready to endorse it yet. Transcend is right next door, and they’re internationally recognized for their coffee. They  do great coffee, and that’s that.
