    All they had to do was sell coffee. I would like to know how they do that while they offend everyone in turn?

      Indeed.

      I haven’t let companies know that I’m boycotting, but I will never eat Ben and Jerry’s ice cream again, and I avoid Starbucks like the plague. Both were innovators at bringing higher-quality goods to people, which turned out to be successful and desirable. Once that wealth has been built, the SJWs move in to capture it. Eventually,having driven off the 40% of the USA that claims Conservative values, they collapse as a mass market item.

      But the Conservatives do need to boycott, instantly.

      Their coffee is even more offensive than their politics. Starbucks sucks. I’ve never understood how they’ve stayed in business.

    I’m going to show this to my wife so that she’ll FINALLY understand why I always get so upset whenever she wants Starbuck’s (shitty) coffee products. “For each mocha latte you buy, you’re subsidizing the destruction of God’s order.”

      A few years back, I went on a tour or coffee farms in Hawaii. One place we went mentioned how they sold Kona coffee to Starbucks and Peet’s. The farm owner said “Starbucks buys our lowest grade of coffee, and Peet’s our highest.” Obviously, both could call the coffee Kona. Locked that fact away.

      Visited another coffee farm where the girl working the roaster described grade. Low grade coffee requires more roasting to get the flavor out, while high grade coffee develops with a Vienna roast or a city roast: only light brown, versus the black Italian roast required of the cheaper beans.

      The Italians came up with technology to deal with these cheap beans: espresso uses steam to extract flavor and caffeine and leave behind much of the bitterness. But if you water brew with them, you get what you get when you order plain coffee at Starbucks: something that cannot be drunk plain black, ever.

      I’ve visited Starbucks only twice since their “Race Together” campaign of a few years back, once when I was in a country where they served instant coffee as gourmet.

    On the topic of Starbucks, once you start buying from your own local roaster (who knows what he’s doing) and grinding and brewing yourself, the disgusting character of Starbucks’ over-roasted, over-brewed trash coffee is obvious. It’s undrinkable, hence the need to push pumpkin spice with extra soy. Much like having craft beer and then comparing with Coors Lite.

      Coors lite or Bud are good for what I call lawnmower beers. Where you’re hot and sweaty and you want something cold, bubbly, and not sweet. The goal there isn’t the beer but the cooling. They’re undrinkable warmer, or in other areas.

      I give Starbucks credit for getting people to see coffee as more than the cheap crap we used to only pay $.50 on NYC streets. But once you like, like you did, you find much better.

      Try making Jamaica Blue Mountain in a vacuum suction pot some time. My mother claimed it was the only time she drank coffee without sugar.

    I don’t think that I have ever had Starbucks coffee. That might be a good thing.

      There are few things more overrated. It really is just the masterful use of lots of sugar and milk to cover the bad coffee taste, on a massive scale.
