Starbucks Coffee Shop Review – Cup of coffee worth the expensive price?

Are you one of those obsessive Starbuck’s coffee drinkers?  I personally love Starbucks, but I think that it is too expensive.  I don’t know about you but I don’t like to pay $5 for a cup of coffee that I could just make at home for a lot less money! Even with the economy the way it is right now people are still buying coffee and Starbucks is still thriving. 

The downfall of Starbucks being so expensive is that it is so delicious and addicting.  Even though people may not have the money to go there for coffee, they may use their credit cards and pay it off later.  Some people love Starbucks, but some people hate it or just only like one thing off their menu.  I know a friend who only likes the cold drinks from Starbuck’s because the coffee does not taste so strong.  I also had a friend who went to Starbucks with me one day and got a Caramel Latte, and he said that it tasted like he was drinking acid.  We had already left the coffee shop before he tasted it because it was so hot. 

Seeing that we had already left, there was no way to return it and get our money back.  Even though his latte wasn’t very good, I got a Pumpkin Spice Latte and it was delicious!  I don’t know if it is just because it had a different flavor or what.  My friend was really disappointed because he usually gets the cold frappe drinks, but this time he ordered a warm drink because it was rather chilly out that day.

Another way that I feel Starbucks rakes in the dough is the fact that it has a very relaxing environment.  On top of the relaxation, they also supply a free wireless internet connection for everyone who wants to sit in the coffee shop and work on homework, set up business plans, or even just to surf the internet.  Starbucks can also just be a great place to meet up with friends and have a cup of coffee and a little snack. 

 As I have said before I enjoy going to Starbucks, but I prefer to make my own homemade coffee beverages with my Mr. Coffee frappe maker.  I was able to purchase it last year at Wal-Mart for around $80.  The Mr. Coffee frappe maker also includes a drink recipe book which has a lot of amazing coffee masterpieces.  If you are looking for a delicious cup of coffee, I suggest spending the money to buy a Mr. Coffee frappe maker, but if you enjoy the distinct delicious taste of Starbucks then spend the $5.

    personally, you are just paying for the name. it is not worth paying $5 for just a cup a coffee, then they try to get you to add a muffin or bagle which would be like $3 more. Not worth it!!
