Thanksgiving Breakfast

Today, we had our annual Thanksgiving breakfast at work. The food is never a disappointment. Eggs were good, plenty of fruit, pancakes, sausage, etc. It was wonderful.

There is one thing, however, that really bugs me. Starbuck's coffee. Now I'm sure it's wonderful for all you Starbuck's lovers to get a free coffee in the morning, along with a free breakfast. But I gotta tell ya, I think Starbuck's coffee is simply mud in a cup, and the people at Starbucks are laughing at all of you for paying $5 for a cup of mud! Hello??

I tried a cup, thinking, well, it can't be that bad if I make it myself. So a little Splenda and some 1/2 & 1/2, and I went back to my desk. WRONG! It is that bad! I took a sip and immediately felt like the hair was starting to grow on my chest! WTF??!! I really don't understand how anyone can drink this crap!

I'll stick to my Dunkin' Donuts coffee from now on. I hope all you Starbuck's lovers enjoy your mud!

Although I love me some Starbucks, I do not really enjoy their coffee. Like you, it is very mud-like, imo. It is much better iced, but I still prefer either an espresso drink or a tea, although their iced coffee will keep you up for days :)

1. There is annual Thanksgiving breakfast in Phoenix?

2. Normal Starbucks Coffee does not cost $5.00 a cup. It costs about $1.50

3. Most go to Starbucks for speciality drinks not a regular cup of coffee.

Queen - yes, after 1 sip of the mud, I will be awake for at least 17 hours!

Kim -
1. Yes there is - you didn't know?

2. My mistake...but even $1.50 is too much for mud.

3. My mistake again, but I have tried some of them and, imo they are just as bad as the coffee.
