I like a good cup of coffee. I consider myself a coffee connoisseur. Of course, by coffee I mean coffee; plain, hot, and black coffee. No sugar. No cream. No milk. Nothing that ends in “cino”. As a coffee connoisseur I have arrived at the conclusion that people drink Starbucks coffee for the “experience”; they want to be hip. Why else would anyone overpay for a bad cup ‘o joe? I have never liked Starbucks coffee,and it appears that I’m not alone. According to this AP report at BusinessWeek.com McDonalds’ coffee beat Starbucks in a taste test. Here is an excerpt from the report.
Published reports say the nonprofit organization’s taste testers ruled the coffee served by McDonald’s beat out the pricey brew served up at Starbucks.
Of course, even if the Starbucks coffee tasted better I’d still be a McDonalds man. Taste or no taste I’m sticking with the cheap coffee.
