It's for chumps, but for 'shits and giggles' thought I'd see how good a coffee sold by them is, that costs a pint of beer.
The bloody show... Rather charming onesan made this coffee for me, and rattled off the spiel in Japanese, corporate Starbucks has had scripted. Good for her she found it about as silly as me, but hey, she had a job to do, and keep (and who can help enjoying an honest giggle from a girl half his age?). Gave me the grounds to sniff before the machine did its voodoo. And sure, it was good.
About as good as Starbucks coffee was five years ago... Anyone else noticed the change? I am no devotee - never was - but in less fashionable parts it was the more palatable option. My palate has not aged so quickly. That is to say, it's more likely the corporation found a way to skim money for cost-savings since most twats who go to Starbucks get something more masturbatory than my black coffee: 'venti no-fat caramel frapuccino', or such. You want some coffee with your baby formula?
This snowflake knows when he's being had.
