    I've had a softer spot for Starbucks since they brought us round free coffee while we were waiting for the Apple Store to open in Regent St. And opened up early so we could warm up in any case.

    I don't like coffee but I am pretty sure every place will be packed around here once word gets out. There is a Starbucks on every corner from Redmond to Seattle, its makes me sick.

    No starbucks really close to me, I would have to go into town to take advantage of the free coffee. I love Starbucks, so maybe if my parents are going to go into town I will ride with them and get them to stop for some free starbucks :)

    Whoever said "no starbucks near me," you have no idea how rarely I see that.

    Starbucks are on every block, across the street from eachother, next door to eachother, the entire world is one giant Starbucks! :eek:

    Starbucks = over-priced, tasteless dirtwater. Trust me, I used to work for them.

    Get away from the chain stores and go to a real café for your coffee. Coffee isn't meant to come in a bucket.

    There's one at Shellharbour Square. It's about 1/2 an hour away. I noticed it the other day while I was there. I know of two in Sydney.

    We just don't do the whole "chain store" coffee thing, we like to drink our coffee from cafés.

    Man. So lame.

    I can't believe my students are so evil that their mere presence will preclude me from getting free coffee ...

    Got several on campus. Highly doubt that they will be participating. Will probably have to travel for about 60 seconds by car to the nearest.

    There's a shopping center a 3 minute drive away that has 3. One stand alone Starbucks, one in the Albertsons (grocery store), and one in the Barnes and Noble.

    The cups they serve them in are bucket-sized. Gross, foul, dirt-water. Have a real coffee in a real café.

    You're surely the minority with that opinion.

    There are at least 3 Starbucks in about a 10min radius from my house...and about the same around works. It is going to make me sick if I even think about it.

    If I go out for coffee I prefer the local coffe house. I usually grind and brew my own.

    Too many starbuck's in NYC. I know where there are two SEPERATE Starbuck's right NEXT to each other :eek: (one's in a barnes in noble, but…)

    I have found a new one every month here:eek: In Houston they have one with a drive through:eek: It get's to be too much for me!

    starbucks isn't that bad. I like them. Chantico's are really good. Try one today!

    Off topic but: 2 more posts until 500! Tomorrow i strike 6502 and avatar! I know, off topic.

    I only get coffee at one place, which I think is closer (or only slightly further away) than the nearest Starbucks. The guy and his wife own it, and my cousin works there, so I always get treated well :D
