A lot of people have no interest in playing the coffee-wanker game.
At work the other day, some chap came in for a meeting with us and we got some coffees from the refectory. It "proudly servers" Starbucks' coffee. After a while he noticed the starbucks logo on the cup and said "Ah it's Starbucks'. I thought it was good !". I had to stop myself laughing.
Now I don't claim to know anything about coffee, but to me Starbucks is the McDonald's of coffee. Mass-masket shit for plebians. No one serious about food goes to McDonald's. Does anyone serious about coffee go to Starbucks? Even the name sounds tacky. I feel dirty if I go in such a place.
