I am wondering, just how much higher can you go for a not-so-decent cup of coffee? I love coffee, and I guarantee I can make it much better than Starbucks!

I could care less about them raising prices. I pretty much thought they were too high to begin with, so I have rarely gone there. I generally drink regular coffee without all the stuff they put in, so I could always find a better cup of coffee for a lower price somewhere else (McDonalds, AM-PM, 7-11, etc.).

Smile News, A Coffee Less Ordinary.

Thanks to Starbucks and its many competitors, we all know there's more than one way to drink coffee. But during my recent visit to Ethiopia, I experienced a whole new preparation of coffee that's different from anything I ever imagined.

Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee, so as you can imagine there are numerous rituals built around its preparation and service. Most intriguing was the way coffee, known as bunna, is served in Guarage, the region my girlfriend is from. First, the coffee beans are roasted, and guests are given a whiff to see how nice they smell. Then the beans are brewed and poured into an espresso-sized cup. Then, instead of topping it off with milk, a dollop of spiced butter is stirred in. It sounds weird to us, but my Ethiopian friends thought it was just as weird to have a latte loaded with milk and sugar.

Post News, McDonald’s plans specialty coffee drinks in ’08.

OAK BROOK, Ill. - McDonald's Corp. plans to make specialty coffee drinks available in all of its U.S. restaurants by the end of 2008, according to a published report Monday.

The world's largest fast-food chain has been talking openly for nearly a year about plans to add such drinks as lattes and cappuccinos following its success with premium coffee, introduced in 2006.

Crain's Chicago Business, citing planning documents, reported that the rollout of the new coffee drinks will occur in 1,500 restaurants by the end of this year and in the rest of U.S. restaurants by the end of 2008. It said McDonald's predicts the new drinks will add more than $1 billion a year to sales.

I will never order one unless they get RID of the styrofoam cups which leach benzene, a known carcinogen, into the coffee.

I like the mcdonald's iced coffee. I buy that a lot rather than pay $4.00-$5.00 at starbucks. It honestly doesn't taste that much different to me.

I also like the Mcdonald's coffee. Although that is not as good as starbucks I will admit.
