Mmmm coffee. I'm a constant Starbucks drinker (the latte's) only b/c I like my coffee sweetened and Starbucks are EVERYWHERE up here in Oregon (I seriously drive my 6 Starbucks in the 6 miles between my apartment and job!). After not having Dutch Bro's for over 10 years though, until a few weeks ago, I'm more hooked on them now. It tastes better. Every once in a while, Starbucks gives me a guaranteed stomachache.

I also, typically, don't mind coffee from 7-Eleven. It's freshly brewed and somehow tastes better than what comes out of my home coffee pot.

McD's coffee is a little too strong for me. Massive stomachaches with that stuff. And of course, they give you like 2 little bags of sugar when you ask for sugar... that's not going to sweeten it enough for me! Plus, i never go to McD's, so I'm not about to start now.

It's most likely the water, too heavy in minerals or they failed at cleaning the pots. One thing better at Starbucks that I can attest is they must use filtered water. I can't really recall from other places but I frequently see people come in and exchange water filter tubes at Starbucks.

I think BK is trying to clone the Starbucks dark roast brew. If you ever stop by Starbucks again, ask for the medium roast. Typically the Pike or Blond Roast are not as burnt and has a balanced flavor similar to DD's roast but slightly more acidic. The caffeine content is still way higher in Starbucks than other places.

I have one cup of coffee a week at the local Panera, where I stop for a quick pastry before heading to the grocery. Thanks to a very flirty but harmless employee, I don't think I've ever paid for it. Shhhhh! Don't tell anyone.

[quote=vision33r;34214543]Just about every store and eatery is offering discounted coffee deals the past few months.

DD - Seems like they didn't run any discount coffee promos

And I have to say that I'm more than ticked that they got rid of their "two-fer" promotions for their ground coffee.
