The rest of your questions I will leave to your imagination.
There's a lot worse things kids can be doing than buying expensive coffee, just remember that.

It's the gateway drug to eventual purchases of $3000 Italian espresso machines like my friend has.

it's a specialty store with on-site roasting. it's something you do every once in a while for fun if you like coffee, it's not some great sin you need to protect your children from.

I dunno. My 20 year old developed a $10 a day Starbucks habit. She has since been rehabilitated. It's what "everyone does, Dad!" And she thought Fresh Market was a fine substitute for Kroger. Youngsters often don't appreciate the value of money. She is far from alone...

Coffee is a dangerous drug and we must control who has access to it.

But take your guns to school, kids.
