How can you not like Starbucks?? I love their Mocha Frappachinos. I just don't like their prices.

Jacki - As I remember, Mocha Frappathingy is cold.coffee. Just wrong. And what's wrong with small, medium and large?

Starbucks coffee always tastes burnt. A friend who roasts coffee for a small rival firm tells me that this is because they use inferior beans and over-roast them to compensate...
