    ... at Starbucks? Just today I spent $6 on a tall (small) cup of White Chocolate Mocha Espresso and an Espresso brownie. Sheesh what a rip-off! Well, you get what you pay for. And you're getting really d@mn good coffee (and an even better brownie) with the reward of an espresso headache to keep you awake :D.

    Not much, because I'm not in there very often lol. We only have one Starbucks, and it's a small kiosk kinda thing inside the Albertson's in Ukiah. I love Cappucino, but when I do get some it's usually at a convenience store or gas station :)

    Ooh that sounds good :). But I wouldn't get a grande because they get cold fast and it takes me like 20-45 mins to drink a tall lol.

    Ukiah is about 10 miles south of me, the closest "real" Starbucks is in Healdsburg, which is about 45 miles or so south of here. Coconut, BLECH! lol I'll take any Chococolate or Mocha flavors though, iced Cappucino is good.

    I'll have a Grande Chocolate Brownie Frappuccino (summer)
    I'll have a Grande Hot Mocha (winter)
    & either a Crumble Coffee Cake or Toffee Almond Bar.... yummy! :D

    There are only two Starbucks in my area. One is in Safeway and the other is in the Golden Nugget. I can't wait to be back in SoCal. The Starbuck out there make everything on their menu better out there IMO. As you can see I like Starbucks. :D

    Last summer I'd spend several days a week at Starbucks using their wireless internet coupled with a Grande Iced Chai Latte (not crazy about coffee). TMO had a plan for $50. for 300 minutes. Now it's $10. for 24 hours so I feel the need to spend 3-4 hours to get the best bang for the buck.

    yeah, i love the smell of coffee. can stand drinking it though. i used to love opening those brick-packed things and smelling all that fresh coffee my mom was about to make. but when it came time to drink it, it was all hers.

    Starbucks is the coffee shop of last resort for me. We have way, way better coffeeshops with way, way better coffee for way, way cheaper. (Equator, which is just off Colorado Blvd. in Old Town Pasadena, is excellent. Lulu's, which is on Ventura Blvd. and Fulton in Sherman Oaks, is also very good.)

    That said, sometimes I'll be shopping in Albertsons and want something to drink, and if I do go to Starbucks I usually get a tall nonfat chai, over ice if it's hot out. If I actually want coffee I get a double espresso. I don't order drip coffee at Starbucks, it always tastes burnt.

    Those brownies are the best. My other choice is their chocolate chunk cookies. I get a tall coffee with it.

    Yes do I LOVE those brownies :). The toffee almond bars someone mentioned above are my 2nd favorite, also. And another favorite is those mini chocolate bundt cakes. Wow do I want Starbucks now :( lol.
