No way! I don't like their roast - it's too hard, makes the coffee taste burnt and bitter. And their water is too ... refined and "chemically". Our water comes is very, very soft because we're nearly all granite, with no local limescale - and that really makes a difference to the taste.

Interesting! I have had a couple of people mention to me that Starbucks outside of the USA is not of the same quality as here in the good ole States. I wonder: Is your Starbucks made from pure Arabica beans as it is here, or do they blend it with cheap and nasty Robusta beans? This will be interesting to research, as it will explain the difference. Robusta is very bitter and is often used as a filler in coffee blends to lower cost.
Indeed they do, I start having uncontrollable ticks and feel like I have to flea.
