I remember from the few times went inside starblahs they have all these posters banging on about beans from (good farms where they don't beat but actually pay the workers) in Kenya or Brazil etc.
cream/milk sourced local, likewise what goes into the cookies/cakes they bake.
now apart from that all they have is cups, mugs, small plates, doilies and spoons right?
OK paper/plastic cups & stirrers for takeaway... I'm sure those can be sourced locally too.

apparently starbucks supply chain is heavily affected by the shutdowns in China

what do they need from China?
particularly that which would be a "major" supply item??


Now I realise why their coffee tastes artificial (well all-round crap taste, definitely nothing like coffee)
- too much melamine??
- too much ground up PCB boards (from all the imported "e-waste")??
- literally desiccated pelatized crap?? (got to wonder right? they make rice and eggs from plastic)
- ???


Note: not attacking china, not political, rather questioning the efficacy of starbelch's products.
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
