Never had panther urine to compare it to.
I like Starbucks and D&D, but I rarely visit Starbucks as I find their prices insane. D&D is easier, cheaper, taste just fine, and they're everywhere.

This is news? An over priced coffe shop closes for 3 hours to train their people how to make a cup of coffee and this is all over the papers and TV news. What a joke. People just love to get ripped off.

I finally had starbucks coffee for the first time last week. For over 25 years, I've been drinking mainly Dunkin Donuts coffee.

Let me tell ya, for what they charge, the coffee was frucking horrible. Starbucks is a frucking rip off, 2 times as much for a cup of coffee,ain't worth it. I'll stick to D&D.

While Starbucks coffee is way too strong for me, I'm glad they're here. A gourmet coffee bar. We Americans love having choices, and Starbucks is one of them! Now if they had a Guatemalan choice, they might entice people like me ....

As long as Top Pot is able to maintain their quality through this nationwide distribution, then Dunkin' Donuts is just not even in the same league. Top Pot makes some of the best donuts I have ever tasted. Dunkin' Donuts are greasy and lacking flavor. The extra 46 to 70 cents you'd have to pay for a Top Pot donut is a mere pittance when it comes to the quality difference between the two.

DD SUCKS the big wazoo..once for the hell of it I went to the drive thru and ordered a cappucino. The MORON said she couldn't fix me one because they were out of the capsules!!!! What the freak does that mean?? Hey, Starbucks may be a bit pricey BUT the coffee, cappucino, espresso whatever...is delicious and well made. Geez...ya only live once..(at least in this life). Splurge and spend 3 bucks!!

Starbucks does have some good coffee, to go with its' ambience-a nice perk- every once in awhile.
So does The Beanery chain.
