HMMM didn't starbucks pride itself on "fresh roasted coffee?" So they are now doing instant coffee?

THey have now come down to the lowest common denominator, when their main competitors are McDonalds and Folgers, what does that saw about the brand.

Congrats starbucks, you just announced that you are crap coffee.

Only thing I don't like about the Via is that they consider a "single serving" to be 8 ounces! They are selling five eight ounce packets of coffee for $6!!!! This is insane. Hardly anyone ever buys an eight once cup of coffee at Starbucks - or anywhere else. nearly everyone buys either a 12 ounce or a 16 ounce cup.

So forget it; until they give us 12 ounce packets of Via for the same price, I won't be buying it.
