I'm just fine with coffee from Ihop, Dunkin Donuts, and $1 large size coffee from McDonalds and all three places have really good coffee. I'm not going to Starbuck("SBUX") just because of the name anymore than I'm going to pay ungodly amounts for Abercrombie and Fitch clothes. Maxwell House or Folgers at home is excellent too and MUCH cheaper. I love that Starbucks stands for equality and all and I support them sometimes or go there occasionally for social reasons but I'm not going to pay their high prices every day or week plus it is too strong for me. I like strong, moderate, and mild but not as strong as Starbucks.

I do applaud them to standing up against right-wing boycotts. Kudos to Starbucks for that! You'll always do good business but please don't higher your prices.
