Starbucks' new super-expensive coffee: Worth it?

Nov 26, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Until a few weeks ago, Starbucks' most expensive coffee was the citrusy, milk-chocolatey Jamaica Blue Mountain, available for $30 for a half-pound of beans, or $4.50 for a tall, brewed cup.

Everything has a designer label, why not coffee too? I won't buy it, but hey, some people like things that sound fancy and cost a lot, more power to Starbucks if this proves profitable.

I wouldn't pay $7 a cup, but say what you may,
i like going to Starbucks abroad because it feels little bit homey, i said little bit!
It's the feeling, music etc., i once lived in Seattle for couple years (-94-95) and that was before Starbucks was well known, what a great city Seattle is......yeah i would't pay $7 a cup but what i would do like right now, i'd pay $20 if i could walk the streets in America for 20 minutes, i'd love to be there in America and if there......yeah, then i'd pay that $7 a cup!

$4.50 though--I might try it, the fear is that I will get hooked. . . .

You only get hooked on things like coffee if you have a weak will ... or drink as much as I do.

Thanks Michelle!
I'm originally from Europe but Europe's not my cup of tea! I've had the best years of my life in America and no place else!
