“Under the grips of Starbucks”

published 09/08/2007

Addictive, costly and taking over the world

good coffee, good service, good selection...

For many years I reveled in my hatred for Starbucks and everything they stood for. I despised them for their corporate branded image. I condemned them for their over the top prices. I recoiled at their growing popularity as one by one they popped up on most city street corners. I categorically...

“A slave to the Starbucks”

published 23/01/2011

Great coffee, realxing and well-maintained stores

Pricey and apparently, evil

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. It only seems like yesterday that I was at University, writing a case study about how evil the mighty corporation of Starbucks was. Saturating the market, torpedoing small retailers and aggressive expansion in expensive locations all made Starbucks – in my...

You can't walk through Seattle on a Monday morning without noticing that something is different over there - apart from all the grunge, that is. It's that all the people, almost without exception, walk along on their way to work clutching a thermos mug of coffee as if it was the most natural and...

The variety and range of blends

The price

The Starbucks invasion has come to Northern Ireland – albeit in the shape and form of 3 stores so far, although we do have one on the way and expecting the arrival of more imminently! There are two stores in Belfast city centre itself – Castle Lane, Cornmarket (a stand alone store)...

An inferior flavour to certain other coffee chains...

Starbucks are one of the 'big three' coffee chains active in the UK, the others being Costa and Caffe Nero. Whilst the other two offer variations on the traditional Italian theme, Starbucks is unashamedly American about everything other than the names of the coffee they offer. Even the sizes are...

Best customer service going

Pricey, globalised

I am writing this on my palmtop (see my convenient Psion Series 5 review) in Starbucks at 7.30 in the morning. So if I can't convey the atmosphere under these circumstances, there isn't much hope for me is there . . . Prices added 19/11/2001. Nitty Gritty ------------ Starbucks is an enormous...

lots of choice

a bit pricey

A few months ago a Starbucks café opened in Hereford town centre and as I had watched the shop being refitted over the previous months, I was waiting for it to open so that I could go in and try the different kinds of coffee they sell. There is only this Starbucks café in Hereford and having read...

Gosh that is a phrase I hear most days now from my friends! Starbucks it would seems is the place to be! Forget the whole trendy bars in town! If you go to Starbucks your hip and happening! :-) Starbucks has now got several cafes in our town center all in all I believe there are three or four...

“Starbucks Review”

published 17/01/2009

Great coffee, nice surroundings

Expensive

Starbucks is a global coffee house chain; in fact it's the biggest coffee house company in the world. It was founded in 1971 in Seattle, Washington, and now has over 15,000 stores in 44 countries. It enjoyed a huge expansion in the 1990's which included its first chain outside North America...

“The Moby Dick connection”

published 25/03/2004

delicious food and drink, lots of stores.

pricey, often crowded.

Starbucks is the most well known coffee shop. Like, ever. The first store opened in the 1970's. The name doesn't come from the expensive beverages sold in store but from Herman Melville’s famous novel-Moby Dick. (So famous that my spell checker failed to check the word Moby) Starbuck is a...

A nice quiet peaceful coffee experience

High proces for some coffees

Do you ever get that feeling of Deja-Vu when you walk through a town or city centre, even if you've never set foot there before?? It's probably because you're guaranteed to see certain places over and over again. Bakeries - thousands of them. Mobile phone shops - yep, got those. Tesco's...

The thing that bothers me about ridiculously large companies is that I often find them resting on their laurels while their quality slips drastically. This does not hold true for all large companies, but after a number of - frankly - shocking visits to Starbucks I can say that it does hold true...

Slightly invasion-like

At first, I hated Starbucks. I resented that it was taking over the world, and I feared that my home city, Dublin, would have its lovely café culture destroyed and get taken over by Starbucks. Thankfully, however, that has not happened. There are a few Starbucks places in Dublin, but not enough...

“Starbucks”

published 04/08/2007

Nice sized cups of tea

Pricey, no comfey seats, no trays

Created in the 1970's, Starbucks must be one of the most famous world-wide coffee chain. It is quite comforting in a way to know that no matter where in the world you are going, there is a good chance that you will find a Starbucks - comforting if it is something that you are used to. In...
