What’s wrong…

…with Starbucks:
1. Espresso is served too hot in order to hide the flavor. In Italy an espresso can be sipped right away.
2. The Cappuccino formula of third coffee, one third steamed milk and third foam is a Starbucks invention. Hint – just because they use Italian words for everything does not mean they have a clue about Italian coffee. Wet or dry foam are not words you ever hear from a real Italian barrista.
3. Serving every single order in papercups is incredibly wasteful.
4. Calling their employees partners is silly. Partners can make decisions, employees cannot.

Let’s be honest: Starbucks is the General Motors of coffee, the Exxon of coffee. Support your locally owned cafe wherever you can.
