Sometimes there isn’t a local coffeeshop nearby and we have to go to Starbucks. Today was such a day. We arrived and ordered coffee for our to go cups. Instead of pouring the coffee into our cups, as they usually do, they used a paper cup to dispense the coffee and then poured the coffee in our mugs. That, of course, defeats the purpose of bringing our own cup. In fact it makes a mockery of it. We were wondering whether this new looking machine dispenses a fixed amount – 12 ounces for small/tall and 16 ounces for medium/grande – and REQUIRES a paper cup? Perhaps the machine works by weight rather than the amount of liquid dispensed? Either way it is not a good development. Does anyone know something about this?
I will have to bring coffee on the next tour so I can make coffee in my room.
