I have been a regular on Starbucks for so long. I love their Sumatra coffee the best and their Ice-shaken. Their food selection is not bad and varies depending on which country you are in. In those years I would go to Starbucks minimum once per week, and during which I would also go to other coffee shops.. I think it was the fact the Starbucks grew on me! But then I realized.. this isn't the best coffee in the world!! Really!

Around 3-4 years back.. I started going to other cafes more and more, and going to starbucks less and less.... I realized that I loved their drinks more than Starbucks's!!!
Second cup have amazing coffee selection, and a yummy green tea latte! So does coffee bean and tea leaf.. plus their super wide range of herbal teas! Those two coffee shops are growing on me heehee

I will explore and write more about the coffee shops that I like.. so stay tuned ;-)

i dont like starbucks

Shnainu said...

Try Tully's its the best.. ( I think you can find it in the U.S (West Coast) and Japan. They both were established in Seattle (The mother of "fast-coffee" shops) and they are really competing with Starbucks especially on the cold drinks category. So.. if you passed by some Tully's place.. just get inside and try some of their drinks!

my fave drinks varies 3ala the coffee shop..
Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf- Caramel Latte (hot or iced.) & Caramel Iced Blend..
