If this was emailed to me this morning. If this has been posted before, I'm sorry.
It's a really old story. Not sure if it is previously posted and it isn't really true. I don't shop at Starbucks because I don't need a $5 cup of coffee.
Montrose you beat me to it. Snopes says FALSE...
iphil, you haven't been sending money to anybody in Nigeria now, have you?
Snopes says BS.
Starbucks Grande coffee $1.89+tax=$1.99. refills 54 cent.
If you were paying $5.00 for COFFEE you got took.
I don't even care if it's true. I just don't like Starbucks. Completely separate from their politics, their coffee just isn't that good.
Sometimes I feel bad for people who make their decisions based on unverified chain e-mails.
Usually, I just laugh at them
........any more emails in your inbox that we can help you with??
asks your 'ole pal flipper who never opens anything FW to his inbox
Around here 'six-bucks,' as it's known by some, has a LARGE cup of "basic" coffee for like $2.10 or so with tax INCLUDED.
The convenience stores around here have a the same large size cup, but a different blend of coffee, for $1.60 or so with tax INCLUDED.
Anytime any email brings up 9/11 or asks me not to delete it I know it's BS...just like Starbucks overroasted charcoal *ahem* i mean coffee.
MMMMM Starbucks triple Amercano-2.20
I don't like starbucks but get dragged there by people at work.
This is clearly crap as many starbucks I have been in have a basket to put coffee in to send to the troops. So not only will they send it to them, they handle the shipping.
LOL.. thats not right.
Starbucks is the only place here where they're polite. Everywhere else has tatted up, pierced to hell and back punk kids who are snobbish about their coffee and celebrate their individuality by wearing the same tight-*** jeans.
I don't care WHAT my barista looks like personally but I find the clean cut places more friendly than the "we're snobs about coffee" places.
I've been making my own Espresso for about 10 years
I can say without a doubt that this is a bogus story. I was in Iraq from March of 2003 to March of 2004 and we wrote and received many things from many companies, including Starbucks. Granted, sending bags of whole beans to men who don't have electricity or a grinder can present certain issues, they did send coffee and letters of appreciation.
If I have coffee that my wife or I don't make ourselves, i get it from the gas station across the street from my office building that has surprisingly good coffee.
