    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.

    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

    HAHA!

    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.


    Meh...

    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.

    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 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.
