Starbucks Confession

I don't like Starbucks's ground coffee.

I know! Everyone loves Starbucks (myself included) but for me it's only for specialty drinks, and even then I prefer Bella Latte (gasp)

I'm not a wuss, the coffee isn't too strong (my family was in auto body repair I know strong), it's too bitter. IMHO it has a strong acidic taste that keeps me from enjoying it, and because I drink my coffee black, there is no masking it.

I drink it when necessary because let's face it Starbucks Coffee is better than no coffee. As a rule though I prefer just about any other coffee.

I give props though, I love their Mochas, and I love their baked goods. It's still great for breakfast and coffee dates. I just avoid the actual coffee.

Do you have something that you just don't like that everyone else does?

I'm writing a post about things I can't stand that other people love. I tried Starbucks for the first time when I was 18, and didn't start drinking it more than once a year until moved to Alaska and now there's one on every corner. It took some getting used to, but I also do mochas, lattes, and fraps, not drip coffee.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Starbucks lattes!! If i make coffee from home i always use the liquid coffee creamers like caramel macchiato. Its more like a cup of cream with a touch of coffee added.

iced mocha is all I get from the place, I like the random coffees we get from fresh market but I don't like them black, I need some creamer in there!
