Starbucks to Raise Prices

Life will be a little tougher for the preppies who saunter into local Starbucks stores every day and spend much more for a cup of coffee than it is worth. Starbucks, a company that wants to expand, has been experiencing a bit of a financial hard time so they have decided to raise the price of coffee by 9 cents a cup. That might not sound like a lot but when one considers that a second mortgage is required to buy coffee at their shops, it is adding insult to injury.

I am an avid coffee drinker. I drink quite a bit of coffee each day and I am perfectly happy drinking plain black coffee. I have never liked Starbucks coffee, regardless of the price. It does not have a good taste and smells to me as if the beans were burned rather than roasted. I can’t imagine why people drink it every day except for some sort of twisted status symbol.

I guess the preppies will have to suck up that 9 cents if they want to keep their parking spot at the firm.

Here is the link to a funny parody about coffee that seems to fit the Starbuck’s price increase (click the link in the middle).
