Starbucks really sucks

Since last fall, I’ve been getting our household coffee beans from which says it offers “the best of the crop while helping to fund next year’s harvest and strengthen small-scale family farms.”

We’ve been really happy with the quality.

It’s easy to loose perspective of how good it is since I drink their coffee every day. Yesterday, for the first time in months, I stopped by a Starbucks for a cup of coffee (I had a gift card).

The drip coffee, which I used to drink somewhat regularly, was amazingly bitter and burnt tasting. Barely palatable. It was a good reminder of how bad most mainstream coffee is, and how much better the coffee I’ve been getting lately is.

  1. Some time you should try roasting your own. It’s really easy to do and the results will open your eyes. Roasted coffee beans are fresh for about 1-2 weeks. Mail order coffee makes it hard to keep within that window.
