Does anyone also think that Starbucks HK's coffee is really bad?

    @Hull, but you have your own finance institution, so you are the real man

    What does a "real" man require, as opposed to an "unreal" man?

    Amen.

    I've had good coffee and I've had bad coffee - Starbucks is not bad. I am there every day at 7:30am before work.

    Now if I could only train them "Mon, Wed, Fri" - Latte. "Thu, Tue" - Americano or something like that .. I'd be set.

    I don't care what car I have as long as it gets me from A to B safely and comfortably

    I have no idea what spec my computer is, I wouldn't even know what the spec meant if I did

    I like my watch to tell the correct time and the brand means nothing to me

    My wife buys my clothes from the market stalls

    Am I the only pleb on here?

    A real man does not require anything!

    Starbucks is not my favourite as I prefer the independant, smaller coffee shops, but it seems to improved over the years from when their coffee tasted burnt. However, Uncle Russ coffee, ugh, tastes burnt, too bitter. Not from strength of the brew but quality of the beans.

    No I can relate to most of those. I think it must means you are mature, thrifty and happy in your own skin.

    I think my scare tactics worked because my husband now avoids eating Maccas, but he is not a big fan of Starbucks either but if desperate, will drink the coffee. ( yes, I also buy some of his and my clothes from the markets.)

    The best coffee can be found in the independent Italian cafes in Australia.

    I don't rate any of the chains, Starbucks/Pacific/etc...if I had to name a favourite it would be McCafe and that includes the cakes.

    Overpriced.

    I enjoy several cups of strong Nescafe Blend43/Red Cup every day and I'm happy with those...I normally carry a small jar of it with me when I travel as some countries have appalling coffee (IMO okay!), Bali for example...yuck! Just give me hot water! ;-)

    So sad, Hullexile. No face for you.
