If you haven’t noticed the crowds by your local Starbucks, they were giving out free coffee today (starting at different times at different locations), their new Pike Place Roast. I asked Lon to pick me up a cup on his way home from work if the wait wasn’t too long, and by around 6:30 PM, there was no one on line. The Pike Place Roast tastes less burnt than their regular coffee but it’s still very acidic. It’s still not something I would buy. That’s just my two cents. Here’s what a lot of others think….

They seem to be using their old logo again, but the words are different, reading Starbucks, Fresh Roasted Coffee. I’m kind of turned off by the fat mermaid but more importantly, I’m still turned off by their coffee.
