Starbucks Complaint - Pike Peak Coffee
BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- For the past several years I've stopped in to a Starbucks in the afternoon for a cup of dark-roast coffee. A few weeks ago, I was told that Starbucks no longer brews dark-roast coffee after 12:00 -- a corporate wide decision. The young woman behind the counter told me that Starbucks had decided coffee drinkers didn't need the extra boost of dark roast in the afternoon and that the Pike's Peak brew would be sufficient.
Since when did Starbucks decide they could dictate what roast I want or need in the afternoon. Sorry, but I prefer dark roast and will now look to other coffeehouses to satisfy my afternoon fix.
