I feel very fortunate to live in Washington State less than 2 hrs from Seattle, the coffee capital of the world!

Aside from Starbucks there is also Tully's and Seattle's Best Coffee and another italian type coffee house....forgot the name though, don't go there much.

Oof, I hate StarBucks. I guess it doesnt help that the one near me is next to a very artsy college (vassar), and the students kinda act stupid when they come in. Sorta like a modern art show, except without the art, and the people are young and sound stupid.

Hey, me too.....my friend was just up @ my house on Thursday night........he likes to giggle a lot. :D

I'm not from Vancouver BTW.....

Besides that if you have access to a Gloria Jean's, you will clearly see that they're coffee owns. The Mint Chocalate Bomb, is the da bomb!:D

Personally I am not a coffee drinker at all, I prefer tea, and softdrinks. What I like do like however is off the wall coffe like products that have the caffine equivilance of several lines of coke. IE the Frappachinos, frozen mocha drinks and what not.

It's actually a pretty good school. It's just very...weird. Lotta lesbians, which is ok by me, except they are very weird lesbians. And a lot of the guys are gay, which is also ok, except they're very prolific gays, and not picky on who they hit on. Thats not ok by me.

Anyway, I did try a hot cider from StarBucks once. Burned the tip of my tongue so I couldnt taste anything sweet for a week. Kinda ruined the experience...

Taos

Don't limit yourself because of one bad experience.........go try it again. I'm sure you won't be disappointed!!

Darth Groovy
10-21-2002, 04:31 AM
HAHA! I had that happen once too, I never drink hot cider now. There is something about hot cider that just never cools, and the stuff is like hot lead. I do however, like taking apple cider, mixing in equal parts Jack Daniels, Everclear, and Seagram's VO. That is some damn fine drink lads!:D

I love Starbucks, mmm I always go to one about 2 times a day (they're everywhere in NYC), too bad Starbucks is pushing out some of the smaller coffee houses...but their coffee is muy bueno!

Taos
10-21-2002, 09:31 PM
Sounds like a great drink to me Groovy......I'll have to remember that one! :thumbsup:



Hey Orengimomo, you should shorten that sig you've got......just make the size of the letters smaller, thanks. ;)

A Lente sized Mocha Latte with cinnimon, twice a day for the rest of your life....

....And I probably won't live past 25 :D

Starbucks is simply the best (well at least where I'm from), and the espresso shots are a nice jolt of raw caffiene....hehehehehehehehe.......:p

Yeah, that damn hot cider scarred me for life. I took the top off, and there was steam billowing off of it, so I put the top back on and waited for something like 20 minutes. Took a sip, figuring "Hey, 20 minutes is enough for anything to cool down." Yeah, I was mad...

Hot lead is right...

I don't drink coffee, or anything else with caffiene, except for tea when I go out for Chinese food. :D

How many expresso shot's have you had at one time in a drink? My friend had a quad shot and was up the whole night rearanging his room. I have only had 3 but after 30 minutes of finishing my Chocolate Brownie I was sleepy.

I was also wondering Orengimomo are you Hispanic?

We do have one or two Starbucks over here but since September the 11 I have been boycotting them. Didn't they charge the firemen to use their water that the firemen were using for the victims?

I have refused to go there ever since.

Anyway, coffee houses don't seem very popular over here, which is a shame. Any other England questions?

Does anyone outside America post/play jk2?

I have never been to a Starbucks, Tim Horton's all the way baby!:D I don't usually drink coffee, I prefer Tea, but I have had some Tim's coffee, and it's good. Well, as good as Coffee can taste that is.

And Hurstyboy69, yes, plenty of people outside of the U.S. play JO, and post here. I'm not from the U.S. and there's plenty of others who aren't either.:)

Yah they are the best. I have never had the coffee once but once but it was good. I love the frappicionos. I always get one when I go and it's always a Venti. I wish I could have one right cause I am in school. :(

Guys, is it true that Starbucks were charging the firemen, during the September the 11 disaster, for water for the victims?

I have not used them since, but if it is not true then I don't want to be missing out on coffee! You guys are making it sound better than sex!

Darklighter
10-23-2002, 09:40 AM
Seriously, this coffee is probably a lot better than sex. At least with coffee you can have another one after without getting tired:D (come to think of it, that was a pretty bad pun...if anyone wants to come up with a better one be my guest:Dlol)

And I sincerely hope to god that that statement is not true, I can't imagine it is.
