Advantages: Great tasting coffee.
Disadvantages: Can be a little expensive
Love them or hate them coffee shop chains are here to stay it would appear and Starbucks is no exception. Now I've tried many different Starbucks in my time, from London to Penrith, Sheffield to Vancouver, Lincoln to Orlando and no matter where you are in the world you can always count on getting the same great tasting coffee.
Well that's not strictly true, although each outlet might use the same coffee blend, the water they use is entirely different, so you're always going to get a slightly different taste to your coffee. Now to me, I can't really tell the diference, but to some people this might make a huge difference in their coffee experience, so just be aware of this when you visit other counties and other countries.
What you can be guaranteed of though is that you'll be able to get an Americano, a Latte, a Cappiccino, a Macchiato, a Frappuccino or one of many other drinks that Starbucks does all in a range of flavours, with or without milk, with or without chocolate sprinkles. You'll also be able to get a range of sandwiches, cookies, muffins, slices of cake and yoghurts. They also sell their own branded coffees and mugs and coffee making machines. Although not all outlets sell all the products, most have a selection in store which you can choose from. You can also be guaranteed of the fact that you'll see the same green and white logo emblazed on the shop front so you'll know you've found a Starbucks.
I enjoy a mug of Starbucks every now and then, but I now always ask for a single shot as I find the two shot standard just too strong. I can be assured that the quality will be the same and the staff always seem friend and polite no matter where I am in the world. Yes they can be a little expensive, but it's always nice to treat yourself every now and then.
