Could Starbucks Coffee be the next Hostess in the not-so-near future?
 
I was thinking about buying some of their stocks, but it seems like Starbucks could be an unhealthy trend that could die out in the future and spell out losses.

I hope so as I don't understand why anyone goes there.

I work in a "professional" career and according to the IRS I'm somewhere in the upper half of US income and I can't afford Starbucks. It's worth noting that it doesn't take much of a salary to be in the "upper half", because the wealth distribution in the US is a joke.

If I can't afford Starbucks, and I make more than Starbucks employees it stands to reason neither can their own employees.

Maybe if businesses paid their employees as much as their shareholders they'd have more customers who could afford what they sell...

Like I really need a four dollar cup of coffee. I think I've been in a Starbucks twice in my life.
Let them go under, the world will go on with out them just fine.
It only took one time behind this guy who has to order a "decaf grande half-soy, half-low fat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread cappuccino, extra dry, light ice, with one Sweet-n'-Low and one NutraSweet," to make me never come back.

Pick your real answer:
1) You can't afford Starbucks because you own a Jeep.
2) You can't afford Starbucks because it isn't what you choose to spend your money on.

I don't buy Starbucks very often. On occasion, I'll pick some up - For the record, on occasion is very minimal. It's probably been 2-3 months since I've had Starbucks. Anyway, the coffee price isn't too bad at a couple bucks for a large. The real trick is when you get the fancy crap. Large latte's are like 4-5 bucks each! It's ridiculous!

McDonald's has a better cup of coffee then Starbucks and I hate McDonald's coffee

A friend makes a better cup of coffee than Starbucks.

Regular coffe is decent when it's between dublin donuts and Starbucks, and if you just get COFFEE, it's not any more expensive.

Uhhhh no. Coffee should be a buck, not a penny more.

ChrisHager 12-12-2012 10:53 AM

I take it you make your own coffee?

I buy my beans from Mariposa Coffee Co - but I grew up just a few miles from them and got hooked. Still costs less than 40 cents for a whole pot brewed at home.
