I had a cup of latte at a nearby Starbucks with my BFF K this morning. My favorite drink is 2 pump Vanilla Latte (iced for summer time!) To tell you the truth, I love coffee, period. It doesn't have to be Starbucks. Actually Dunkin Donuts's iced latte is pretty good. Or a cappuccino after dinner at my favorite restauratns. That makes me very happy.
When K and I were sitting and talking about nothing and everything, we talked about the price of Starbucks coffee. We all know that the price will be going up very soon, again, some say up to 30%. 30%! That's crazy. Is that possible???
I remember there were times my Grande 2pump Latte was $3.65. Then to $3.85. Now? It's $4.11. I don't even want to think about how much it's going to be within a few months. Funny thing is, people complain about it, but still go to the drive through and order the same thing all over again. It's like cigarettes. If you love it, it doesn't matter how expensive it is, you will still pay for it. Right?
I'm not sure how much of raise I'm willing to pay, but $5 for a cup of latte is damn expensive! What do you think everyone? Do you like Starbucks or do you have other favorite place for a nice cup of coffee???
