I Must Admit, It's a Good Cuppa Coffee
I'm no fan of Starbucks but, I must admit, the new Pike Place Roast is a good cup of brewed coffee; a straight, no-chaser, strong yet smooth, black coffee good.
People either love or hate that Starbuck's taste most often described as "burnt" or order a polymorphic concoction of milk and syrup to hide it. But look at the original logo hanging above the first Starbucks in the Pike Place Market; it says coffee, so shouldn't they be selling a good cup of coffee?
A really bad haiku on a good cup of coffee:
Coffee, a good cup,
coursing caffeine through my veins;
awake morning, noon, night!
