Starbucks: A Broken Bond

Starbucks Coffee has raised their prices, yet again. A letter to my once great lover:

Dear Starbucks,

I have something to tell you… I have been cheating on you with Caribou Coffee. It’s not me Starbucks, it’s you. But seriously, how could you? We had such a great relationship. What have you done? You are so tasty, and yet, the price increase somehow makes me incapable of swallowing your delicious goodness. It was all a lie, and quite frankly, it’s not attractive anymore. I feel like I can no longer be monogamous and must venture out to try other things. I need to be free to see other coffees. I hate to part ways but it’s for my wallet’s own good.

Sincerely,

Crying In My Coffee

    • Haha nice. A lot of the people who work there have no idea why either. It’s corporate. Like when I worked at Panera and we raised our prices, I had to deal with the angry customers and I had nothing to tell them, except say “i’m sorry.” LoL

  1. I’ve always preferred Tim Horton’s to Starbucks, though the cost of either is a bit expensive for me on a daily basis. I’ve gotten to the point where I’ll just rely on gas station coffee if I need caffeine in the morning. Even if it isn’t quite as good as chain coffee, the $3-$4 price difference more than makes up for it.

  2. I used to work for Starbucks and this was a great post…
    I completely agree and cannot tell you how many complaints I had to deal with because of Starbucks being such a greedy little monkey.
    tsk tsk tsk
