Coffee at Starbucks

fizzygato fizzygato
I'm trying to find a drink that's coffee-ish tasting, but isn't straight up coffee, but isn't super sweet/ sugarfied. Does anyone have any recommendations?

What is your favorite drink to buy from Starbucks/ what do you think of Starbucks?

Do you think coffee is better made at home or store-bought?

I love the double chocolaty chip latte. Some drinks are better made there.

At Starbucks, I always get a Java Chip Frappuccino. I don't get Starbucks too often though, I usually make coffee at home. At home, I usually make soy mochas.

I prefer going to a local place, but I have friends who LOVE Starbucks - so when I'm with them, I'll get a little something. I just think they're overpriced and really not all that good. It tastes like mass-produced coffee, unlike the local place I go to that has a special house blend.

When I go there, I like the iced coffees personally. But you can make that at home too, I make it at home and it's really easy.

Try asking someone who works there! As long as it's not busy, they should be happy to help you out - have in mind some things you've had there and what you did and didn't like about them. If you know a flavor you like, I'd suggest getting a single grande latte with two pumps of the syrup of your choice.

We drink most of our coffee at home. Every once in a while we get coffee from a coffee bar. Starbucks is ok, but way too expensive.

Starbucks is just okay quality with a high price tag. I prefer Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee.

I'm picky!!! X-) I bought an expensive coffee maker and I only like certain beans and grind my own blah blah blah.. I'm a coffee snob. X-)

Sometimes when it is getting late in the evening, I do about half coffee and half hot chocolate. Tasty, cheap and easy

I am horrible at making coffee at home. I really don't know what it's about. I am a Tim Hortons person through and through! With double cream please

I like Starbucks frappuccinos, but I also enjoy making coffee at home.

I don't know if this will be sweeter than what you're looking for, but Starbucks iced chai lattes ARE REALLY, REALLY GOOD.

I like making my coffee at home with a french press because I can control the strength & bitterness. Then I can add a flavored creamer for sweetness or just plain milk and sugar. I think it's better than at the store because I can save the rest of the coffee in a carafe for later.

Having really tried my hand at iced coffee yet...

At a coffe shop, Cafe latte hot or cold...add syrups or not.

I make Peet's Coffee or Godiva coffee at home. It tastes vastly much better than Starbucks. Trust me, I am doing you a favor.

It depends. I like coffee at Starbucks but it's a rare treat for me.

I don't really like coffee, to be honest. I have always been a tea girl. In order for me to like coffee, it has to practically be candy (whipped cream, caramel, chocolate, lots of soy milk, etc), so I do like Starbucks a lot. But, that said, I don't drink Starbucks a lot because it is expensive, and also, just not too healthy the way I like it. (It's not like I'm drinking black coffee).

I usually like the smaller coffee shops where I live... Starbucks is ok though. At one of the smaller shops, I was introduced to a Flyboy, and I fell in love. It is a chi tea with a shot of espresso. I usually get the biggest cup they have, which seems to be a good ratio of chi and coffee.

Hope this helps!

I don't mind coffee at home, but if I get Starbucks, it'll be a frap.
