    Starbucks is by far my most expensive habit.

    So I guess the question is will you be donating $5 to the cause?

    Hell no. If Starbucks wants to donate money, they can donate it off the top of my overpriced latte, not glad hand me to further extend their influence and profits, by donating to a cause that lends money out, and expects a return. I'd love to see that group's board, investor and startup income persons list.

    Never got into it.

    A cheap ass cup of coffee from any gas station around town is just fine for me.

    I didn't for a long time, and when it got too expensive, I started making my own with a cheap espresso machine.

    But when I am able, I prefer theirs or Einstein brothers. Usually Starbucks because I can get small 12 oz, instead of a 16oz.

    Since I usually don't eat breakfast, the milk additive to the espresso serves as a replacement "meal."

    Plus, they open at 530.

    I cook breakfast in bulk on either Sunday night or Monday night. 5 or 6 sausage patties or bacon or ham or whatever and a can of flaky biscuits. Then, when I'm still sleepwalking at 5 every morning, I just pop it in the microwave. It's not even that good but it works.

    I have to eat breakfast.

    not exactly the type of jobs we really need at this point.

    Ask the good folks with the Seattle Supersonics how Howard Schultz created jobs. Did I say create? I meant destroy.

    I just make coffee at home or work and pour a shitload of creamer in it and call it a latte.

    In your opinion, what type of jobs do we need?

    I rotate between them and Dunkin Donuts and make my own at home every day.

    Off topic, but have you tried the hashbrowns at Dunkin? They are freaking ridiculous.

    I wouldn't give them any extra.

    Einstein coffee is fantastic.

    But I still make mine at home.

    If you want a cheap cafe au lait at starbucks, just order a double shot of espresso in a tall cup and add the milk yourself at the condiment bar
