"Starbucks tests $1 cup of coffee
Free refills are also on tap as the Seattle coffee giant responds to increased competition and braces for an economic slowdown that could blunt consumer spending."

...... of Starbucks.

First one about 9 years ago. I think it was a Latte. (?sp))

Second one 6 years. Cappuccino.

Nice, but I didn't think worth the price.

I really like coffee, and drink it black.

it is good but over-priced. I will drink it if someone buys it for me. I am easily bought.

I never routinely buy coffee out. my morning friend, 8 o'clock, french roast, whole bean with caffeine.

when it is on sale; I could drink for 3 months at starbucks with the savings.

a competitor; it was just as good and cheaper.
Not employed by them, but Folger's has upgraded. They have a premium grade with several varieties. We tried it on introductory sale and it was as good as any I've had. We got several cans at $5; it's now about double that. Happy

At home, we like Folger's Columbian.

I'll take Columbian, too.

Somewhere I heard it naturally has less caffeine. Don't know if that is true or not.

But for me, it always tastes good!

I buy whichever one is on sale. Happy

Hmmm....not exactly on every street corner in these parts. How far do we need to drive to get a cup? Happy

My wife and I will get packed up but, with gasoline prices as they are, this better be one fine cup of coffee. See you there. I'll be the one without overalls. Happy

Of the new ones, the Colombian is
by drpruner / January 28, 2008 12:35 PM PST

probably at the weak end of the spectrum for my taste, but it's still very good. We also got the French Roast and the Black Silk. That one will have the highest price regularly.

Hi Doug
by Cindi Haynes / January 29, 2008 11:36 AM PST

According to the little meter on the side of the can, the Columbian should be about the same as the French roast. We like the darker coffees, but they don't seem to carry the darker ones at the store I frequent. Have not even seen the Black Silk here. I'll have to search. Happy
