I hate Starbucks. Two very nice coffee shops in my neighborhood closed, presumably because of competition with the nearby Starbucks locations. On the off chance that I do find myself in a Starbucks, the only way I can stomach their bitter burnt coffee is to have one of their fancy coffee drinks. Beware, though. Don't let that yuppy facade fool you. Although coffee itself is low in calories, when it's all fixed up it can become worse than a Big Mac.
