I like my coffee at home in the AM
I'm not those freaks that have to go to starbucks and watch people on line when drinking coffee
I travel frequently internationally and everywhere I go, SBUX is always full. I like them b/c their drinks are the same in every country. This will be a $400 + stock in the next few years!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
This may come as a shock, but let me share a secret with you: no one really cares where you have your coffee, or if you even have any period. Starbucks is always jam packed and people go there for a whole bunch of different reasons.
I drink Pilon and La Llave auto-drip at home and bring it with me. I will not say SBUX is a fad. Its proof that the customers are dumb with their money. Long lines at SBUX just proves Americans are overpaid. When I see this company suffering, that is when you will know that globalization has reached the point where income and wages in the developed world have stopped coming down and Americans are smarter with their money.
I usually have coffee at home in AM - sometimes Starbucks beans and sometimes else. Some other times I will get coffee at Starbucks or Seattles Best. i like Starbucks - stores have a nice vibe and good products. Coffee a little better than Seattles Best and much better then Dunkin Donuts.
