I took a peek at the other threads about Starbucks, and surprisingly this is the most civil of those threads.

I do caution those who are partaking in the heat of discussion - certain topics have been banned in the past. I don't think we want coffee added to the list

Starbucks seems to be a very heated topic Who knew there was so much hatred over a cup of coffee?

it's because Starbucks (or fourbucks or *$) creates a lot of resentment among certain people. for some it is because it is too expensive, for some the company is too progressive in its stance on social issues, for some it is too yuppie, for some it is fancy drinks for fancy people. i'm sure there are other reasons.

amazingly, a lot of people would prefer to have nescafe served.

No one is targeting you personally, however there are a few people (myself included) who have posted most rigorously on this issue. Those people will get some quotes and replies then anyone else simply because of the sheer number of posts.
Repeating is repeating, and everyone feels what they post is gold, obviously, it is their opinion. I used you as example, personally have nothing against number of your posts. And yes, I was targeted personally as poster counts my posts and not yours or anyone else from your side and you know you guys repeat same thing, nothing new is said, maybe even more then me as I joined debate later then others. BTW, I never said I dislike SB, you saw my posts, you should know that by now.

If we're talking about an expensive corporation, check out Disney! Disney isn't a charity and to holiday there is very expensive. Compared to a Venti Latte... well there is no comparison.

I must admit, I don't understand the resentment. If you don't like the coffee, don't buy it. However Starbucks is not that expensive (Disney charge the same as Starbucks does for an iced coffee ($4) however Disney offers you 16oz, Starbucks gives you 31oz)

If people prefer Nescafe, it will still be available, however so will Starbucks. I won't drink Nescafe, you don't have to drink Starbucks. No one is forcing anyone to buy it or pour it down someones throat.

I'm not reading that at all... What I read is people are afraid of change. They're comfortable with the way things are and worry the change will remove the elements of the MSB they have grown comfortable with.

I worry too, but I know Disney has changed many things for the best and we just have to put our faith out there that they'll do a great job.

I'm looking forward to Mint Mocha Lattes during the holidays and a beautiful seating area Hoping this will be combined with my son's favorite over-sized cinnamon roll so he wants to sit with me for awhile.

Yeah, I don't understand it either. But it's there. For some reason Starbucks is a lightning rod.

I know you never said you disliked SB, my post was more general except the part I meant for you. Nothing personal.

I understand some people love Starbucks, some hate it (whether for the coffee or other reasons) and most people couldn't care less! Certain people are taking it to the extreme (not you specifically) but cancelling holidays or saying the whole magic is ruined. Starbucks coming in is no different to Coca Cold, Edy's Ice Cream, Kodak or anything else that is clearly present on Main St.

I agree, there are a bunch of folks in the afraid of change camp. but there have also been a whole bunch of posts about how it would be better if it was dunkin, i hate starbucks and everything it stands for, omg it's so expensive, it's bitter and burnt, etc.

Never had their cinnamon roll but love their homemade icecream sandwiches (the one without the paper icecream bag, not the prepackaged kind). Yes, I too hope they keep the Victorian era of Main Street.

I never supported extreme cases but you know, those are their opinions, no better nor worse then yours or mine. And I do not think all the opposition is because of SB anyway. You know my position and many feel just the same. I know for some MSB is just another store to buy pastries, for some it is much more. Different people, different opinions, and it is totally fine as long as we respect each other and act as adults.

VERY excellent point. To say the magic is ruined is a little extreme. Esp since SB isnt even open and running yet. We dont know what it'll look like. So ppl need to chill, have faith in disney, and wait to see what happens. Good point about Edy's & Coca Cola btw!

Nescafe, what a dismal thought!

I don't get it, it's a bakery, I'm more upset about the baked goods, the pastries, the croissants, the cinnamon rolls, etc., but everybody is stuck on the coffee debate!

There's a reason Disney is "Coke" country, they gave Disney the best deal, and I'm sure that's how Starbucks got their way in! Disney should however retain the name of Main st. Bakery, it's an institution!
