    I suppose good coffee is coffee that isn't excessively bitter....not that there's anything wrong with that lol unless you're drinking coffee :)

    Moving from the Nescafe instant they had been serving Starbucks is a huge step up.

    :) But it's still subjective. I really like Starbucks coffee. At the end of the day Starbucks is extremely popular so many people will be buying it.

    :thumbsup2 Exactly

    I tried my best to not like starbucks-- but as it turns out, for my tastes, they have the best roasters around. And the cost for their beans is very reasonable.

    I was rather the other way around. I wanted to likey but found them too consistently unlikey worthy. Now it's been years since I've been in a Starbucks.

    They got to have some low acid processes. Peet's is my favorite but I can't drink it as it tears up my stomach. Sumatran from Starbucks is no issue at all.

    more heavily roasted means less acidity but it does increase the sourness/ bitter taste for most people.

    I know this is an older post, but I agree wholeheartedly. I drink Starbucks, but it is something I do first thing, by the time I get in the park I'm more interested in hitting the attractions rather than sitting down and drinking coffee. Unlike water or a soda, coffee is something you drink slow so grabbing one between rides is not an option. Open shops at the resorts and let me get my cup of coffee on my way to the parks.

    Same here. The year I lived in Florida I worked at a Starbucks. One thing I learned because they roast their beans longer, their coffee also has less caffeine as it burns out.

    Perfectly stated. It doesn't have to be Starbucks for me, but the coffee they were serving (if you could call it that) was not drinkable.

    What Would Walt say. I think he would tell Roy why are we serving this swamp water coffee. And just as he used corporate sponsors as other people noted he would find the best way to get the job done. As a note I was just there for two weeks and the Coffee and the breakfast sandwiches were a welcome start to the keys to the Kingdom tour.:thumbsup2

    :rotfl2: Indeed! The first time I had WDW Coffee, I sent it back, thinking that there was something wrong with it. When it tasted the same the second time, I figured it was just that location. When I tried another location later, I realised it was just WDW coffee. So excited Starbucks is at MK and Epcot.

    I understand the logic behind wanting a Starbucks at resorts before parks... But I'm one of those people (I guess few?) who stop at Starbucks usually in the afternoon, for an iced beverage. Whether it be iced coffee or a shaken tea, it's nice for an after-work pick me up to get through the rest of the day.

    That being said, I can see myself stopping by Main Street or Fountainview for my usual, to keep me up for some EMH ;)

    I am in your boat as well. I will sometimes pop in for an iced tea or an iced latte of some sort. That I could see myself doing onsite, but typically I like to have my coffee (hot) on the way to the park and be done by gate open so that way I can concentrate on the rides. An iced drink, doesn't take that long to consume.
