The Starbucks near my work has a daily trivia question. The first person to answer correctly gets a free coffee. Here is today's question:

I think it's a cafe exclusive to the US.

I don't think we (UK) have it.

Wow. You have no idea how great it is to hear someone ask that! Starbucks is a chain of little shops that sells coffee - overpriced coffee. Probably millions of people in the U.S. are addicted to it. They are located just about everywhere; I can actually walk to THREE Starbucks shops from my home. They've become sort of a joke because of how many they are and how loyal theire customers are.

Starbucks is the secret lair of the infamour Doctor Evil. Its a small seattle based operation dealing in special gourmet coffee from which his profits are 5 fold......

Actually from what I've heard Starbucks is supposed to have twice the caffeine of regular coffees. Maybe that's why I am the way I am :mrgreen: :shock: We even got our own plant here in York so you know it's pretty fresh.

It's not exclusive to the US, it's taking over the world, Pinky! :twisted: Sorry. No, there's one in Bradford, Leeds ... and that's just near me. The Bradford outlet is upstairs from Waterstone's. A perfect combination - the smell of coffee, and books :wink:

Wow, you must not get to London often Skav. When I was there visiting last year, there amount of Starbucks was almost as bad as the level in Manhattan! They are everywhere! Second biggest chain in London next to Pret I would think.

So did you win the coffee Mike, or had someone beaten you to it?

Yea, thinking back on it, I shouldn't have just assumed you were in London often. Not knowing where you are in England, it could be quite a trek.

But yea, its not a store you WANT to have in your neighborhood, cause it has a tendancy of destroying mom and pop shops.
