Thanksgiving Blend

I have a love/hate relationship with Starbucks.

I love the mobile office aspect, the free wi-fi and the atmosphere.

The coffee you say? Meh.

I am a Peet’s Bean fan and I think there was a noticeable decline in the quality when Peet left off doing the roasting of the beans for them.

Having said that, it is a definite step up from gas station coffee and since my wife brought me a cup, you will not find me looking the proverbial gift horse in mouth.

What she brought me was a cup of the new Thanksgiving blend and I was really pleasantly surprised! While it is a darker roast and has the mildly bitter finish I associate with Starbucks, it was MUCH lower in acid content than most of their blends.

Recommended.

Also, here is someone else’s take on what they think of Starbucks. Thanks to Darcy at Tom Bihn for the link.
