Gimme Caffeine

I worked for Starbucks for almost three years. I used to love their stuff. However,
Starbucks switched to those semi-automatic espresso machines. Their espresso shots now taste bland; they lack the complexity and depth of flavor of the old La Marcozza machines. Now I get whatever bold they are brewing.

When they started, they introduced Americans to a fairly good espresso but as they grew they morphed into McCoffee. What's with that? I now try to find little indie cafes that do the real thing. There's nothing like an espresso con panna to sooth the soul!

They still have great music though.
