I’m on a quest to find the best tasting cuppa coffee at the best price on Cedar Hill. From where I sit this morning I can walk about a minute in each direction and find several cups of coffee. Here we go… a cuppa coffee for the common man, woman, person, friend, mom, dad, boyfriend, girlfriend, Bella dog.. no Bella dog not for you.
Today, Monday Dec 12: Starbucks on Cedar
Normally $1.65 but free today, paid for by Key Bank. How nice of them. I wonder how much the CEO makes at Key, does she know about this free coffee. Nice way to start the investigation.
Three sugars. Smidge of half and half. The color is ok.
At the half and half condiments bar I picked up a free download from the ever present in cuteness “The New Girl”, Zooey Dechanel’s rock band “She and Him”… Getting distracted thinking of her recent divorce from the guy from Death Cab for Cutie. So depressing how much useless media stays parked in my mind. Can I delete that?
Ok, the coffee…Seems ok. Kinda watery. Not much depth. In my endeavors to review the cup of coffee for the common woman I have to learn more terms… several pop out at me in the shop. From where I’m sitting I can see the well designed pounds of coffee on the shelf next to me. Dark? Is this cuppa dark? No. Earthy, balanced, bold….. Not really. Somewhat carmelly, due to the three turbinado sugars I grant you.
Holiday Frank Sinatra plays in the background, that’s always nice and now the lovely Paul Simon… Graceland…
Coffee – yes. I get distracted easily in Starbucks. I heard an employee once tell me Starbucks’ big goal is to provide a sense of place and community. They do that well. I just don’t think the $1.65 cuppa coffee for this common woman is very good. It was a perfect price and that’s a treat indeed.
Ok, is the word I keep circling. It’s ok. I hope I have better coffees in my future this week.
Next on the list:
Myxx nightclub? (Sure why not)
Do I dare try Zoss in their tiny styrofoam cups… We’ll see.
