Starbucks blinks

Starbucks - EthiopiaBig Green gives in on the Ethiopia coffee-bean-name controversy. I guess if you talk the PC talk, you’ve got to walk it, too. The result will be higher prices for the coffee beans in question — Sidamo and Harar — at the farmer level. Will Starbucks “pass on” the extra cost to consumers? If it can, it will, of course. If it can’t, it won’t. And everything in between.

  1. Speaking of Starbucks, I ordered a Venti White Chocolate Mocha this afternoon and the barista accidently gave me a Grande. When I mentioned this, he took it back, poured it into a Venti cup, topped it off with milk and whipped cream. When he gave it back he told me Starbucks little secret: a Venti White Chocolate Mocha is the same as a Grande White Chocolate Mocha, but only more diluted. Which makes me wonder, is the Grande the same as the Tall, but with more milk?

    Now I know why my lactose intolerance kicks in every time I order the Venti White Chocolate from Starbucks.
