Is it the actual coffee you like or the atmosphere of a SB's café ? If it is the latter, I can guarantee you that you can make coffee that is equally delicious or even better.I confess to being a Starbucks fan, but I'm doing my darndest to cut back, mostly for financial reasons. I haven't had one in a couple of weeks, so that's pretty good. I got some Starbucks gift cards for Christmas, but I'm going to stretch them out as long as possible. I figure I can make them last most of the year if I go only once every few weeks.
