I love my Starbucks and I guess I'm there at least 6 days a week. The ones we've had in Spain are not quite as good as the ones here. I've no idea whether they use the same coffee beans and milk of course. Here is costs me £5.20 for two Lattes whereas in Alicante they charge €10 for the same which is a lot more.
In the US,Starbucks is cheap and the coffee is great. My daughter and I decided to try Starbucks when it came to Chester. We went up to the counter,and despite there being three members of staff behind the counter,no one offered to serve us. We stood there for a minute or two and then walked out,completely ignored. The shop was not busy at all. I would never go back there.
