nerudite said:Noooooooo! Will Seattle's Best still have the same coffee? Their coffee is so much better (less acidic/burnt) than Starbucks. If they switch, I'll be really sad. Although I guess up here I can always get a shot at the Second Cup.
Habanero said:... What's kinda funny, a friend worked for Starbucks, hated it, and left to manage Seattle's Best.. and now he's working for Starbucks again.

Huston said:that is ironic, but fittingly not surprising. i had a bank chase me once. I could not get a way from a particular bank. they kept eating up the local banks, i would switch, they would gobble. Then on day I joined a competing large bank. They gobbled the bank I was once running from. funny how it worked out, and i never ever did escape that bank.
