I too have never cared for the over roasted taste of Starbucks 
coffee.  BUT.... a month or two back, they had a coffee tasting at the 
local *$ and I discovered that *$ actually DOES have some acceptable 
coffee.  Surprise, surprise!  It's just that they don't usually serve it as 
their house brew.  But they said that you can order a cup of ANY of their 
coffees at any time and they will do a presspot for you.
The only bad part is that I seem to have misplaced the literature I got 
that had the two coffees that I liked.  They were both  perfectly roasted 
to about city or full city and were close competitors to my favorite home 
roasted CRLM.  I know one was a central American.  I'll have to find those 
flyers!

Paul.......  I'll bet one of the was the El Salvador.  They had a "Black
Apron" exclusive from ES.  Tom's was better at a quarter of the cost.

Could have been.  I saved the sheets for the two I liked but have misplaced 
them.  Turns out that I asked today and they will make you a presspot of 
anything but it costs about $3.50.  But it is good to know that they A) 
actually DO have some decent coffee and B) you can get a presspot made to 
order if you want it.
Frankly, I don't drink coffee at *$ but I DO drink their lattes.... our 
local *$ makes decent espresso, at least when cut with steamed milk.  By 
comparison, the local Carribou makes really NASTY espresso.  Carribou has 
great (and relatively authentic.... I think) scones, though.  Too bad they 
aren't next door to each other.....

Scones are about the easiest thing possible to bake. Just make your own 
and take them to work. The only tricky part (and it's not very tricky, 
really) is not to let the butter melt before they go in the oven.

Paul,   Just yesterday, i went to visit a friend who works at a Caribou.
His co-worker made me a press-pot, same price as a cup 'o joe, $1.60.  She
let me pick the beans, so i went w/ their Kenya AA ($14.95/lb.) and Guat.
Antigua ($11.95/lb.) 50/50.  You could've picked me up off the floor, it was
that good!  The beans and the preparation!  I've done that blend at home,
and can't say mine was much better if at all, other than the fact that mine
cost about 25 to make.  I had no idea that they were that high on the
beans, tho.

Kenya + Guat is my new 'favorite' treat at home too. That's my
breakfast blend, just to get me going!

Wow, I'll ave to try that.  I've been in a CRLM rut for a couple years at 
home.  I have a CARE package arriving from Tom pretty soon with a couple 
other varieties, but I didn't order those.  Maybe I can talk someone at 
Carribou into doing a presspot......

Actually the kenya that Caribou had at telegraph and maple (near where 
the ryder cup was for non detroit area people) from the fetco's  (i 
think that waht they use) was execellent also.

The nice thing about Kenyan's & Guat's are that they are relatively
inexpensive, and great for everyday drinking as origins. Together,
it's like milk & cookies, peanut butter & jelly,...just goes great
together ! And you can usually find both 'types' at most coffee
houses...you might get a weird look from the 18 or 19 year old
'barista' working the bar, but tell them to make a little extra, &
it'll be on the menu in the morning ;-)
