Topic: Starbucking..... (2 msgs / 62 lines)
1) From: Tim TenClay
I don't know how many of you the mag "coffee" -- I subscribed a while
ago in a desperate attempt (as I explained to my wife) "to encourage
this kind of thing."  It's still young.  But page 57 has an interview
with a guy named "Winter" -- His thing is to try to visit every
starbucks...can you imagine?
Wow.  ugh.
I just thought you'd all "love" it.....
His website?http://www.starbuckingmovie.com (It's not a competitor
to our host, so I hope I'm not doing a faux pas...)
Grace and Peace,
  `tim

2) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
I just returned from Chiapas last night. Coffee in Mexico is, at 
best, weak. In rural areas there is nothing but instant coffee in the 
supermercados. So when I saw a Starbucks in the Mexico City airport I 
thought at least I would get some flavor (and it wouldn't be 
instant). The later was true, but as for flavor, no. And it was a 
Kenya! I have been happy (at least as far as coffee while traveling) 
with Starbucks single origin offerings. I remember a Brazil and a 
Colombian Narino that would seem marginal if I was at home, but quite 
nice for being on the road... where all expectations are lower. 
Anyway, this Kenya was flat as lakebed the city lies in, and only 
with extreme mental concentration could I even theorize that it was 
really a Kenya. Oh well. Anyway, the temperature shifts from tropical 
Tapachula to the nippy Sierra Madre nights, and then back to the 
hot/cool SF November has left me with a cold ... and I am trying to 
cup my way through it as best I can - I have like 40 samples to get 
through today. Back to work ...
