Topic: Pikes Place Coffee (4 msgs / 69 lines)
1) From: Coffee
Hi,
I'm drinking some Pikes Place coffee from Starbucks as I type this.  
It's actually not a bad coffee. There is nothing really to distinguish  
it's origin (it is a blend afterall). But it is clearly not over- 
roasted or over brewed. No burnt, bitter or off flavors. Nothing  
really stands out, but nothing objectionable either. It's good enough  
to get by if you find yourself with out any home roasted coffee.

Was this one of the promotional free cups?  Did it draw a crowd?

A couple of guys from our office went to pick up coffee and other  
coffee-related drinks at Starbucks, but they showed up too early. They  
were trying to waste time ordering all the "milk" drinks first, but  
they still ended up 5 minutes early and Starbucks wouldn't give them  
any free coffee. Interestingly, perhaps because of the promotion, they  
only had the Pikes Place on drip. No other coffees available. He says  
there was a long line forming out the door and down the sidewalk by  
the time they left.

Good to know. I was up very late last night and overslept, missing the  
tasting at Starbucks.  On the Nightline segment, I did notice on a bag  
a "Best by" date of late Nov. '08, which tells me that if this is a  
very recent rollout, Starbucks roasts eight months in advance--so  
subtracting eight months from the pull date is a rough way of  
guesstimating the roast date of a bag of Starbucks.  Suspect, though,  
that as the weeks roll by there won't be fresher bags on the shelves  
until this initial batch is sold out, so it may cease to be a viable  
emergency homeroast substitute sooner rather than later.
