Dunkin Donuts is my kind of place !

Starbucks Corp. said Thursday that it planned to raise prices of its lattes, cappuccinos, drip coffee and other drinks by 5 cents, or an average of 1.9 percent. The increase, which goes into effect Oct. 3 at all company-operated stores in the U.S. and Canada, will mark the first time the company has boosted drink prices in two years.
Starbucks also is increasing the price of its coffee beans by about 50 cents per pound, or an average of 3.9 percent. That's the first price increase for whole beans in nine years, spokeswoman Valerie O'Neil said. I never liked Starbucks. I know lot's of you do......I find the service slow, the prices expensive and the quality nasty. That's right. I find the coffee at Starbucks tastes horrible ! I drink Dunkin Donuts. That's right...... In fact I love Dunkin Donuts. I love their coffee and their donuts and bagels. It's always fresh and the prices are very low and very fair. I will only drink Starbucks when there is nothing around, then I will suffer. In NYC, many times you will find me walking into a event with a Dunkin Donut coffee in hand. Starbucks' pricing varies based on the market, ( another words, we pay a whole lot more in NYC ) but the 5-cent price increase will be across the board. Currently, a tall, or 12-ounce, cup of Starbucks coffee costs between $1.40 and $1.65. Twelve-ounce lattes cost between $2.40 and $3.10, depending on the market, and a tall mocha costs between $2.70 and $3.40.
