San Jose >Starbucks Coffee
Seattle-based coffee chain lures caffeine addicts with upscale roasts, caramel frappuccinos, shaken iced teas and an extra shot of trendiness..
For many, getting their daily jolt of java has become a daily morning ritual, and the cardboard cup with its infamous green label is the close companion of every coffee aficionado. Busy baristas work seamlessly behind the bar, juggling orders for their strongly-brewed drips and signature hot and cool beverages. While providing a wide selection of coffee specialties, pastries and various coffee related goods, patrons are invited to settle down in comfy armchairs and enjoy their favorite brews amid the chatter of the laidback yet caffeinated crowd.
Music too loud, overcrowded, no seats. Pass.
Customer service - marginal. Music so loud I couldn't even concentrate on what to order. Filled with people, waiting in line, all outdoor seats taken on weekends.
Noticed their store is not very clean too. Fingerprints/germs all over glass; appear hasn't been cleaned in long time. Floors dirty inside and outside. Insufficient parking too. Music blaring on external speakers also. Seem to be over-run, controlled by very young who have no idea about customer service. WAY over-rated cup of joe also. They need to reduce their prices to keep in line with the economy, gas prices, etc.
Peet's Coffee going to be giving them some well deserved compitition in the future :-)
