This Starbucks uses an automated espresso machine. The shots are very weak and the lattes are bland. They continuously steam the milk in the same pitcher, just adding more milk as needed; a BIG no-no. They charge too much for the quality of the beverage. They need to go back to manually pulling individual shots for the coffee drinks and bring the quality of the drink up to par. The hot beverages are served luke-warm. The ambiance is nil as the shop is too small and it is too cold to be comfortable. It is very sterile looking. For a great tasting latte using fabulously tasting Alterra coffee go to the Country Coffee House on Hwy 167 in Richfield. The trip is worth it. Don't bother with this Starbucks. You will be greatly disappointed. I don't plan to return.
I frequent Starbucks coffee quite often...even purchased a bag of their coffee from the grocery store. This is the ultimate place for a great cup of coffee or coffee-related beverage. If you have'nt tried it yet, you're missing out!
