Har, har!!!

See, *$’s is having a very hard time competing now that they’ve lost a few key aspects to great coffee. One – they can’t produce the great quality that many micro roasters can. Two – they have lost the traditional feel of a coffee house through migrating from true espresso machines over to simple push button machines…..hardly the feel of a great espresso! They may comeback—only time will tell!

This is really interesting.. 61 shops is a lot! Sounds like company is having serious problems. Anyhow, I still keep my thumbs up and hope they will open a shop in my country as well..

Not surprising since a lot of coffee experts are opening their own cafes or coffee shops. And I agree with the first commenter. Starbucks has lost most of that traditional, homey feel of a coffee place and has become more commercialized.
