Starbucks price increase coming soon


As the AP mentions, J.M. Smucker Co. recently announced that prices for its Folgers and Dunkin’ Donuts coffee brands would drop, thanks to “sustained declines in the green coffee futures market.” But Starbucks is more than a coffee shop. There’s the food, the rent, the marketing, and an escalating budget for black markers that baristas use to incorrectly write your name on cups. All of that costs money and all of that factors into the price hike.

Alfonso Ribeiro, the Carlton Dance, and Starbucks

So there is a new Starbucks commercial featuring a clip of Alfonso Ribeiro doing the Carlton Dance, and it is pure awesome.

I was going to complain about the guy taking upĀ the big table in Starbucks with his stuff spread out, but I realize I have been that asshole plenty of times, so I will keep my comments to myself.

For reasons I can’t explain, I get excited when this shows up on my computer screen.

Screenshot 2014-01-15 at 2.49.15 PMGood afternoon! I’ll be here all night studying and doing homework because this class I’m taking with Dr FUN ain’t no joke.



I make myself leave the house when it’s time to get work done, because I get next to nothing accomplished when I sit in my house all day. I need to be away from my household distractions and in the company of other people trying to get shit done.

My normal work space is the local Starbucks, and although the one on Crenshaw and Coliseum is within walking distance of my house, I prefer to go to the new one near USC, because it’s a lot more clean, quiet and structured.

The Crenshaw Starbucks is like a daytime club; the Expo/Fig Starbucks is like a library that allows us to have our food and drinks and occasionally plays good music.

Anyway, with all my Starbucks visits and Starbucks gift cards, I managed to move myself up to the Green level in Starbucks rewards which means that all of my refills while I am in the shop are free.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is #Winning
