Starbucks is “opposing Ethiopia’s efforts to trademark the names of its most famous coffee regions Sidamo, Yirgacheffe and Harar.”
Be thankful coffee doesn’t grow in California.
Forget corporate coffee, roast your own beans instead. I’ve been doing it for a while and always get huge compliments on my coffee. Fresh-roasted tastes much better and it’s easy to do. Besides, Starbucks almost burns their beans thus what you’re tasting is the roast, not the bean. Why bother?
