"McDonald's coffee came out better than Starbucks in another Consumer Reports survey - but the perception of Starbucks as superior is so firmly entrenched that McDonald's would find it extremely difficult to overcome."
Well, I and a friend ventured to Wayne's Coffee a while back... their excuse of coffee was bitter, and cost so much that we should have had the cups for ourselves too... returned the sludge and left... wondered how the heck are so many people sitting around drinking the stuff. 2 cups of coffee, 2 croissants and a small bottle of lemonade cost €10!

To think that my town has a private bakery shop, where you get a cup of coffee, a croissant, and a wiener pastry for €2,50... the coffee is always fresh, and the cups are more ergonomic. And they never complain that they would have to raise their prices for any reason. And nobody regards them as a high end coffee shop in any sense.
