Doesn’t anybody know any coffee other than Starbucks?
Aloha kakahiaka! (Good morning in Hawai’ian) Here in Ruidoso, New Mexico we just say “howdy.” Happy Tuesday morning and greetings to all you coffee fiends. That’s fiends not friends. I know how you really feel about coffee! The purpose of this group is to unite coffee lovers, especially lovers of Kona coffee, and perhaps learn a little about coffee and all the benefits of coffee at the same time.
I had a lot of folks come up to the Cowboy Coffee Saloon at the Ruidoso Christmas Jubilee this past weekend and mention that they did…or didn’t...like Starbucks coffee. A few said that it tasted bitter or burned or, as one coffee drinker put it, “overroasted.” Well, the Kona Cowboy Coffee Company certainly isn’t competing with Starbucks but I must say that one of the major reasons Starbucks became successful was due to their overroasted profiles - a level of darkness that provided amazing consistency by covering up (or roasting out) flavors and nuances of a particular origin. Every cup has a trademark Starbucks "bite" from overroasting, regardless the origin of the coffee.
To this day, millions of consumers think that Starbucks, or Peet's, (or Folgers or Maxwell House for that matter) is how coffee is supposed to taste. That makes at least a little bit of sense as those coffees have very distinct and singular flavor points that most anyone with a decent palate can pick out as being theirs and theirs alone.
Another coffee blogger has mentioned that Starbucks built its core success on making people who essentially don't like coffee believe that they actually did. To achieve this, they optimized a roasting style that held up under heavy amounts of milk and flavored syrups. The kind of beverages where coffee is a suggestive ingredient rather than the main show.
You be the judge.
