Yes, I am a coffee snob when it comes to Starbucks.
This is my favorite blend, the Pike Place. It is truly smooth and balanced. It is creamy and nutty. The color is sch a rich caramel. It favors milk, cream, coffee cream, soy or coconut. All of them blend well this this roast especially. I find so many coffees turn a grayish color when you add anything but a heavy cream. Also, this Starbucks coffee can sit on the warmer all morning without turning grayish in color when you add your whitener of choice.
I find even the lighter roasts that do have a higher acidity, still not as acidic as other coffees (like Tim Hortons or McDonalds).
All-In-All. Starbucks truly satisfies all your expectations and more. It is amazing from first sip to last. I love this coffee, Especially the Pike Place which is an All Day Coffee.
