I am not a coffee connoisseur by any means. In fact, one year ago I never even drank coffee. My trip to Costa Rica last year got me started on drinking coffee. Anyway, I have been making trips to Starbucks here and there and enjoying their coffee. Its not bad in my opinion and we all know that access to a Starbucks is easy. Especially around here. I will never know how 2 or 3 Starbucks can successfully exist in the same shopping complex but they do it all the time. Has anyone seen the movie 'Best in Show'? There is a funny scene with Parker Posey as her and her husband explain how they met at Starbucks. Not the same one mind you, they went to different Starbucks across the street from each other and found each other looking through the window.
Anyway, Patty has always stated that Peet's is a far better place to get coffee. I was sure I would not tell the difference but wow. Their coffee is much better. People should try it out and see for yourself. I only know of Peets being downtown and at the Tannasbourne shopping center. I got some coffee their today and noticed the long drive through line at Starbucks across the street and only a short line at Peets. Suckers!!!
