It is truly amazing to me how this little company that began in a space at
Seattle's famed Pike Place Public Market by hippies has grown to be the
megalomaniacal destroyer of whole civilizations (according to what I am
reading on this listserve). Get a grip. Starbucks continues to grow because
people like the coffee and are willing to part with their money. Personally,
I like Tully's. My advice: keep buying what you like where you like it and
keep those little guys in business they need you. If they grow to more than
one store though, look out! They may be out to take over the world!
PS: Coffee farmers are more likely to be cheated by their own government
than by Starbucks.
