exactly. Im off to Ethiopia today, which is apparantly where coffee originated.. they have traditional coffee ceremonies where they roast the beans in front of you whilst waving around incense.. and not a Starbucks in sight. Damn shame I dont drink coffee :)

I generally find the coffee very good in Poland. In Ireland, we tend to have more sandwich bars than coffee houses. In poland, you get genuine coffee houses with relaxing atmosphere and surroundings. Starbucks recently came to Dublin but I wouldnt rate them very highly. I prefer original, one of a kind cafes. But if I had to pick a chain in Poland, I would choose Coffee Heaven. Coffee is always good, nice bright style and friendly staff. Sometimes, in Poland, you can come across small cake shops that can also have really nice coffee in some cases.

Agreed - I take my coffee seriously - and Starbucks, naah. Can't beat a good small cafe. I Nero in the UK (haven't seen them in Ireland) is good.

Has anyone ever tried Kopi Luwak coffee?

They don't serve in Starbucks, but it's interesting stuff.

Starbucks is coffee for the rich , but they do have some tasty whole beans to but. All of those designer drinks are a waste of money IMO

Surely most people pick their coffee shop based on location / ambience etc rather than the brand? While I'd rather support a small independent rather than some mega corporation, if there's a Starbucks that does good coffee (and they very from shop to shop, don't they?) and is there when I need it, then Stabucks it is.

BTW, I don't recall seeing a Starbucks anywhere that I've been in Poland.

Maybe I could shed some light on why in Starbucks seems to be everywhere in the Uk and have as yet not overrun Poland. When the coffee scene took off in the Uk Starbucks operated a policy of "clustering". What this means is that they placed lots of Starbucks in one area so as to drive out the competition. If I remember correctly there is a book by a Canadian academic called "No Logo" and this book illustrates exactly how Starbucks operates. The reason I'm using the Uk as my example is I've not been to th States though I assume it is the same there.

I would have thought Starbucks would appeal to the young and well of, thus only the major cities would be able to support such an establishment.

My first coffee experience was appalling my girlfriend was shopping in our local town, it was winter and I was freezing so I headed to the only establishment which I could see served coffee. The coffee was served boiling hot in a glass, with no handle. The result was I couldn't even pick up the damn cup for about 10 minutes. When eventually I did the experienc was less than pleasant especially since the coffee grains remained in the glass. When I met up wit my girlfriend and related the experience, she couldn't stop laughing as I had been sitting in the equivelant of a soup-kitchen for the very poor and homeless. duh!!!

yeah, i was in scotland when coffee became big way back in 2000 and the starbucks corporation was known for not waiting for council approval to set up shop in buildings.

I'm Polish and live in U.S. Personally, I like Starbucks. But everyone has a different taste, right? I left Poland in 1994 and don't remember any coffee chains though local coffee shops served good coffee. Last time when I was there I drank Lavazza and that's a good coffee. I've traveled quite a bit in Europe and loved coffee in Belgium and France.

Keep that crap out of Poland I think and let them take the crap McDs, KFC, and missles with them too.
22 Apr 2008 #84
too late - they're opening up in Krakow soon, apparently.

the HAND!
22 Apr 2008 #86
I've never had a decent coffee at Starbucks. They should be sued for the rubish they have the cheek to serve up as coffee ! And then more cheek charging for it lol......but they do give away free used coffee to put in your garden as a fertiliser lol. I got some because it's good for stopping slugs crawling round. The slugs can't stand their coffee either hahaha <true>.

I can think of two much better coffee shops and they are expading rapidly <thankfully>

expanding even lol

Costa is already in Warsaw....
23 Apr 2008 #88
I think the Hard Rock Cafe has leased the ground floor space right next to the Kosciol Mariacki on the Rynek in Krakow too - a couple of meters from the ancient graveyard. Classy.
the HAND!

That's good to hear. We will be able to get a decent cup of coffee when we visit later this year ;-)

Has Starbucks reached Poland yet?

Are they throwing your perfectly good (allegedly) drinking water straight down the drain?

Allegedly or not quite so allegedly?
