Everybody keeps calling it cookie cutter and a huge corporation...but that's so Portland, and I am *so* tired of Portland. I LOVE Starbucks. I proudly admit that. I love how simple their crap is and I have the snobby coffee shops in Portland...I have yet to have a good coffee drink at any other coffee shop.

Pros: Simple stuff.

The coffee is burnt, the prices are a rip-off and the servers are dumb. Why would you go here when you can go to Coffee People, Stumptown or anywhere else where the coffee tastes good? Do the world a favor and don't give your money to a questionable corporation for a second-rate product.

Love the atmosphere, knowing exactly what quality I'll be getting, knowing that it will be good coffee.

Pros: Relaxing atmosphere, Good meeting place, Good coffee

Starbucks is a great place to go, clean, friendly service, great atmosphere. Unfortunately, they burn (rather than simply roast) their beans. Admit it, the coffee leaves a bitter aftertaste that should not be there! Someone should get a clue, what a waste of great coffee and a great facility. Anyone who gets to taste really correctly roasted coffee, forever after does not like Starbucks.

Starbuck suffocates Portland. Try Cafe Uno or Stumptown for something decent.

1. Overpriced.
2. Cookie cutter.
3. Stupid names for drink sizes that aren't descriptive.
4. Crappy customer service.
5. They roast all the beans the same way -- black as burnt toast!
6. All the atmosphere of a McDonald's
7. Why are you supporting Seattle?
8. Just say no to strip-mall developments!

Over-roasted, over-priced, and mega-corporate with a take-over-the-world complex as big as McDonald's!!!

You alway know what you are getting at starbucks. The quality is always above average. The product quality is consistant from store to store. I do get tired of the employee's bad arrogant attitudes.

Pros: consistant quality, good quality

Cons: bad employee attitude, overpriced

I think you can much of a better deal going to a local coffee shop and get the same if not better lattes and mochas. Starbucks is way expensive and the servie is just plain ok...with all the people standing around waiting for their coffee there is not time to get indiviudal attention.

Pros: trendy, famous brand, lots of flavors

Cons: expensive, expensive, expensive

.

The reason I like starbucks is because I like coffee and I like it done right. I have been to Starbucks in 7 states and 4 countries and every time I order something I can expect the same drink, much better than hit and miss places. Sometimes you have to watch the register, because there are different ways to price say, a triple tall americano, but it is always good. Admitedly, ambience could use some work, though.

Pros: consistent drink, fast, inexpensive

Cons: felt "barcoded", inconsistent pricing, can be too "corpo"

It is so surprising that Portland, home of small businesses would support such a major name. It's popular only for convenienc and laziness on the consumers part. Customers aren't willing to take the time to search for the nearest locally owned coffee stand or shop which is sure to be within walking distance of any starbucks if it is fortunate enough to still be breathing. Private coffee shops serve better coffee at an extremely more reasonable price than any Plague of the Earth (Starbucks)

Starbucks is the best place for coffee... if you think McDonald's is the cute little bistro down the street with the delectable homefries and cozy ambience! The coffee is almost as bitter and nasty as the underpaid grunts who work there! Starbucks is woefully overpriced and over-rated. Why the hell is a shot of espresso $1.30, but if you want hot WATER added to it, the price jumps to $1.60!! And what's with all those socially- and environmentally friendly brochures on the counter about how great starbucks is for the world? You won't even recycle your paper cups! I avoid Starbucks like the plague if I can, but lets face it, we're addicted to caffeine and starbucks is on every freaking corner. The only place they haven't set up shop is in my kitchen, which is obviously more than can be said for some of you out there....

Every Starbucks is the same! The people working there are generally impersonal and snotty. The coffee isn't necessarily the best and their prices are very high. As a general rule I will avoid going to Starbucks whenever possible. This is not to say that I hate Starbucks, just that I don't prefer Starbucks.

Starbucks is consistant, reliable, and always gives me a good cup of coffee. While I like a funky interesting place, Starbucks gives me what I want almost wherever I want in Porltnad. For that everyday latte when you don't know what the neighborhood best place is, Starbucks serves grande greatness.

I'm shocked that Starbucks is the audience winner for 2002. They all look alike - why would anyone prefer that over an individual coffeehouse that makes real coffee?? Find a place that serves illy coffee - it's the best I've tasted yet.

Starbucks has been over rated and over priced for a long time. Their coffee is bitter and often burned, and their mocha-type drinks are way too sweet. Added to the fact that there are way too many of them (seven between my house and my work, which is not that far away...), I think they don't even deserve to be on this list.

Starbucks is weak. I used to think they had good coffee until I tried Peets. Peets is the chronic. If you like strong coffee, try it. You wont be disappointed.

In a city that prides itself on its snobbery of coffee, beer and urban planning, I'm shocked that Starbucks can rank anywhere near the top of a user poll. I guess there is something to be said for cookie-cutter familiarity.

Starbucks does not make bad coffee; it is just not anything special. The trouble is that they do not appear to take any special pains when roasting their beans or when they buy their beans. They definitely do not belong in the top ten in Portland.

Aside from the fact that you can't go 2 blocks in this town without stumbling over a Starbucks, their coffee is terrible. It's always bitter and over-roasted. The only good drinks are Frapuccinos but that's because all the other ingredients mask the taste of their terrible coffee.
Also, I resent how they are running the mom and pop coffee shops out of business.
I'll go out of my way to find another coffee house anytime!

Starbucks is coffee drinking for beginners. Every drink is so heavily saturated with sugar how can it not taste good. Want a real treat, read the nuitritional value of their drinks- think fat content.
Yeah, they taste great, I even like them, but not even close to being the "best coffee in portland".
Come on you local yokels, wake up and skip the sugar!

Starbucks has not only blackened their eye with "corporate" hassles, but they are losing customers due to lack of being able to see anything other than their own corporate greed. Sambuck's in Astoria is a great one person coffee shop and NEVER have I mistaken them for Starbucks. What a egotistical joke.

Starbucks is THE BEST! I have had people tell me they don't know what I mean, but there is no comparison, and I have tried coffee places far and wide. No one else has the perfect blend of coffee and flavorings to make that extraordinary latte. Now I can't even drink espresso unless it's a Starbucks, or I am disappointed.
