Starbucks today launched an instant coffee brand. I am appalled - the last thing the world needs is encouragement to drink this vile coffee impersonator. They say it will taste the same as the coffee in their shops - though to be fair, Starbucks' coffee is pretty awful.
Mandelson says: "please don't project Starbucks onto the UK economy as a whole."
For now Caffe Nero has my Hight Street vote, though the coffee brewed in my kitchen is probably the best :) at which we're currently experimenting with some Lavazza, kindly donated by Chris Oldfield.
