yeah, I told them I didn't need anything else because I make my own with fresh ground beans (sometimes SBUX) that I buy at Costco.... where I get the stars for buying the beans.

what cracks me up is they put out tip jars for $5 coffee for workers who get good wages and health care needed for the expensive coffee and food... I give great (20 to 25%) tips to wait staff working two jobs at Mom and Pop places here as they mostly run split shifts to avoid health insurance so many workers work at one place for lunch then go to the other for the dinner shift. Starbucks should be ashamed to ask for tips for stuff that is already priced to pay decent wages and benefits.... especially it is basically the same counter service offered at Safeway with no tip jar.
