So part of Starbucks massive store closures include Australian outlets. And part of that includes every single outlet in my state! Granted, that's only 2, but shit!

I've never had starbucks before, and frankly and probably part of the reason why they're not profitable and are shutting down. So in an ironic twist of fate I want to go to Starbucks tomorrow and buy the most ridiculous, caffeine filled, decadent coffee I can get. Can any aficionados make me a recommendation? I'm willing to spend up to say $15 Australian dollars (which I think is pretty much $15 American dollars right now! Hah, your economy is fucked. FUCKED!)

Anyway, make your case and I'll report back tomorrow with photos.

Whenever I go to Starbucks I always get the Carmel Machiatto. Don't know how exorbitant they are tho, but they are tasty.

My personal choice is sweetened iced green tea.

I asked once and, unfortunately, their highest caffeine concentration is just the normal coffee by itself.

The frappucinos are popular.

Their normal coffee is terrible. The frappuchinos are the only thing worth getting, except they are over $4 for a decent size.

Starbucks fails so badly here. The only place you can find Starbucks coffee is at a Chapter's bookstore.

The frappes are the only really worthwhile thing.

The most decadent thing I've ever seen on the menu at Starbucks was a drink called Chantico, which was basically a cup of liquid chocolate. My friend tried it once, and I had a sip; that was some powerful stuff. Unfortunately (or probably fortunately) they don't sell it anymore.

I make really awesome coffee so I don't really go to Starbucks. Though I'd recommend something with espresso.

Tim Horton's is really good. I like their bagel sandwiches.

Can't agree more. Coffee is pretty awful for its price and honestly I think it tastes disgusting when it gets cold. Hot chocolate is so much more enjoyable for the price and doesn't taste like ass when it cools. Needless to say, not a big fan of Starbucks or coffee in general.

They discontinued Almond flavoring. Otherwise, I always got an Almond Frap. It was delicious. It tastes like the Nut Up Java Monster.

I don't drink coffee either, but a frappuccino is hardly coffee, lol. It's more like a liquid brownie.

I don't know if I'd call myself an aficionad[a] though, I get Starbucks like 10-15 times per year (year) usually around Christmas 'cuz I love the pumpkin spice and peppermint mocha lattés but I digress the point is it's best to limit the number of times one pays ~$6 for a drink with the nutritional value of a Big Mac.

Tim Hortons is the only coffee chain that can open a Tim's every half mile and still make piles of cash. The town I am currently living in has 12 Tim Hortons...for a population less than 20,000 In the town itself.

The last place I lived had 3 tims in one area.
