    What Is Starbucks Cooking Up Tomorrow?

    If you head over to Starbucks' website, you'll find a cryptic message claiming that something big they're calling it "venti" big is happening tomorrow. They've been implementing a lot of interesting changes at the coffee giant, but there's no news on what their big announcement will be. All I know is that on Tuesday, April 8 at noon ET / 9 a.m. PT, you should head into your local Starbucks to "celebrate something big." Oh and the website says not to be late.
    So what do you think it is? What sort of big announcement do you think Starbucks has up its sleeve?

    Knowing how chains operate these days, I'd say they will stretch their resources even thinner by introducing soup or some other food that will require MORE space, MORE training, and LONGER lineups.

    There was an interesting article in Time magazine about all the changes Starbucks is making. I guess Dunkin' Dognuts and McDonalds are making a big dent in their marketshare. It mentioned the fresh in-store ground coffee and getting rid of things like the breakfast sandwich and all the assorted crap like breathmints and candy. Also, they are unveiling a new expresso machine that will make the barristas more visible.

    I didn't see this thread yesterday. I stopped at Starbucks on my way home this evening as is my usual practice. I noticed the advertisement of a new coffee, Pike Place Roast, at the drive-thru menu. When I ordered my usual, I asked for a sample of the new coffee since I was out at home and needed to buy more of my regular, Gold Coast. They gave me a sample in a tiny little 'pill' container. I'm not complaining since that's what I asked for...a sample. But after reading this thread, it seems they would have wanted to offer me a free cup since I was there to replenish my home supply anyway.

    Just my 2 cents~
