    I travel a good bit and love coffee from Tim Hortons, Dunkin Donuts and just about every other chain. Never really got into Starbucks.

    If it is the only option, would rather suck on a caffeinated candy like moovitz instead or drink hotel coffee.

    I think all Timmys are 24 hours. I don't think their coffee is "good", but I like that you don't need to add sugar to it. It barely tastes like real coffee at all.

    I thought I was the only weirdo who had never been! I like coffee, but I can make it at work and save that money for something else...I just can not rationalize paying that for coffee....

    thanks to starbucks decent coffee is now available all over north america. it used to be awful to come over for a visit and drink the muddy water that passed for coffee. i never have starbucks in europe since coffee is good everywhere and i'd rather not give money to a chain, but i'm grateful that because of its popularity, similar chains and coffee shops have sprung up everywhere

    I work at a coffee shop of a *very* small chain and of the three sizes of caps available the 'small' is the 8oz. they're talking about here. We actually have four cup sizes, including a 'tall' as mentioned in this article, but the cap is not available in that particular size as I believe it screws up the proportions and makes it tricky to make a real cap.

    Of course since we're kind of a competetor of Starbucks I have a silly grudge against them but to egde over to their side, most people complain when they ask for a small cap and receive it in an 8oz cup--we have to warn them beforehand just how small and bitter it will be as it is made in the traditional style and most just ask usk to make the caps in the taller cup anyway.
