Starbucks, the crack cocaine of gourmet coffee

Needed to grab coffee between meetings this morning. Starbucks was closest, so…

For those who don’t know: Starbucks coffee has around 3x the caffeine of filter coffee you’d make at home. That’s one reason why I generally only have espresso drinks there. (And given other options, I generally don’t go there at all.)

Except today. So by 11:00, my ears were ringing. And that was the mild blend.
