It appears from gossip at my local Starbucks that Starbucks will stop offering any coffee of origin as a choice. It will only sell its appallingly bland and acidic, generic Pike Brand. A further indication of the Style over substance approach of their unimaginative marketing strategies. It was bad enough we had to enjoy Christmas blend in the UK from October thru January as part of their unimaginative repetitious seasonal branding campaign. Now they have abandoned their country of origin brands completely.
Are there any UK-based Starbucks employees out there who can respond?
