"There are a few brands on the
planet that people love to hate
as much as Starbucks.
Nor, for that matter, are there many
brands that folks so much love to love...
There are millions who cringe at its
sheer audacity to charge up to
5 bucks for a cup of fancy coffee
- where folks wait in long lines for it.
Then, there's that all-powerful world
of social media, where it's always
in vogue to Starbucks-bash"
