StarbucksMelody

Everyone has an opinion on Starbucks; generally, it is a favorable one. If you're one of Starbucks' loyal cafe-goers, or if you're only vaguely intrigued by the coffee chain, then perhaps StarbucksMelody is for you.

I don't personally care much for Starbucks (or coffee in general). I don't dislike it, but I refuse to put much, if any, thought towards it. However, even a holdout such as myself was captivated by the blog. Melody, the eponymous author, puts together an enthralling site about a subject you wouldn't think would be all that interesting. After all, they only make coffee..

..or do they? Turns out, Starbucks has a masterful hand in architecture, marketing, and many other realms of intrigue that you wouldn't quite expect from a cafe. Worldwide, Starbucks dominates coffee with a reign on par with the tyranny over fast food that McDonald's holds tight to. The facts, and fun, found in StarbucksMelody will blow your mind.

  8. That does make a lot of sense. If I was on the board that ran a huge chain like starbucks, I would invest in things like architecture and marketing as well ) McDonald's probably wants to appear 'cheap' and not like a place you go for a 4$ cup of coffee

  11. For me the coffee out of the machine at work is enough, starbucks is way to expensive.
