    Pretty much all round the world companies such as Starbucks, Costa, Nero have coffee shops on high streets

    Where would you prefer to have a coffee? One of those aforementioned outlets or a local cafe/restaurant?

    For me I much prefer an independent cafe/restaurant in the same way I would much rather buy a burger at a mobile roadside burger van or street stall rather than MsDonalds, BK, Wendy's or whatever

    I'm not a fan of Starbucks for a variety of reasons and we don't really have any other big chain coffee shops around here. That said, we do have quite a few locally owned and operated coffee shops that are nice. One of them is owned by a former orthodontist, oddly enough. Good coffee and I get to support a local business and keep my tax dollars in my community. What I wish we had was a place where I could get a decent cuppa. People in the states csm make a great cup of coffee, but most of them can't make decent tea to save their lives.

    A local cafe...there's one about 3 blocks from where I live, and it has great coffee and desserts. A nice, quiet little place, friendly staff, think I'll need to go there again soon. :)

    I know someone who spends $5 a day buying coffee out from a street vendor - because it became a daily habit when she was working, and now one she cannot break........ $5 a day, now that's nearly $2,000 annually..... I'm sticking with the plunger in my kitchen!
