    I'm happy with my Mr. Coffee brew.

    Interesting the Wall Street Journal would use a luxury product like a Starbucks coffee as an example of purchasing-power parity across currencies. Look at the difference between New York and Detroit for example. I suspect it varies widely within countries depending on the area, local competition and how much people are able / willing to pay.

    The Sydney example would be $5 or $4.95 in local currency, in Hobart I can buy a nice brewed coffee and croissant from local bakeries for the same price so personally I wouldn't pay $5 for a cup of coffee. A lot of people must have felt the same, it wasn't open all that long. I just found an interesting blog post "Why Starbucks Failed in Australia":

    No Thank You. On a special occasion during the Holidays. They offer a few pumpkin lattes or spice lattes. They are fun for a nice treat; but honestly, way too $$ for me.

    I have a gevalia machine, 3rd one in almost 30 years. Love them, get their coffee too. I'm simple. A nice blend, a little cream and I'm good. I get a latte maybe once every 2 months, more around the holidays, maybe 2 a month ... Seriously. Not a fan, so. Starbucks is not for me. Even their plain coffee I don't like.

    I grind mine fresh every morning, can't beat it.

    This is truly my least favorite tasting coffee on the planet. No matter how they dress it up, it still taste nasty to me.

    I agree. I dislike Starbucks coffee so much that I can safely say I wouldn't drink their coffee if it was the only coffee left on the planet!
    (Yes, I am a coffee drinker.....I have my 2-3 cups of regular coffee and 2 cups of espresso daily.)
