Starbucks is nasty, sorry, but it is. The coffee lacks any sort of actual coffee flavor, it seems to be drowned out by the copious amounts of pesticides. If I'm going to pay a premium price for something that has pesticides, I want it to at least taste good. It doesn't.
I can find organic fair trade coffee for a lot cheaper at coffee houses(where the coffee snobs I know hang out anyway) than the gas station quality coffee I get at Starbucks.
Also, find it funny, you mention normal and then ask for "grok like" recommendations. Sounds like you have cognitive dissonance to work out, friend.
There is a difference between moral, and spinning propaganda to cater to the fat, lazy, hormonally manipulated herd of cattle who would probably eat a pile of shit dressed in a bun with "secret" sauce if you called it a Big Mac. It'd probably be the best tasting Big Mac ever too. There is nothing moral about intentionally harming the health of human beings for the sake of money, spinning lies, and destroying the environment and cultural monuments all at the same time.
Nothing against the normal employees at these establishments, they can't help but want to make money in this authoritarian regime.

Time is passing so quickly. Right now, I feel like complaining to Einstein. Whether time is slow or fast depends on perception. Relativity theory is so romantic. And so sad.
