i agree on spain!!
their coffee is much stronger compared to the dutch coffee (although that isn't not so bad just not strong enough) and i loved it!

What the hell's a frappe?

Starbuck and Gloria Jean coffee is over-priced rubbish.

A frappé here means "whipped" - it's usually those whipped milk drinks, with or without a dash of coffee. And I agree with you on Starbucks - nothing more than brown water. I had one this afternoon (cause I needed a coffe and that was all I could find), and added vanilla to it so at least it tasted like something. Barely.

Funny how many takes on a coffee these chains can come up with.

The thing I hate more than anything else - and this can happen regardless of the cafe' / shop - is a coffee that is only lukewarm and can therefore be downed in one gulp.

I mentioned this to a cafe' worker - sorry, barista (WTF??) - and was told that I can't be a real coffee afficionado if I like my coffee hot; something about the coffee being burnt or some such shit. I told him to keep his snobby opinions to himself, called him a tool, and walked off.

Considering the beans are roasted so they can grind them and make the coffee, maybe the coffee is already burned. Bet the "barista" didn't think of that one... Just goes to show that every beverage has it's geek.

I have to say, the coffee everywhere we were in Ireland was not very good, but the tea was quite tasty. I like the Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee when in Jamaica. It never tastes the same at home.

My sister works for Starbucks, so she has all that lingo down to a T. Still, no matter how fancy she makes the whole brewing process sound, the stuff still tastes like water.
