soylent green is coffee!

I’ve just been given an awful truth to absorb.  Starbucks and Seattle’s Best Coffee?  Same company.  It’s true.  The guy who told me is from Seattle, so he would know.

I don’t know why but I feel betrayed.  What does it mean for capitalism when your competition is you?  Does Seattle’s Best really feel the need to out-do Starbuck’s Frappachino?  I’d guess not.  How long before they buy Coffee Bean and the only way I can pay someone for my coffee who isn’t part of the Star-Best-Bean-Bucks Empire is to walk into a Seven-Eleven?  What then, America?  God help us.
