Quotes
  • "They need to fix their b.s. packaging for me to want to buy this product again."
Quotes
  • "Without wifi or working restrooms, can you even be considered a coffee shop? $11 for an Americano and a juice. They had forgotten the lady next to me's order completely and it wasn't even busy. "
  • "we got tired of waiting and asked her. I m only giving stars for food... overall ok, bit pricey but overrated."
Quotes
  • "For instance, they don't put their menu in a normal, readable location like every other coffee shop in America. Instead, they have a postcard-sized menu up by the register that you would miss unless you knew where to look - and since you wouldn't be able to read it until you get to the register, this causes the line to slow down and confusion for newcomers. "
  • " The staff here is beyond rude and unpleasant. Act like they are doing you a favor by serving you. Seem to forget that the world owes them nothing and that they work in a coffee shop."
  • "Horrible service and bad coffee. Ordered a cappuccino. They forgot about me and gave coffees to people who ordered after me. Then I had to ask for mine again and got warm milk. I asked them to fix it and they said I would have to wait. They do not even have the right size cups for cappuccinos. Never again. Total garbage."
Quotes
  • "Super expensive coffee and very limited selection of pastries. Apparently, small dogs are allowed on weekends but not on week days, only god knows why."
  • "came into this establishment and was not impressed. i ordered an ice coffee. The coffee tasted very muddy. Its if if was not brewed correctly. Would not recommend."
  • "3-star bc paying for a cup of coffee and getting half. and pastries a bit on the pricey side."
Quotes
  • "the tops were loose when I opened the package so I lost product (the center of the lids were popped) and they are to be kept refrigerated... just shipped in bubble wrap. Since both tops were popped, I will be dumping them in the sink."
  • "Overpriced and under flavored. Will not buy again. "
  • "Bought one from Whole Food yesterday. Very disappointed. Very acidic--seriously doubt if the process is really cold brew."
  • "If you added equal parts water and this "concentrate" it would be sooo weak. I drink this straight as if I would any other strong coffee. It's not concentrated. False advertising."
Quotes
  • "when I opened a new bottle to find tons of small pieces of white stuff floating on the top, looked in the bottom and sides of the bottle and realized whatever it is was actually throughout the entire bottle. "
Quotes
  • "Her arrogant body language was enough to tick me off. She needs to be sent to finishing school to learn some etiquette. With this attitude you will not survive in any other city but may be only in Portland. You are off my list ."
  • "I want to think that we came in on an off day but the drinks here were terrible. Their chai tasted like water, and the iced coffee was so incredibly bitter it was undrinkable. We wound up throwing them both away and going to peets instead."
  • "Overpriced coffee, I get it, you're a Portland staple...but your coffee is not THAT good. "Issa no for me dawg" (Randy Jackson Voice) $6 scones and $7 drip coffee? I'll pay the price of the taste is worth it, and it's not. Hmm, next."
  • "Great staff and presentation but music so loud could not hear Staff and espresso was terrible."
Quotes
  • "I was not happy with this coffee because I wasn't a big fan of the flavor. The flavor to me was too strong for my taste. "
  • "It has a clearer coffee taste than most but I don't know how anyone can drink this straight. Other reviews mentioned it being sweetened but I didn't taste anything but straight coffee. I had to pour it in a glass and add sugar to make it more palatable so if you're used to cream and sugar this won't be a very good on-the-go drink. Also of note was that the cap needs a bottle opener and is not twist off. It would probably be good with ice cream but straight, it just wasn't for me."
Quotes
  • "I can see a couple week old beans from third party but not two months old. Very disappointing!"
Quotes
  • "VERY VERY BAD. I ordered Mocha from South Kensington branch today and gave very bad stomach pain. This has happened to me few times during the past few years at different Starbucks locations in London. The prices are getting more expensive which is ridiculous."
  • "The staff here have no clue how to make coffee. They always get my order wrong. When they do not know how to make a drink, they make up the excuse they ran out. Happens every single time. I am so furious that I pay for service and never get what I ordered."
  • "I added money to my Starbucks rewards card two days in a row in store. It has been 3 days and I have contacted customer service several times. The customer service automated number is useless if I cannot speak to a real person. "
Quotes
  • "I've ordered two drinks from here thru the app within the last week. Both have been a messed up! I asked for no ice this is what I got. Drink has no sugar at all when I asked for extra syrup. They seem to just not care at this location."
  • "Absolutely Dirty, pretty gross. I wouldn't have ordered my drinks if I seen before. If this isn't clean what Else isn't clean "
  • "Highly dissatisfied with the customer service. The Lady took our order with an attitude and we waited for 15 min until we notified them we were still waiting while others received there drinks"
Quotes
  • "Bought this at the store a couple weeks back. This was awful did not like it. I am a big fan of cold brew usually I buy Starbucks cold brew. Let's just say I poured a good bit out."
  • "Not too thrilled with the cold brew. The taste was too bitter. Even mixing with milk didn't make it any better. "
  • "This is an okay cold brew. It's not terrible, but they're are better options for the same price. I have this in my fridge right now, so obviously it's drinkable! I drink mine with agave syrup, and a bit of half and half. I can drink the coffee plain- which is the problem. Its supposed to be a dark blend. It's has a weak coffee taste."
Quotes
  • "This stuff is disgusting. It has a strong artificial aftertaste and lingers for a while, really giving you the opportunity to ask yourself why you didn't just buy the real thing. Don't waste your money on this. Buy something with actual COFFEE in the ingredients."
  • "This stuff is quite literally coffee-flavored water. The first ingredient is...water. Second ingredient...coffee extract. Third...coffee flavoring. That's all that is in it. I drank half a cup and then threw the entire bottle out."
Quotes
  • "i usually make my own cold brew, so i don't know if it stronger than this but i felt like i was drinking water with a HALF a shot of espresso. i was very dissatisfied and un-impressed."
  • "This is not real coffee, the ingredients say "coffee extract" and "natural flavoring" Is another corporate example of false advertising. Why coffee "extract"? Why do you need "natural flavoring" if you use real coffee beans? I tried to get details on this so called "coffee extract" and they wouldn't elaborate. All other cold brews say two words for their ingredients, coffee and water. This is not real coffee!"
