    True, but the Brazilians also have great coffee, and plenty of it, yet Starbucks has no less than 8 locations in São Paulo. So who knows...

    If a McDonalds, Burger King, TGIFs can make it here, so can a Starbucks. The price alone for a cup of java will prevent many dominicans from buying it and that's just fine for the status/society types. It will be status thing a place to be seen. The young hipsters will flock to it.

    Try the capuchino at Librería Cuesta in the Supermercado Nacional!!....

    Icky poo!! I was stupid enough to try coffee in the States and I nearly vomited...it is so insipid....

    I wonder what happened to the old Bar Colon on 30 de Marzo....everyone in town would wander through there in the morning for a cuppa and some conversation..

    Times change, but I cannot see Dominicans, even stupid rich Dominicans paying RD$150 for a cup of coffee....or more...

    We'll see....I am sure that there is someone here who already has the rights to a franchise...

    Yeah, afraid I agree. Even at Starbucks.

    Which is why years ago I started asking friends and relatives coming from the DR or Brazil to bring me coffee instead of beer. What little beer they could bring me was usually gone in one night. The bags of coffee I could savor for weeks or months.
