I agree, which is why we buy the beans (either in a Starbucks or on eBay, where you can find 5 pound bags) and brew it at home. It’s a cultural Mecca though, always filled with mostly younger people sipping their beverages and using the WiFi. I imagine it will be the same in Downtown Center, nice mall, been there several times.I like their dark roast. But $3 for one cup is not gonna happen unless it's an emergency. And yes, there is such a thing as a coffee emergency!
