#NOSTARBUCKS

Vow never to walk into a Starbucks ever again.

Vow never to walk into a Starbucks ever again. Instead, search out the most interesting indie coffee shop around where you live and work … get to know the people who own and run the place and get your friends and co-workers to join you there. Individually this may feel like a drop in the bucket, but if all of us do it collectively, then we can begin to shift power from megacorporations to our friends and neighbors.

Tweet #NOSTARBUCKS, Facebook it, email it, whisper it to a friend or shout it from the rooftops. Spread the word and let’s start brewing the mood for a worldwide revolution.

"then we can begin to shift power from megacorporations to our friends and neighbors."

You know Starbucks used to be small too right? And that its big because...people like it! What happens if this works and another indie shop grows big? Will you then jump ship on that one too? Why is the adbuster crowd so obsessed with being "original"? It seems so childish...

Depends how you conduct your business. I'd say deliberately targeting small independent coffee shops and attempting to drive them out of business is not a very progressive company. Also people
"like" what they have a choice to like. If you only have a choice between Starbucks and the diner on the interstate you'd probably like Starbucks too. You really think anyone in a mall anywhere in America has much of a choice of coffee? Or a movie theater or airplane, etc? To suggest that Starbucks is successful solely because they have good coffee is foolish and misses the point of the article.

Well, if it didnt have good coffee, moving beside a smaller shop wouldn't lead to the end of the smaller shop. If consumers decide the other place has better coffee, starbucks if powerless to shut them down. If this was always the case, starbucks wouldn't have grown from a small business in the first place.

Yes, there is a lot of choice. It is everywhere. We have more choice in coffee, movies, airplanes, tvs, clothing, cars, food , and everything else, than ever before!

They're a branded enterprise you fucking moron. Their green cunt-of-a-siren logo entices the sheep to slurp their overroasted shit beans.

Oh, your one of those "I know better than everyone else" types. the kind that thinks people with different tastes and beliefs are "morons" and "sheep". Nice...

The brand is so people will trust it to make a certain quality of coffee. Brands are meaningless if they have never brought forward quality product. Quality being what certain people look for. Diverse array of products for a diverse set of tastes.
