11 Worst Things About Starbucks - 11 Points Countdown
written by Sam Greenspan

After a short layoff (to get the editing done on a bunch of these), we're back with a new episode of 11 Points Countdown. On this one I'm joined by an old friend of mine, Kim Holmes, as we count down the worst things about Starbucks. It was a real bloodbath to see which of the choices would make the top 11 as there are so many worthy candidates.
