Nine Facts You Didn't Know About Starbucks by Jesse Bluma

Nine Facts You Didn't Know About Starbucks

Even people that are not the regular coffee
drinkers are intrigued by the flavors and
benefits of coffee.  Coffee though is
showing medical promise to limit 
the chances of diabetes, cancers, and 
strokes.  That does not mean we have 
free reign to add all kinds sweeteners, 
cream, and syrups.  Also, remember

home is Starbuck's Fair Trade Certified™ 
Dark Italian Roast.

"This coffee gets its distinctive sweetness 
from the way it is roasted: dark, and 
darker still.  Somewhere beyond 
the caramel notes of our Espresso Roast, 
short of the smokiness that identifies our 
French Roast – that is the sweet 
spot held by Italian Roast.  What is 
created after the coffee cools is a sturdy 
and sweet blend, potent and intense."
