Better than St(Arbuck)les?

Excited about the new Starbucks coffee blend, Pike Place Roast, that’s being served up by Baristas across the U.S. today? Me neither. But I did try a Grande of it…and was relieved it didn’t smell like the Pike Place Fish Market. Verdict: Subtle and solid. Approachable but not too intimate. Mildly earthy yet not dirty. No hint of that vinegary, acidy taste exhibited by so many Starbuck brews. And best of all… re-heating in a microwave does not bitter it; no taste change. Good stuff, this Pike Place.
