Re: Starbucks Coffee

Quote:
Can't stand Starbucks coffee and their huge thick mugs- but hey ho, each to his/her own.

At a tangent though, many people in the UK are currently boycotting Starbucks for choosing to pay (much lower) taxes in CH and none in the UK. Does anyone know where Starbucks CH pay taxes to - the Cayman Islands??

Costa on the other hand seem to be paying fair taxes in the UK - and their coffee is marginally better.
Starbucks are now in talks to pay more taxes in the UK. This could be that the boycotts by some and negative publicity is beginning to hit them. It could also be that they fear a compulsory tax change that could hit them even harder.
