Review of Pikes Place Roast

So I stopped by the Starbucks near my house today to try out the new coffee we’ve been hearing so much about. The first thing I noticed was how the entire store smelled so much more like coffee. The fact that they are grinding coffee for everything makes a huge difference.

Pikes Place Roast itself is REALLY good. It has some similarities with house blend but is much deeper. The barista told me that when they were choosing the beans they really focused on pairing the coffee’s flavor with cream and sugar. This is a pretty ingenious, don’t you think?

I noticed that Starbucks is calling Pike Place Roast “the everyday brew”. I’m not sure how I feel about that title. What do you guys think?
