**2 out of 5 stars**

Wanting to top the day off with a cup of joe, I visited my closest Starbuck's. Whether you like it or not, there is a Starbuck's within walking distance of almost every American.

This Starbuck's is located in a Safeway, and is open most times of the day. For a late Saturday afternoon, the service was slow and the product was terrible. I am not a big coffee drinker, but when I do visit Starbuck's I usually get a Mocha Late. In my mind, this is a common drink. For some reason, it took forever for them to make the drink. The place was empty except for a few people sipping on drinks in the cafe. But for having no line, it did seem to take a long time to have my drink completed.

Once in hand, the Late was not mixed well at all. There was tons of syrup and chocolate in the bottom of the cup, and the drink did not taste quite right. It appeared that it was not mixed well, and I ended up only drinking half of it before tossing it. I hated throwing it away since Starbuck's is so seriously overpriced.

There are so many coffee places in Fort Collins, I can't imagine visiting a Starbuck's anytime soon. Feel free to recommend any places that you like, or those loyal to Starbuck's feel free to defend it. If you must have Starbuck's, visit a location other than the one in the Safeway.

Comments:
Dazbog has the best espresso in town. Mugs has the best customer service via very friendly staff. I haven't had any Starbucks in a long time, I'd drink my own pee first.
 
I actually prefer this Starbucks (and this exact location) more than any other coffee shop, I've always enjoyed the baristas, the coffee, the atmosphere. I think you had a one-time bad experience? Either way, this is my favorite coffee shop in town (and yes I've been to almost every shop there is).
 
Oh my do I have to agree with you! I used to go to this Starbucks A TON!! After buying a coffee there, I had to go to the Starbucks down the street for them to make a new one. The taste seems to be off for some reason. I have never had "bad" customer service just never a good cup of coffee.
