Great links. I just signed up for the tea trade–what a fabulous idea.

As for the unbranding of Starbucks–I adore Starbucks. I also like buying locally made goods. I sometimes feel guilty when I am not at a small coffee shop owned by one or two locals, so I usually go to my closest coffee shop, which is Tim Horton's.

I guess I justify it because they play up the "locally owned and operated" and "roasted right here in Rochester" aspects of the franchise.

I feel Starbucks is trying to appeal to an even broader range by doing this in a market that seems oversaturated (my feeling while visiting your city) with the chain.

I do love SB, though, and the company has done a great deal of good for others around the world.

Aw, thanks for the mention! It's not a review so much as a discussion of the packaging, but hopefully people will find it interesting. :)
