The new and not-so-improved changes to the Cafe Menu line of instant coffee drinks included the popular strong cappuccino and hazelnut latte flavors.

After a trial tasting period, the consensus is in and a resounding majority of folks absolutely hate the new blend.

‘Nescafé what have you done to your new ‘creamier, frothier’ cappuccino? It is disgusting! I loved the old version, possibly too much,’ one customer wrote.
‘Sorry but this ‘new’ recipe for this once delicious coffee is just horrendous,’ another said.

On their site it says:

Disclaimer:  This is not your regular morning coffee.  This is not your store bought coffee.  You will not find this coffee at your local diner or at your sissy ‘Starbucks. Death Wish Coffee is the most highly caffeinated premium dark roast organic coffee in the world. This is Extreme Coffee, not for the weak. Consider yourself Warned.

Death Wish Coffee is a breakthrough in the coffee world.  Typically dark roast coffee has less caffeine in comparison to lighter roast coffees due to the caffeine being stricken from the bean during the roasting process.  Here at Death Wish Coffee we have found a coffee bean with close to 200% the amount of caffeine as your typical coffee shop coffee; we roast it to a medium-dark for a strong and robust flavor and then we grind it to the proper level for extreme potency.  We roast to order and inspect before and after the roasting process to ensure correct moisture levels, bean density, and uniformity.  We are dedicated to quality and guarantee that you will not find a stronger, more flavorful, organic coffee on the market anywhere or we will buy the coffee back from you.  This is the best coffee for the strong.  

Holy Spumoni! I wonder how bad the crash is? Makes it seem like you’re doing something illegal.

CROOKED BEAN COUNTERS? STARBUCKS RAISES Prices As Coffee FALLS

Coffee is currently $1.71-per-pound, which is down 30% from the $2.48-per-pound price of a year ago, but that has not stopped the folks at Starbucks from raising their price-per-pound – from $9.99 to a whopping $14.99!

You can start to get an idea of the profit Starbucks is making off each pound of coffee they sell by checking the falling world price of the popular bean.

MarketWatch:

The price of Arabica coffee dropped to around $1.71 per pound in October, down 3% from the previous month and down about 30% from the $2.48-per-pound price of a year ago, according to the latest edition of the World Bank’s “ Commodity Markets Review Report .”

Why? Supply is plentiful in Colombia and Central America, where much of the coffee that ends up in the American market is grown. In fact, Brazilian coffee growers, who provide a third of the world’s coffee, are predicted to harvest a record 6.6 billion pounds in 2012, according to a recent report in The Wall Street Journal .

So will Starbucks consider dropping prices? A spokesman declined to comment. Of course, there are other reasons why Starbucks remains popular. Customers go there for the jazz music and free Wi-Fi, which encourages them to lounge with their iPads for hours — often nursing cold cups of coffee. Regular customers can build up loyalty points for free drinks and, last September, Starbucks sold 1.5 million $10 e-gift cards at 50% off through the daily deal site LivingSocial.com, according to company spokesman Jim Olson. “We also have other overhead like fuel and dairy products,” he says. But analysts say customers may not always be prepared to pay nearly $5 for a 16-ounce “grande” or medium Starbucks Frappuccino. “They do have to be careful,” Russo says. “Consumers are starting to watch what they spend.”
