Now, nobody would rant and rage more than I against the rampant spread of McDonalds, Starbucks
and high street chains at the expense of proper shops.
But, at some point over the last decade or so, it has however become possible to get decent coffee anywhere you like, instead of instant. How has this come about? Has Starbucks
educated us into drinking decent coffee, or has the proliferation of decent coffee drinking habits allowed for Starbucks
' expanding into a hitherto untapped market?
