Initial Reactions to New Starbucks Brew

starbucks-newcup.jpgSo is the new 'Bucks jolt juice as smooth as they say? We asked some coffee drinkers at the Starbucks branch in Rosslyn, Virginia, and heard a lot of mixed sentiments. Too strong. Smoother. Watery. Worse than Dunkin'. Worse than McDonald's. Free. Old-school. People, make up your minds!

Reactions taken from the Starbucks located at 1525 Wilson Boulevard, Rosslyn VA 22209
