Starbucks Yields to Customer Demand; Brings Back Burnt Coffee

StarbucksOnly a few months after Starbucks replaced their "bolder" coffee with the Pike Place Roast featuring a "smooth and welcoming everyday blend," The Wall Street Journal reports that Starbucks has yielded to customer demand and will be once again brewing the "classic" bitter and burnt Starbucks coffee:

"Because of your many requests for a bolder coffee choice throughout the day at Starbucks, we are bringing it back in the afternoon to many of those stores that sell lots of freshly brewed coffee all day long," Starbucks said in a message posted on its customer feedback Web site Tuesday.
