so it seems that BK will now be selling Sbux (Seattle's Finest) in the war between burger chains.

    I'm not quite sure if this is right. I think I saw the news article yesterday myself, but I thought it was Seattle's Best, not Starbucks? I hope so, I love Seattle's Best. Then again, there's not even a BK near me, but there are cafe's with Seattle's Best, so guess it doesn't really matter to me.

      Since 2003, Starbuck's owns Seattle's Best. I prefer Seattle's Best as it is not asbitter as Starbuck's and does not have a burnt taste. In our area (Southern New England) there is Starbuck's served in Barnes and Noble and Seattes Best served in Borders...............

      I've given up on both, as McD's has any size Newman's Own Coffee for $1. If BK meets that price, I'll be buying my Seattle's Best from them

            Hate to stereotype, but there's a group of older people who hand out at my local Dunkin Donuts in the morning and they get small/medium by choice, unrelated to cost. They just don't like to drink so much at a sitting.

                It's a hot beverage. If you like to take your time driniking your coffee it's very liable to get cold before you're finished. It's not something you can guzzle down as wel as you're getting the full beverage, not just some and a lot of ice. Plus, those who can have caffeine in limited quantities and don't like decaf are betetr off with the small.

          I guess this means the BK Joe hoopla will be over.
          I had no idea Starbuck's owned Seattle's Best. It's one reason I like going to Borders over Barnes & Noble, as it is cheaper.
          McDonald's coffee is Newman's Own? Another "no idea".

            The MCDonald's coffee is supplied by different roasters, depending on the region. On the West Coast, it's supplied by Gavina Coffee. Not sure about other areas.
