Caribou Coffee?

I've heard of them, obviously, but we didn't really have them around much. I noticed a store near campus booted out Starbucks and replaced them with a Caribou. Does it taste burnt like Starbucks or does it taste like normal coffee?

    Some people like burnt coffee. Some people like liver and onions. I don't hold it against them, just don't expect me to volunteer for either. :p

  • I love Caribou! I have a friend who is a die-hard Starbucks lover - but prefers Caribou (she just can't get Caribou near where she lives).

  • Let me start by saying that I like Starbucks lol. I know some people hate it, and I can't stand most of their coffee, but I'm in love with like three kinds when I can find it in whole bean (which is usually only from a Starbucks store, which we don't have around here).

    I've only had Caribou Kcups, but I like it, sort of. It's not a strong enough coffee for me to enjoy regularly, but I think it has a nice flavor overall. I wouldn't compare it to Starbucks at all, the flavor is totally different IMO. I would give it a try and see if you like it. What coffees do you like best?
