Burger King To Sell Starbucks

The King to Sell Starbucks, Will You Buy It?

The competition is hot with coffee. First, McDonald's rolled out its own McCafe coffee drinks in 2008, now Burger King hopes to one-up their fast food rival by offering Starbucks-owned Seattle's Best Coffee in 7,250 of its US stores come September. Think this menu addition won't change your morning routine? What if you could score Starbucks quality (100 percent Arabica beans) for anywhere from $1.00 to $2.79, a pretty major discount if you're already shelling out $3.50 for a latte a day. That's the deal, as long as the name Seattle's Best doesn't scare you off — Seattle's Best was acquired by Starbucks in 2003, and now operates as a part of the brand.
So, if you're not deterred by the name branded on your to-go cup, you're getting Starbucks at a pretty decent price cut — assuming you can resist adding a BK breakfast sandwich to your order.

What do you make of the news? Will you head to BK for your coffee fix or are you hooked on your Starbucks, minus the fast-food pit stop?

I would buy it only if it were prepared in the same manner as it would be at any Seattle's store. McDonald's McCafe is supposed to be a comparable replacement to Starbuck's (NOT). Their regular coffee is so watered down and the cashiers are not trained to make even decent coffee drinks (80% milk and such......).

I don't like burger king so I probably will not be going there for coffee. If their food isn't good it's a waste of gas or a trip to even walk in for coffee.

I agree, it depends on the types of drinks they'll offer. Also, just because it's quality coffee they're serving, doesn't mean they won't leave it sitting out wayyy to long.

I probably wouldn't, but it depends on what kind of drinks I can get and at what price. I don't eat at Burger King so I wouldn't get one just cuz I'm there and part of the reason I like to go to Starbucks is the atmosphere which you so DON'T get at BK. But if I could get a good white chocolate mocha for a big discount, I'd go when I'm low on money.
