The new Blackfriars Circus Starbucks is bound to leave you broke, but satisfied, so if that sounds appealing to you, go right ahead and try their delicious coffees. If not, I warn you to stay away.
Do you ever think our society is cruel? Well I do! A new Starbucks has opened opposite my university halls of residents, I mean come on. Talk about the biggest tease ever! Being party enthusiasts as well as hard working students, really knocks the life out of you.
So, tell me: how are me and my fellow broke, and exhausted students, supposed to resist the urge of buying a delicious, warm coffee on the way to university every cold and wet London morning?
Of course, I end up going to the Starbucks and it all went down-hill from there. Almost being December, they have their Christmas collection and I decided to try the ‘Eggnog Latte’. I had to, every American Christmas movie talks about eggnog, so it was simply a must.
The moment I took my first sip I was in love, the frothy, cinnamon spiced coffee filled my mouth with, what I can only describe as, a little bit of liquid heaven. I was stuck in between wanting to down the drink then and there, or treasuring it for as long as it would stay warm.
No, I haven’t bought 4 within the last week…and no I didn’t use my overdraft.
So, as you can tell, I couldn’t stay away for long. If you are a university student I urge you to stay away or else you’ll be living off coffee for the year. Due to your addiction, you won’t be able to afford anything else.
