    Starbucks is definitively not 'fancy coffee'.

    I am the one to blame for this poll. Since I don't actually drink Starbucks, I didn't know. I just observe the way others seem to regard it.

    Starbucks is:
    expensive.
    complicated
    coffee-related or coffee-adjacent
    well marketed.

    It can be a good place to sit (some have comfy chairs) and "free" wifi used to be a good thing (with modern mobile data plans, becoming irrelevant)

    Coffee from a proper machine, a good barista, and made with proper roasted beans and good milk (or milk substitute) is completely different - but Australian Starbucks can make a drinkable version of an Australian latte.
