Update: Tully's vs. Starbucks

Tully's Coffee
‚Äč My morning coffee buying routine has changed a bit since my last Tully's vs. Starbucks post. [Sidenote: Soon after I posted it, Tully's raised their prices to be the same as (within a penny of) Starbucks for a grande drip coffee. Since price wasn't really an issue anyway, that didn't matter to me, but I wanted to make that known.] For the past month or two, I've been driving to work rather than taking the train, so I no longer walk past the coffee establishments discussed in my previous post. However, near the beginning of my drive, there are both a Starbucks and a Tully's on my route, just two blocks from one another. I still get Tully's, mainly because of the better designed coffee cup lid. I also think I'm beginning to like their coffee better; Starbucks drip coffee definitely has a more intense flavor. Or as Alton Brown said when I saw him speak on his last book tour, a more "charred" taste.

Also, upon rereading the above paragraph, it seems a morning Tully's coffee makes me overuse commas.
