The Starbucks coffee podcasts

Now into their second show, and worth a listen regardless so at the very least you can berate it knowledgeably.

I was amused to come across this article in the Chicago Tribune wherein the author shows he sat through the show counting the occurrence of the word “coffee”.  Impressively they clock up 92 mentions, averaging once every 8 seconds (author’s maths, not mine!).  I do agree with the overall point of the article, it is a pretty bland podcast and I kind of hoped for more.
This article is not a patch on the heavily blogged and posted article in the NY Times on the coffee scene there, accompanied by a great little video on the site too that everyone should watch just for the novelty of seeing a decent crema on an espresso on the tv!
