The Unkindest Cut of All

Actually, it's not as bad as I thought. The rumor I had originally heard was that you couldn't get ANY Starbucks decaf after noon. I can wait four minutes for a specially brewed fresh cup.

From USA Today:
Starbucks cuts back on its decaf

Starbucks Corp., the world’s largest coffee chain, hopes to save $400 million by September by stopping its day-long brewing of decaf coffee, Bloomberg news reports.

The Seattle-based company says it will keep a fresh pot brewing every 30 minutes in the morning, as usual, but after noon, customers will have to request decaf. Bloomberg quotes Starbucks spokeswoman Bridget Baker as saying it takes about four minutes to brew up a fresh cup.
