Question: Starbucks says the latest case against them is frivolous because the coffee was free. I say it's frivolous because it's a dumb decision to drive around like that, especially when most people are on their phones, too, when driving.

Only in damaged, distorted legal systems are coffee vendors liable for the stupidity of their customers. Some supposedly civilised countries can be an embarrassment.

Wilda Originally Answered: Is the coffee sold at "gourmet" coffee shops (Starbucks,etc) really any better than the stuff you make at home?
I used to think it was better until I tried one brand of instant coffee once that tasted exactly like the one I have in starbucks! Personally I think it is down to the strength, I know the coffee I tend to have at home is weaker than in starbucks. Out of my faves Starbucks is my preferred choice though nothing beats the atmosphere of one of the independents! Good luck with the business. :)

Did the vendor say to place the cup between your legs? I drink normally. If it is too hot I place the cup in a holder. It is safe to assume there are means of holding cups safely in a car. Going to a judge and arguing liability for damage between your legs would be a 'long bow'. You could argue that you weren't told not to but then you could also argue that the vendor is liable because you purposefully poured it over your groin. About the only argument I can think of is that the cup was overfull to safely use. But that is not exclusive to holding it between your legs.

I am sorry some people should just not be allowed out. If you are stupid enough to stick a cup of coffee between your legs and drive the Police should ticket you as you do not have proper control of the car. No the vender should Not be held accountable for your stupidity. If I sell you a gun and you shoot someone it is not my fault.

If the state health department tells you to serve coffee at 160 degrees Fahrenheit to avoid burns, and you serve it at 215 degrees because you just don't give a damn (which was the case in the famous McDonalds coffee burn case) then YES you are responsible.

Mallory Originally Answered: What is the best coffee maker to buy for the home and what kind of coffee should one get.?
The best coffee maker for you will depend on what exactly you want from it - great coffee, convenience, small footprint etc. When it come to great coffee - that also means different things to different people. So, first of all, you need to decide on the brewing method you want to use - I would recommend that you read the following article about choosing the best way to brew coffee: http://www.espresso-machines-and-coffee-... At the bottom of that page, there are also several people writing about which coffee maker worked best for them. Hope you will find that useful.
