    Pumpkin latte is very nice. And I too love their eggnog. They don't deserve to pay taxes because they create such delicious drinks!

    Tried the pumpkin latte last weekend, wasn't very good. Doesn't taste anything like pumpkin, just like a weak latte with a load of sugar and cinnamon stuffed in. Eggnog is the clear winner, I'd be happy with that without their coffee in it really.

    Starbucks is overpriced hot water with shit crushed into it.

    Who wants to bet Gaudrain PLC never writes any losses off or carries expenses forward when doing their taxes?

    It doesn't go down too well at work when you have a beer on the go.

    Slightly different - this is wholescale avoidance of any corporation tax by moving profits out of the country. It's not as if they are doing a Google and just running operations out of Ireland with their low corp tax rate.
