BEST ESPRESSO DRINKS - Starbucks - Like it or not, the world is becoming a smaller place due to globalization, and the coffee world is no exception. Starbucks, the mother ship of espresso huts, once again reigns supreme in this category. That taunting little mermaid (or whatever she is) lures us back every time with the same foam, the same caramel and the same cold blended java drinks, no matter which location you go to. Call it the McDonald's of espresso if you must, but realize that there is no escape. Might as well just kick back and indulge in that same reliable cup of joe.
