  • - I used to be a barista, way back in the day,

  • so coffee's kind of my thing.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - I'd say this is maybe like a medium brew,

  • versus a lighter brew.

  • - This tastes a little oaky to me.

  • It does taste the way it looks

  • which is like darker and more like--

  • - I'd say more robust. - [Man In Hat] Like full.

  • - It's a moist silkiness.

  • But still weak.

  • I'm not mad though.

  • - It's along the basic category I would say.

  • But it's, it's not the most basic.

  • - Oh, this is Starbucks.

  • - I would say it cost maybe two bucks.

  • And I would pay two bucks.

  • - This is definitely $1.85, and I'd pay two bucks for it.

  • - Smells flat.

  • - It's got a buttery smell.

  • - I feel like the nicer coffees

  • have a higher, sweeter taste at the top.

  • And this is like, it goes down really smooth,

  • - I'd say it definitely tastes sour.

  • - I would pay $0.50 for this.

  • - I wouldn't pay for this.

  • - I'm scared to be wrong here,

  • cause I, I really like this coffee.

  • And I think I would pay $4.00 for it.

  • (cash register chime)

  • (new age music)

  • - Seven?!

  • - Oh my God, $7 for this?!

  • - It's worth $7.

  • - It's actually really good.

  • (rhythm and blues music)

  • - What are these notes?

  • I don't even know what, note this is.

  • - It feels tropical, it's got, it's got a,

  • I don't know, I see trees when I smell it.

  • - It's like a pretentious smell.

  • Like why are you even-- - [Man] Mmmmm.

  • - Smelling like this?

  • - I feel like I'm going to regret this if I'm wrong,

  • but it tastes sophisticated.

  • - There's barely any bitterness to this.

  • I mean, it's, I don't want anymore.

  • - It just smells pretty standard.

  • - This is like free office coffee

  • and I wouldn't pay for it.

  • - Free office coffee, and I wouldn't pay for it.

  • (cash register chime)

  • (blues music)

  • - There def over-charging.

  • - I'd say $1 even.

  • - Yeah, get read of that $0.79.

  • (funky music)

  • - Starbucks to me was my favorite one,

  • because it kind of included all those things

  • that I look for in a cup of coffee.

  • - The coffee commissary one out of all of them,

  • like I, it got me thinking, like,

  • it was like, "Woah, something happened here."

  • And like it, it wasn't just like the run of the mill,

  • or run of the swill, if you will coffee. (laughs)

  • - Okay Dr. Seuss.
