We have been hearing about these Clover machines for quite some time now. Supposedly, they make use of a distinct way of brewing coffee. Proponents of these machines – and some people who have tasted coffee brewed by them – say that once you have tried “Clover coffee”, you will never want any other kind of coffee ever. I cannot say that I agree as I have never tried coffee made by a Clover machine but hey, I would want to try one!
Anyway, despite the recent spate of news that Starbucks is in dire straits, it seems that the coffee giant is still alive and kicking. Though they have closed numerous stores all over the world, they are still in the process of revitalizing their product line. The news is that they have developed a new line of coffee specially made for the Clover machine. Before you get excited, you have to know that these special coffee will NOT be available in all of the Starbucks stores. Apparently, only 10 stores in Seattle will have them, plus about 30 stores in Boston, and some stores in San Francisco. If you are not from any of these areas, good luck to you!
So will this new line of coffee and the special Clover machine make Starbucks coffee better? I am sure that you will get different responses from different people. Those who already like Starbucks on the outset will definitely say yes while purists who have a dislike for the chain will most definitely say no.
Let us know if you ever get to taste these special brews yourself!
