If you’re tired of Starbucks being the master of all coffee shops in your area, Biggby Coffee is your cure. I can’t lie, I do go to Starbucks often, but, sometimes, it’s just hard not to find a Starbucks. They’ve become the Walmart of coffee. And while they do serve good coffee, they don’t serve the best coffee.
Formerly known as Beaner’s Coffee, Biggby Coffee started in East Lansing, Michigan in 1995. The first store had its humble beginnings near Michigan State University in an old Arby’s. They are now a successful franchise with locations in 9 different states.
So, why is it so much better than Starbucks. Here are five reasons…
I’ll start with the most controversial reason, because it’s the most subjective. Everyone has different tastes in coffee, but every time I hear someone compare it to Starbucks, they mention the taste. They say the coffee is fresher and tastes much crisper.
Anyone can go to a Starbucks, right? True, anyone can, but can anyone feel welcome. You can walk into an Abercrombie & Fitch, but if you wearing sweatpants and don’t look like a model, you won’t feel comfortable. Biggby Coffee provides a very welcoming, chill environment where anyone can enjoy a good cup of coffee.
Do we need to say more. Starbucks’ prices are a little ridiculous. It’s not like Biggby Coffee is half the price or anything, but saving money is saving money.
This one may sound odd to you, but it’s true. Starbucks will try to make you think your drinking or eating healthy in their shop. Biggby has the courage to let you know how unhealthy your coffee habit is. And, in this case, honesty is the best policy.
Who doesn’t love punch cards at a restaurant? You just look forward getting that last hole before your next free item. You won’t see these at Starbucks.
Of course, when it comes down to it, we all love coffee and we’re going to go wherever is most convenient for us at any one particular time. If you haven’t tried Biggby Coffee, stop by and try them out sometime.
