I am as guilty as most other Los Angeles area people, in that I fork over four dollars daily from either Starbucks or Coffee Bean. The drinks here are watery, or milky depending whats ordered and certainly not worth the four dollars that it takes to purchase one. The service is fast, yet the drinks are lacking in flavor. Coffee Bean is more a place to see and be seen, interact with friends over coffee, then a place for good drinks. Because after sampling a large portion of the menu here, I've realized that good drinks cannot really be found here.
