Starbucks brilliantly popularized several-dollar cups of coffee, and now it’s time to raise prices. Starbucks is nice, but it would be a lot nicer if they would enforce a maximum decibel level on the background music. I often take my laptop to Starbucks to work, but I periodically have to leave because the volume on the stereo is cranked so high. I’ll pay several dollars for a cup of coffee, but only if I can have a reasonably quiet place to work or conduct a meeting. Apparently, many others agree.
