Will this mean war?
During a Houston, Texas press event to plug his new bottled Culinary Iced Coffee, Wolfgang Puck admitted he thinks that his competitor, Starbucks, is "terrible coffee!"
So terrible, in fact, that anyone serving the ginormous coffee chain's products should be "embarrassed", explaining:
"Starbucks, what they make, if you open a bottle and smell it, what did they do to the coffee? They created a taste in the memory for people, which is interesting, so that people really think it's good coffee, but it's terrible coffee! Like when I fly on United Airlines they say, 'We proudly serve Starbucks coffee.' I said they should say, 'We are embarrassed to serve Starbucks coffee.'"
Strong words. Hopefully his new brand of coffee can back them up!
