Well, the Italians invented espresso, right, which is what Starbucks claims to sell. So I suppose it makes sense for the originators to try to keep control of their product, like France did with her grapevines...well, except for America saving that whole industry...so it will probably be a while until you can get a good coffee in Milan or wherever...or at least until Starbucks decides to change marketing strategy and open some stores in Italy...
