BUT i am seriously perplexed when i see high schoolers coming to starbucks to load up at lunchtime or between classes...and don't even get me started when i see little ones drinking venti frappawhatevers..i didn't start drinking coffee until i was in college..i didnt have the taste buds for it until i was older and now its a lovely morning ritual or i will drink my tea..

do you think its odd?

YES - i think it's super odd and super annoying... i'm with you - i didn't start drinking coffee till i HAD TO in college (sleeping through art history was a no-no) and now it's just part of the routine. i think a lof of the tween/high school obsession has to do with mainstream marketing and pop culture. at least they're not smoking cigs? still annoying though, ahah!

I think really it is the way you were raised, I am Cuban born raised in this country and we grew up drinking Cafe con Leche or Cafe au Lait aka Coffee with milk since we were pretty young, I mean not in our baby bottles :) but we did have it as part of our breakfast. I believe there are other countries where this is also traditional. Now as far as Starbucks well that is an entire different story all together first it is expensive and my favorite Cafe Mocha is pretty strong even for someone like myself that has been use to drinking coffee all her life. Anyhow I agree with Molly it is better than they taking a cigarette break.

Totally, totally agree! Was a necessary evil of college for me too.
