Almost. I feel like they get the ire that Folgers and Maxwell House ought to be getting. I hate chains, but they're one of the few places I know where you can work 20 hours and get health care benefits, and, for a corporation, they've a better track record than almost everybody in their league when it comes to environmental sustainability. Lastly, they buy more Fair Trade coffee than anybody else, by volume. If they were to raise it by 5% they'd sap the world market for Fair Trade coffee, meaning we need more development in this area to appease the middle-to-upper class white activists who give a shit for the 2-4 years in college they campaign before taking jobs with whomever and stop campaigning.
