Starbucks serves 1 USD coffee to take lead over fast food

By Margarita Snegireva. As global coffee chain Starbucks Corp is facing an increasing competition from fast-food rivals, it began to test serving $1 coffee and free refills.

The report said Starbucks is experimenting with a "short" $1 cup as well as free refills for brewed coffee in its Seattle-area stores. Starbucks charges around $1.50 to $4.00 for a coffee, depending on size and flavour.

Through its Starbucks Entertainment division and Hear Music brand, the company also markets books, music, and film. Many of these products are seasonal or specific to the locality of the store.
