From Starbucks' CEO to the "Partners" re: plans for the new year:
"By the end of fiscal year 2008, discontinue warmed breakfast sandwiches at our North American stores
We made this decision because, in short, the scent of the warmed sandwiches interferes with the coffee aroma in our stores, which is key to the coffee experience that forges our connection with customers. Moreover, while our customers liked our sandwiches, they told us that they missed the aroma of coffee." From http://www.starbucks.com/aboutus/pressdesc.asp?id=822

Starbucks coffee has a very high caffeine content - presumably to get customers hooked on it! I find it kinda bitter myself.
