I don't have a whole "latte" love for Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX). I can resist the siren's song. I don't need my Frappuccino fix. I've never had a Tazo touch.

By the same token, I realize that I'm in the minority in my distaste for pricey coffeehouses. I see the folks lining up behind smiling baristas at the local Starbucks. I rarely see the same kind of scene at competing chains like Caribou (NASDAQ:CBOU) and Peet's (NASDAQ:PEET).

So let's do everyone a favor, remove my bias from the equation, and bring in a pair of smarter Fools to argue both sides of the Starbucks story. Alyce Lomax is our bull. Chuck Saletta is our bear.

I may not be one of the java junkies, but I can certainly see the argument in favor of the Motley Fool Stock Advisor recommendation, after the great gains it's delivered over the years.

Where do you stand? That's what this Duel is all about.

Duel on!
