I'm all for "Starbucks" in the same vein that we tag "Chipotle" not
"Chipotle Mexican Grill".

No need for redundant information. "Chipotle" does the job as does
"Starbucks", however the Wiki says to use "Starbucks Coffee". I have never
used that longer name to refer to Starbucks nor have I heard anyone else
using it but YMMV. Evenif a consensus can be reached to settle on one or
the other the Wiki will need to be updated.
