I would not equate bitter (and to me bitter is like quinine and other herbals) and burnt. Starbucks to me is less bitter and more burnt. Bitter coffee (I think) comes from not using enough grounds. And Starbucks did teach people to use more coffee... which also increases demand.

They were/are/will be marketing geniuses.

The sugar thing may be more of giving Americans what we like, we are sugar addicts, and that sugary drink stuff sure appeals to younger coffee drinkers.
