real coffee flavour

I've been fretting about Starbucks' and Pete's coffees for years now, where is that coffee flavour that I can so readily find in coffee ice cream? I've learned that sugar and cream do help in this regard but I've still been uniformly dissatisfied with the coffees that I buy at Starbucks/Pete's (I've also come to buy Dunkin' Donuts beans in an incrimental effort as I just don't like super-dark roast coffees).

But why is it that I can go to the Au Bon Pain at South Station and get more coffeee flavour in their latte than I get when fresh-grinding my Dunkin' or Petes' beans?! !
