    I Was In The Army

    We drank what was presented to us.  One particularly nasty offering prompted me to ask the cook how he made this brew.  He matter of factly told me he just kept adding grounds and water.  Never cleaned it, never changed it.  For months.Stuff kept me up though.

    All Nighter, Not All Righter!

    I was working long hours and on the road by myself.  I completed an objective in Washington D.C., then moved on to another in Virginia.  After that I had to haul over to Minnesota, hook it back to Chicago, and then end up in Detroit.  As I was on the last leg of this ordeal...

    Very Nasty Liquid Represented As "coffee"

    I've never been a complainer and appreciate whatever I get. If coffee is a bit thin or not the freshest I can manage. But one morning while vacationing in Orlando we pulled into Golden Corral for breakfast buffet before Magic Kingdom. A server brought me a cup of SOMETHING. It...

    No, Thank You?

    I adore coffee.  I'm an addict.  I need it in the morning and during the day and sometimes I drink an expresso or two before going to sleep.  I sleep like an ox or a rock or whatever. Needless to say that I prefer the coffee to be as it should be.  Strong...

    One of my first jobs was at a restaurant/cafe. There was always a pot of regular and a pot of decaf coffee that we just reheated until it was all gone. Then we'd be able to make a fresh pot. Back then, that was the only coffee I'd ever tried. I didn't drink any Starbucks or...

    As Far As I'm Concerned...

    Some people have called me a "coffee snob." I do not protest to this nickname, however I wouldn't say that I'm super particular. My biggest rule when it comes to coffee drinking is this: A pot of coffee can only be brewed and consumed in one hour....no more. After one hour coffee...

    Oily Coffee

    I've had this on more than on occaision. I guess it's to do with how long the coffee has been filtering for or where the cups are kept, the milk is kept. But oily coffee is the worst. It's like....coffee tasting oily water with added milk.
