    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Reheated

    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...
