Calmamity: Starbucks isn't even that good to begin with.
Forbidden Doughnut: I've got an old Black & Decker 2-cup coffeemaker and I buy Folgers ( or any other cheap supermarket brand)/ ...and I live in the Pacific Northwest, so drinking what I drink amounts to heresy// paid $15 for the coffeemaker years ago, IIRC
Elzar: All you need is an aeropress or french press - usually less than $30 and they don't require electricity or counterspace...

CygnusDarius: Spanky_McFarksalot: CygnusDarius: Vietnamese? Nice.yup, best coffee in the world. Brought back half my suitcase full of Vietnamese coffee.I would've just gotten the thingamajigs to make it, but how different is the viet coffee bean from the rest?.
Tax Boy: Vietnamese coffee has chicory in it.Go buy some Cafe du Monde beans from New Orleans and save yourself a really long flight.
Techhell: justtray: Starbucks coffee hate is identical to iPhone hate.Contrarian hipsters hating things that other people like.Welcome to Fark.Yeah no.Starbucks coffee is burnt shiat. I've tried to drink it - heck, I used to get a free 10 cup take out with about 7 cups left in it after a monthly meeting of executives, as only the committee chair drank Starbucks and she always ordered a huge one. I tried about 5 different kinds, at a half dozen Starbucks since friends of mine loved to go. I gave it a hell of a chance, and not one blend of coffee there tasted good.
wildcardjack: You know what's better than Starbucks in the morning?[chanceseales.files.wordpress.com image 720x540]I've always thought Starbucks made for a nifty place to meet. You can get a non-alcoholic drink and grab some conversation time and if you have to meet with multiple people throughout the day you can fake interest over coffee much easier than that fifth lunch.
Bungles: I've no idea what they do to their coffee so that it tastes like coffee-flavored gelatinous hot milk-shake. You can see them making it... everything looks normal. Yet that same weird consistency, anywhere you go.Do they use some sort of sunflower oil synthetic milk or something?
