Got to have that burning sugar mixed with raw sewage taste!

Good. I like their coffee once in a while. Last time I looked into it, iirc their supplier only did wholesale stuff so a consumer was pretty much unable to buy it anyways. A 12oz bag usually lasts me a couple of weeks, so I keep trying different stuff each time. And I like my coffee like my current preferred presidential candidate, black.

Mcdonalds coffee is one thing they really do right. I will probably buy this in whole bean bags like I do with 8 o clock coffee now.

McDonalds coffee is surprisingly not bad. I'll drink it in a pinch.
 
2012-10-05 12:55:13 PM  
I will probably try it. When it's just been brewed, it's better than anything from Burger King or Quik Trip.

Has anyone else here actually had brewed coffee at that temperature? A few weeks ago I started using one of those stainless steel travel press things, which is rather well insulated, and on occasion have forgotten to let the water cool down a few seconds after turning off the stove before pouring it. Believe me, you've never had coffee that's too hot until you've burned the inside of your lower lip so bad that the outer layer of flesh starts peeling off a few days later.

Bon appétit, though.

The best coffee is ALWAYS brewed at 211°+, dumbmitter. Drinking it, not so much.

Yes, since I also have a french press and we boil (therefore 212 degrees) the water.  However, I do put ice in it to cool it down.

Yeah, when you read the story and find out just how hot the coffee was, it quits being a "What a stupid coont" story. Your average farker can't comprehend the concept that a hot beverage can be served to you at an unsafe temperature, their brains just go 'Cold, Room Temperature, Hot'. They also don't understand that there are actually regulations in place stating things like this.

You're right, that chick totally got bagged on for a legitimate complaint.

Freeze your leftover coffee in an ice cube tray. When your coffee is too hot, use a frozen coffee cube to cool your coffee with no dilution.

a fresh hot cup of McDonald's coffee just won't be the same if you're not surrounded by fat screaming children, divorced weekend dads & frustrated plump soccer moms staring vacantly out the window wondering where it all went so very wrong.

Totally agree. When you look at the facts, that was a slam-dunk case. McDonalds had been settling cases like this for years out of court.

did she put the cup of coffee between her legs, something no man would do

I like McDonald's. Their coffee is good, not burned up like Starbucks. It's also cheap, consistently good and they'll refill your cup with whatever you ordered. I'd certainly try McDonald's blend at home.
 
2012-10-05 10:19:34 PM  
Commercial coffee-chain rankings according to moi (going with the big 4 since I'm not really inclined to get it from other places and they're not national):

Starbucks, despite the hatred, has decent coffee if you don't mind the espresso/slightly burned taste. I had their Seattle-only special roast last summer and it was a LOT better, so that influences me a little. It's not my favorite, but I'll take it over the others most days. 4/5 because they're everywhere.

Tim Hortons is pretty good. I don't think I've ever had a bad cup from them and it doesn't have a lingering after taste unlike $bucks. They get 4/5

Dunkin I think had better coffee 5-6 years ago, plus they raised their prices. I say this as a stock holder (what else was I going to do with that measly $200 dividend..) I'll get it on trips or when I'm being social and it's the only thing around. 3/5

McDonalds, unless it's iced, is pretty bad. Not Folgers bad, but I can't stomach it most days. 2.5/5

Wegmans has a pretty decent line of flavored coffee roasts, but I actually mail order mine from a coffee club. Boca Java has pretty amazing coffee. I found a lot of complaints about them when they changed owners (they sort of vanished for two months in between so that's why I was looking), but I've never had a problem and been getting regular shipments since about 2003. Gevalia has good coffee too but I've been so happy with Boca that I've never really looked into them; my sister gets it.

Leave your disagreements/flames at the beep :P

This is also one of those times where I actually really like the plaintiff's lawyer. McDonald's was ready to settle really fast with her, and the lawyer wondered why. He looked into it, and found that McDonald's had settled on a ton of similar cases in the past. Apparently, the hotter you brew coffee, the less coffee beans you need. McDonalds was saving SO MUCH MONEY every year brewing it super hot that it was way more cost effective to just pay settlements when people horribly burned themselves. The lawyer went to court with not only "my client was injured because of the temperature" but also "the defendant clearly knew about the problem but they put money before customers" and that's why they were able to get huge damages awarded.

People who get offended at huge damages often seem to forget that the point isn't just that the plaintiff's suffering is worth X, but also that the defendant is supposed to get hit with a large enough penalty to actually mean something to them.

It's a punishment.

Also, getting punitive damages awarded by a jury is fairly rare because the legal standard is so high. It's like finding a unicorn in your living room for most trial lawyers.

Best black coffee I've ever had was made by this cute chick that used to have a tiny stand at my morning trolley stop. I was sad when her stand disappeared.

THIS.

It looks like the mods deleted carnifex2005's post, I'm guessing due to a wound pic being judged NSFW. Here's a link to an alternate.one. Again, NSFW, and not safe for breakfast: it's an upskirt showing gory wounds in an old lady's crotch.
