You *won't* be able to get a dollar cup of coffee.  That's the point.

Brazil's coffee output is what effects cheap coffee prices.

As long as they keep making that avacado stuff for corn chips I'm good.

Meanwhile, Apple reports shaky outlook for Q1 earnings because of a lack of recently unemployed baristas being able to buy their products.

I don't take my coffee by drinking it anymore after reading a recent article posted on Fark so taste quality is not much of a concern. While at work,  I usually have my coffee once an hour or so at my desk.

I think it great. My coworkers, not so much.

I hope US Customs quarantines that shiat, so there won't be any fungus among us.

Half of Seattle's work force are no strangers to fungus.

Brew your own, it is legal pretty much anywhere in Canada and the US. In Alberta where I live there is a brewing store about a five minute walk from me, the owner is an avid brewer himself and has answered pretty much any question I've asked.
The best part is you get to customize the taste however you want. For instance I like extremely malty dark beers. Impossible to find commercially but actually pretty easy to make.

At what temperature do you take your coffee?

I find that the commonly recommended 190f puts me out of commission for quite some time.

I only drink coffee that's been double-filtered through a French press and kidneys.

As long as I can still get my coffee beans from East Africa or Hawaii, it's not a problem for me. Central American is not my cup of tea.

Good. Now maybe the office will buy real coffee instead of this shiatty Starbucks swill

Back when I was picking beans in Guatemala, we used to make fresh coffee, right off the trees I mean. That was good. This is shiat, but hey, I'm in a police station.
