During the war the Germans were outta Joe.  They weren't getting shipments from South America, the only significant producer at the time.  They made stuff they called 'ersatz,' typically chicory and methadrine.  Of course, some people gotta have it.  You could if you could fork over, say, about $10K/lb, and some people did.  Personally, I would just surrender, probably if my enemies were capable of embargoing my 'fiene.

Actually, I do, I just also recognize friendly service vs. somebody who will act like a douchebag over me ordering the "wrong" way.

Sorry, I must come across as very hateful, but what I actually hate is corporations using clever marketing tactics to fool consumers into buying low quality product, then they become accustomed to the product, and quality begins to suffer.

This stands especially true in the North American market, where lower cost (lower quality) bean blends are formulated to satisfy "unique" consumer tastes and lower price expectations.

Luckily, I'm not on the service side of the industry because it would only frustrate me further.

Last time I was in a Starbucks, the employees were talking into headsets to the people in drive up; it was eerie to stand at the counter waiting for someone to notice me while three employees were wandering around having one sided conversations.

A company's having a few minor changes in their pricing structure, I must tell the world lest it go unnoticed.

skantea: My name is hard for some people to pronounce, so I always give an easy fake one.  They know (because I use debit) and they don't care.

Jimmedah Crackedcorn is that you?
