    I consider myself a connoisseur of bad office and hotel coffee. I brew Starbucks Morning Joe at home; a nice dark, strong coffee. When out and about, I enjoy sampling the worst the world has to offer. I find tasting terrible coffee to be interesting and rewarding, provided it has caffeine. Without caffeine, coffee is the antichrist of beverages.

    Why does every hotel only have Starbucks Pikes Peak coffee in the rooms???

    Surely there must be some other flavor or brand available...

    Agreed. And it's about to get a whole lot more expensive for even crappy coffee.

    Aside from the general increases due to inflation, Brazil had a drought this year which resulted in about a 20-25% reduction in the crop. Additionally many trees died and had to be replaced an they will take some time to start producing.

    Wait for them to bring out that bogus chickory blend again when prices go through the roof.

    If you see a good price on it, and can't live without it, I'd load up. Might be awhile.

    I am buying green beans now. I take me about 20 minutes to roast up a week's worth. But can't do that on the road. Might set off the smoke detector in the hotel room.

    As someone who drinks Folgers at home, I'm open to (almost) any coffee on the road.

    My wife and I are compiling a list of the World's worst NACHOS.

    So far the "lead" is shared between a Holiday Inn in Fort William, Scotland (Doritos with grated Cheddar, microwaved), and Berlin, Germany (Doritos, sausage and HP Sauce).

    I agree. Horrible. Usually tastes like it's made with dishwater.

    You're being kind. Nothing in Ontario is at least a 7.8!

    It always seems the stuff in those pouches is worse than any species of K cup you can find, which themselves are rarely as good as freshly ground beans.

    I’m with you on green beans. Roasted 40 ounces of Yirg today (in the garage…hehe) which were only about ~7\lb. I travel with a hand-crank grinder and my own keurig-cup. In the background there is the head/neck from the current build, the “Hemocaster”…
