The Coffee Thread

Post by G. Keenan »

Coffee is one of the three greatest things in life. This thread is about good coffee and making recommendations about where to get it.

Currently I'm drinking "Mud People" brand beans. It's sold out of orange trucks on the streets of NYC. A girl I was dating once brought me some after a trip and now every time a friend goes to NYC I tell them to bring me back a bag and the week that ensues upon its return to me is heavenly. I highly recommend it.

So who's got other suggestions?

i dont drink coffee...never got into it...love the smell, but dont need another "habit"...so, i'll just post this coffee related bit from seinfeld

[Fresh Roasted Coffee Store]

Jerry and Elaine have cups of coffee, George is ordering his beans from the
guy behind the counter.

GEORGE: Uh, excuse me. Uh, pound of Arabian mocha java, please.

The counterperson nods to George, and moves to fill the order.

ELAINE: So, you understand how my Peterman stock options are gonna work?

GEORGE: I'm going to the bathroom.

George leaves.

ELAINE: Just, very interesting.

JERRY: Yeah, when it's your money, it's fascinating.

The guy behind the counter brings a bag of coffee over.

COUNTERPERSON: Arabian mocha java?

ELAINE: (looks for George) Mmm. (can't see him) Oh, um, I got it.

Elaine takes the bag and pays for it.

JERRY: That Arabian is strong coffee.

ELAINE: It's PLO blend.

George rejoins the gang.

ELAINE: Ohh, I got your coffee.

Elaine proffers the bag to George. He takes it and reaches for his pocket.

GEORGE: Oh Oh, here, lemme uh...

ELAINE: (waving away) Nah, nah, it's on me. (looks at her watch) Aww, man.
Okay, listen guys, I'm gonna be late. (taking her cup of coffee) I'll see
you, okay? (begins to walk away)

GEORGE: Yeah.

ELAINE: Bye.

GEORGE: Mmm.

Elaine leaves. Jerry moves to wander out of the store also, when George
stops him.

GEORGE: You see what just happened here?

JERRY: What?

GEORGE: She treated me to the Arabian mocha java.

JERRY: And you misinterpret this how?

GEORGE: She's stickin' it to me that she makes more money than me.

JERRY: I'm sure she was just being nice, buying you the coffee.

GEORGE: No, not nice. She's stickin' it to me.

JERRY: You're crazy.

GEORGE: (worked up) Stickin' it to me, Jerry.

JERRY: George.

GEORGE: (angry) Stickin' it!

George walks off, pulling an angry face.

I really like whatever Burger King has. McDonald's is crap.

I like McDonald's coffee, jerkface.

Arby's (TJ Cinnamon's) also has tasty coffee.

I generally can't function in the AM without a cup of coffee but I can't tell what is good coffee versus what is bad coffee.

I was in Guatemala a few months ago and supposedly they have the "World's Best Coffee" and it was just coffee to me.

I haven't seen that movie. Except one scene. Where he is in the board room all excited to see a midget and the midget gets mad.
