Nah, I've tried the whole nice/fancy/quality/expensive coffee thing. And at most of the places you guys talk about (we get a lot of free coffee cards @ work). I actually find most of it fairly disgusting - espresso/cappucino/lattes are most definitely acquired tastes as far as I can tell. The higher end blends of just normal coffee just taste like coffee to me, or they're far too strong for my palate.
I'm kinda like that guy who spends months sampling 300 beers from around the world - and ends up sitting back enjoying his Canadian (
). But with coffee. Like I said, a hick.
Then again, hot liquids to me serve only 2 purposes - warming you up on a cold winter day, and waking you up on most every morning. Swill does the job admirably for either. I couldn't imagine actually drinking coffee in the afternoons/evenings here, not when it's 25 outside. I think that kinda helps with my lack of taste.
