A little tip mate.[snip]
I also had the filthiest, crappiest cup of Macca's coffee I've ever had. I tuffed up though and drank it as I run on caffiene in the morning.
I should move this to the dribble thread, but that statement is disingenuous at best, a triumph of marketing over substance.I think Macca's has a new policy where they give you a free one if the last coffee was bad. And they reckon their so called baristas are being retrained also. Hopefully its better than the first lot of 'training'.

When at Macca's the only safe way to have a coffee is a Mocha, unless you know the 'barista' (and I use that term loosely) most haven't even done the in store coffee training and the rest don't take it in or care.
I only trust one barista at any macca's in Oz (she is a real barista and made me a damned good latté on Thursday night) and FWIW I don't trust their beans anyway.
Coffee snob ? moi ?
Ain't no Baristas in the Drive Thru They've had to have changed their beans though - prior to the last few months at least their drive thru coffee was palatable. It is now absolutely crap instead of mostly crap.I think Macca's has a new policy where they give you a free one if the last coffee was bad.

I recently bought a new stove top in stainless and even though it's not made in Italy, it's a damn fine percolator. I looked at some $100 plus jobs and I couldn't see them being worth that much extra against this $35 jobby.Ditto Al, but I still love my little Italian stove top model.
Nice machine! I love coffee too. My uncle is right up there with it. He has a coffee site that is world known. Check it out.
If you want one of the best Drip Machines, get one of these. The Life and Times of the OCS-8 and OCS-12 Coffee brewersI like coffee.
My french press just broke though and trying to decide what I'm going to do next. We were doing cold brew coffee for a while but it was too much hassle and although it has a lot less acid, it also loses some taste.
I have two friends with Moccamasters and although the coffee they make is amazing, I can't justify $300 for a coffee maker.
I am leaning toward one made in Japan. Looks like a good compromise.
